My friend I think you are unaware of what Sicilian Najdorf is. It produces the most exciting games.
This is one of Kasparov's most widely used opening.
I dont think I need to say anything about Kasparov

Najdorf I am well aware of it what it is, and indeed have played against it with one of your mates (e4c5Nf3d6).

As for Kasparov, are you trying to say that because he uses it a lot, THEREFORE it's the best?

Well... For white: Ruy Lopez - Exchange Variation - Almost impossible lost with this...

For black: Caro-Kan is very secure...

The best opening An opening is said to be good if the player knows its weakness and its strong points and if he can play with it naturally (because of his style).

I think that in the best hands almost all opening are "the best". :o)

I have to agree with rafaelluiz The "best" opening is one that personally gives you a high scoring percentage.

The best opening is the one with an element of suprise, which fits your positional and tactical prerequisites.

Seriously, at beginner and into intermediate levels, openings don't matter. Some players play 20 moves without even know any of the reasons behind the moves. For example, I won many games with the Latvian Defense (2...f5), but if your at a professional level, you have to use outstanding openings.

My favorite "real opening" is also the Najdorf, especially for white. Like Fischer, I enjoy the Bc4 line, which gives white excellant attacking chances.

My 2 cents,

All major openings are good Strategy and good combinations are far more important, particularly for us mere mortals,
