Four knights I would love to hear some opinion of the better players here at gameknot about this opening: is it better for white or black or is it quite equal?

It's a very boring system imho, until you try something like the leipzig / halloween gambit with white. There is a topic about that 'breeze' in the four knights game somewhere here on the forum.

4 knights Con respecto a la defensa de los 4 caballos considero que es efectiva para las negras, si observamos la base de datos de gameknot con respecto a la defensa de los 4 caballos su efectividad con respecto a las negras es aproximadamente 53% y con respecto a las blancas es un 36%, pero recordemos que en el medio juego elaboramos nuestros respectivos planes, debemos ir ganando espacio, y buscando la victoria. Espero que la opinion satisfaga tu inquietud.

RE I don't speak spanish, but I do speak french, so if I understood well, the opening is clearly better for black in the games database here :-)
Actually that's what I wanted to hear, I play a lot the Alekhine with black, but through transpositions I can reach the four knights..
BTW, just bought a book on the 4 four knights and I don't think it's so boring... many interesting variations in it with both colors having equal chances..

Halloween Gambit The Halloween Gambit is a very trappy line, but even by following the databases you should be able to get through the main lines fine.
