62 ( +1 | -1 ) Take pickYou can take your pick, as there are dozens of books written proving that there is only one perfect opener. Of course each book seems to pick a different opener as its perfect one. I am just a mediocre chess player, but from my experience, openers mostly depend on your own personality. Are you aggressive? Are you over protective? Do you like to push for the unusual? Me, I do all three. Sometimes in the same game. Of course this is probably why I suck at chess most of the time, with an occasional burst of good playing.
