What do you play as black? I play french, and sicilian najdorf and dragon
metaphoriceagle 19 ( +1 | -1 )
Sicilian Dragon and Najdorf, King's Indian, Queen's Gambit Declined. I used to like playing Roy Lupez but sometimes it leads to most boring games, so I quit playing it.

1.e4
french with Sc3 -> classical variation
Caro-Kann

1.d4
Wolga-Benkö-Gambit
King's Indian
Stuff between Benoni, Old-Indian and Kings Indian because low-rated players normally don't accept and play Wolgagambit

Vs.1.e4 I'm partial to 1...e5,the Caro-Kann,the Pelikan Sicilian and Nimzovitches Defense. Vs. 1.d4:the Grunfeld,the Tarrasch,the Black Knight's Tango and the QGA.

i like alekhine mmmm....... i'm hungry

usually against e4, i play alekhine or french.
and against d4, i play semi-slav.

sometimes i'll play marshall gambit in scandinavian as well, and also some really weird openings that should never be played.

Sicilian Dragon, French, and Semi-Slav. Currently considering adding the Nimzo-Indian to my repertoire.
lespaul 16 ( +1 | -1 )
I play The sicilian, The KID, and the hypermodern defences (double fianchetto and the like).

I'm not particularly good at the sicilian, but I really like it because of the games which it creates... always a lot of fun.

Opening... Against 1. e4 I usually answer with c5 (Sicilian) or e5 depending on the individual... Against 1. d4 I most always answer with Nf6 due to the many lines you can transpose to, but once again I also play d4 depending on the individual...
budakkampung 26 ( +1 | -1 )
Vs e4 - I choose to play French which I start playing about 4 month ago. Before this I play Pirc and and Caro-Kann.

Vs d4 - Grunfeld, King Indian ( I'm not to good when facing d4). Currently trying to understand Nimzo-Indian..

vs Others e6 , g6 ,c6 , b6 or d6
themagic_1 12 ( +1 | -1 )
depends! its all depends on the white openning move.
1 e4 I will go for sicilian
1 d4 indian defenses

I like to be dynamic as black attack!

"Give me any opening with an O.K. position and I will beat any player with any opening 300 points below me"

-Alex Yermolinksky

Seriously, I have a friend who is an FM, and he never studied openings. Perhaps, I am nearsighted, but I seem to feel that the middle and endgame can win games on a patzer level, not the opening.
peppe_l 8 ( +1 | -1 )
I play Caro-Kann vs 1.e4, Slav vs 1.d4, Slav-style setups vs everything else.
salamander 15 ( +1 | -1 )
I like King's Indian Defence, or Sicilian Najdorf, but sometimes I try something new (often when feeling "frisky", and then come unstuck!)
drgandalf 7 ( +1 | -1 )
I open with KIA for White; French against e4; Slav against d4; Dutch against c4.
lorddreyfuss 7 ( +1 | -1 )
I specialized... Against e4 - Sicilian
Against others - Benoni, Blumenfeld, or QGD systems
justholdingon 28 ( +1 | -1 )
My preferences as Black against "e4" I prefer the Caro-Kann. Against "d4"
I usually play the Orthodox Queen's Gambit
declined -- I'm uncomfortable capturing the
"c4" pawn, directly. IF white doesn't know the
Cambridge Springs Defense at all (it's evident early on), then I give it all I have (which isn't a whole
lot)
sigve 0 ( +1 | -1 )
My openings as black... 1.e4 c6, 1.d4 1...d5 2.c4 c6 or 1...Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 (3.Nf3 b6, 3.g3 d5), 1.c4 c6, 1.Nf3 Nf6, 1.f4 d5, 1.b3 d5, 1.b4 e5 and so on...
