1. Petrov Defense
2. King's Indian Defence Petrosian System

I dislike forcible attacks the most.
London System, Caro Kann Defense, Larsen Opening.
A good opening, a mediocre opening, and a meh opening.
1. Durkin Opening (1. Na3) (the best of best, guaranted)
2. Sokolsky Opening (1. b4)
3. Saragossa Opening (1. c3)
(but I don't play them frequently...)
”I dislike forcible attacks the most.“
This is why no one will remember your name. *Brad Pitt puts on the helmet*
Oh, the answer is:
1. Nimzo-Larsen Attack, Reti Opening, Van't Krujs Opening (Nf3, e3, and b3 in any order ball all 3 are played in the opening).
2. King's Gambit
3. Budapest Gambit
The Flying Orangutan Attack!
I don't have favorites. My goal is to be able to play any opening at a proficient level... I like open and closed positions... I enjoy attacking and defending... Positional chess and tactical chess... My main interest is in collecting opening 'ideas' for the tool box rather then memorizing large continuation trees.
