Hi- for a while, I've been looking for a good opening as white. I pretty much always open with 1. e4, and have tried others (Such as c4- d4, Nf3 etc.) but never enjoyed the positions from those first moves. I've played the Italian for a while but have recently gotten bored of it and the lines that I enjoyed playing (such as the Evans gambit) seem to favor black with correct play. So I'm looking for something that's somewhat sharp and tactical, but not overly sharp such as the King's gambit. I've tried out the Ruy Lopez a bit but the opening always seems to be really positional- maybe I'm just playing the wrong lines?
I've pretty much got something I enjoy playing against the Sicilian, Scandinavian etc. but just trying to find something comfortable against e5. Any recommendations?
Thanks in advance
