White Rep #1 The Queenside Stonewall (QS)
With White, my goal is solid space and a safe king, which is why I seek the Botvinnik Formation/System, yet with the king's knight on f3. My kibitzing on this game Karpov vs N Caro, 1970 sums up my views, and is a stem game for this repertoire.

White Rep #2 The Reti
I used to play the Reti almost exclusively, with personal lines vs the advanced and accepted lines, but have not enjoyed the lack of space as White. Below you will see some of my ideas.

White Rep #3 KIA/White Dragon
Begin 1.g3, responding to 1..e5 with 2.c4, and 1..d5 with 2.Nf3 a la Thomasz Markowski

White Rep #4 Yusupov/Rubinstein Attack
This very solid repertoire is basically a Zukertort-Colle while specifically seeking a stonewall formation with an early f4.

White Rep #5 Belligerent Queen's Pawn
This repertoire features the classical d4-c4 pawn front with early e- and f-pawn pushes. The Samisch Nimzo and Geller Gambit response to the Slav are two examples.

Rep #6 Kings Pawn ideas
Ideas in the Rossolimo/Canal and Closed Sicilians, as well as the Center Game.

With Black:

Rep #7 Immediate Strike
No rest for White, as 1.d4 c5 and 1.e4 d5 or ..Nf6 puts him to work immediately.

Rep #8 The Rock based on e6
My most fully fleshed-out system, I am looking for a closed center and slower play in hopes of maneuvering my opponent into unfamiliar strategic waters. 1.e4 e6 2.d4 c5 3.d5 Franco-Benoni with an early ..Ne7 1.e4 e6 2.d4 c5 3.Nf3 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Bb4+ with different responses to c3, Nd2 and Bd2. 1.e4 e6 2.d4 c5 3.c3 d5 with potential French Advanced and Sicilian Alapin lines.

1.d4 e6 2.c4 Bb4+ accelerated Bogo
1.d4 e6 2.Nf3 f5 Dutch, usually the Alekhine variation, with an early ..Ne4 and ..Bf6, deciding on the queenside pawns and pieces later.
