Ding Ding . Round 2 ... Hello Again !

Well i have decided to start playing chess again on the net after a 3 month break or so .

Now i have decided that in an effort to spice things up , I am going to learn all new openings . More specifically , the openings that are the most popular .

I am doing some of my own research but would also like to know or have a little help from anyone else with info on what are the 6 most popular openings and defences . 3 for white and 3 defences for black against these openings .

im going to finish up my research and poll my archives of games . so please post the 3 white and 3 black openings and defences you either know are or beleive to be the most popular .


PS I hope there are some old faces i can recognise on this site still .

Openings These are popular at the high-level now, although I don't know if they're the most popular.

Ruy Lopez (Berlin, Main line, variants like Archangelsk/Zaitsev), Sicilian (Najdorf, Sveshnikov), QGA, Slav, QID, English.
