Okay so someone already made the forum thread where the community votes for which chess openings are favored the most. But I think that forum post had some flaws in it because it put both white and black piece openings together, and it also grouped both e4 and d4 openings for black. The battle on that forum post is finishing so I have created a new thread that has better categories.
Every 24 hours you can post a comment saying one of 5 openings to upvote and one to downvote. Each opening starts with 15 points. Upvoting adds 1 point and downvoting takes away 1 point. Once an opening reaches 0 points, it will be eliminated. The last standing opening wins for that category. This will be for 3 categories. I have chosen the 5 openings that are played the most at master level:
OPENINGS FOR WHITE:
Queen's Gambit (or any Queen's Pawn Opening)
OPENINGS FOR BLACK AGAINST E4:
King's Pawn Defense
Sicilian Defense (Any Variation)
OPENINGS FOR BLACK AGAINST D4:
Queen's Gambit Declined
Nimzo/Queen's Indian Defense
King's Indian Defense
You should probably upvote the openings that you play. If you don't play one of the openings I have listed, you can pick whichever 2nd choice you'd play. I want to have only 5 openings to keep it simple.
If you wish you can upvote and downvote the same openings every time you comment, just as long as there is a 24 hour gap between each of your comments to keep it fair.
Let the battle begin and may the best openings win!
