IF YES, what's your favorite Chess OPENING and WHY?

Ok, mine is Sokolsky Opening (Polish Opening). It belongs to unorthodox opening that's why it's not so popular.
This is an example image of my favorite opening:
Sokolsky Opening
I like that opening because it keeps me on winning whenever I play chess on my dad and my friends. :lol:

By the way, my FIDE rating according to Chess.com is 1898. :D

I have my own unique opening that I use, which I call "The Coroner's Delegation." This often throws off my opponents and allows no room for them to attack me without sacrifice. I don't play competitively, but I do consider myself a skilled player.

I used to use the "French Defense" a lot. Now, I don't know if I'm good enough to play anyone. As far as I know, "French Defense" is pretty lame.

If I'm playing as white I use the London opening. If I'm playing as black I use the King's Indian defence.
I use the London opening because it sets up a good defence and offence at the same time. I use the King's Indian defence because it sets up a good solid defence, only problem with it though is that the London opening completely destroys it. I sometimes use the English opening when my friends are expecting me to use the London opening, just for some variation.

The style I use isn't really "official," but it works really well. At he start of every game, I bring out my knights, and then have them hop around on the board, taking pieces. Then I'll bring out my bishops and rooks to finish them off. I rarely have to use my queen.

A few months ago, I got to play the best chess player in all of Indiana, Dennis Monokroussos. He made an appearance at the local mall to raise money for the chess team at the school where he teaches. I lost so badly, but it was really awesome.

I like to play chess, but not competitively. And I'm pretty sure I'm terrible at it.
I open by moving my two pawns in front of my knights then moving my bishops up one space, so if my opponent moves those same pawns, their rooks are vulnerable.

This is how I open. If it doesn't work, I send in both horses and the bishop on the same color as the king and knock the crap out of the opponent's pieces until I eventually trap the king, usually in a corner.

Blitzkreig!
For me, I usually play the middle two pawns up one space, and move the bishops out next to the pawns on either side. Then, I send out my knights to do some damage!

I don't play chess in like tournaments or whatever but I used to play it with family & so on...

My opening I use is basically either moving one of the corner pawns 2 spaces or if I am messing around & don't care I will move one of the middle 2 pawns up 2 spaces, after that I adapt based on what my opponent does...

I play chess competitively and I'm an average player for my age (16). My favorite opening is Rui Lopez.
