What's everyone's favorite openings and why? What makes for good play, or what do you try to avoid? Doesn't have to be complex, don't even need to put a name to it or anything.I'm still a fairly new player, and am still paying more attention to my middle and end games. I usually play e4 for white, as I enjoy the sharper games that seem to come from it.However, one game I was playing Black, and was exposed to an opening which I later learned was dubbed the Fried Liver Attack (ChessMaster told me so). I've played it once or twice since, and think it's quite a bit of fun.The moves:1. e4 e52. Nf3 Nc63. Bc4I believe that's the Italian opening?3. .. Nf6Two Knight Defense (I only learn the names of the openings when I review the games in ChessMaster).4. Ng5 d55. xd5 Nxd56. Nxf7 Kxf7King has to take the knight.7. Qf3 Ke6King has to protect the knight.8. Nc3Start to build up pressure....It was a cool game (at least I thought). White gave up a knight for a pawn, but was able to bring my king out to the center of the board. I eventually lost the game - though I'm sure that was more due to my lack of skill than the position itself.I hope my notation is correct - it's been a while.-Ortman
