Various openings
Compiled by athyn
--*--

I am going to try to explore different openings and provide a game for each one. Some, if not most, of these will be the 'opening of the day'. The games are usually the opening of the day, but some (like 8/18) were found using the opening of the day and then the opening explorer which looks for positions, these positions can be arrived at in a game with a different opening.
