try to stick to K or Q try to stick to K or Q Gambit...lots of variants, and room for improvising. QG is safer, I think :)

Take pick You 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.

terry_boyer yeah, it depends on my mood too.
I like QG mostly because lower-players usually take the pawn (which is a good thing), and with tougher opponents it gives me a solid position after 3. Nf3
