I favor unorthodox openings, as these have given better results than more conventional lines. 1.a3 is a ready line for me (I've faced, no joke, every opening reply by Black against it--even Nh6 on one occasion) as White; I prefer to play as Black if given the choice (I find playing Black more versatile).
