Default "Move 1 poll", not "move 1 discussion"

Here's the poll for move 1. It closes in 3 days, and the discussion can be found at: http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=21564

Oops, the title should have said "Move 1 poll", not "move 1 discussion". Too late to edit

Supermods can do it. At least now they can use their "let's mess up the title of this thread" ability/habit for some useful purpose...

As black, we like to play:

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 f5

But, most people do not like this opening. It does well (sometimes) over-the-board but we have not tried it against an engine.

The only advantage I can see with that opening is people not knowing how to respond. That won't be an issue with an engine.

Then why you voted "other"? Or am I missing something?
(which actually works in my advantage, as I want to play the sicilian which I know better, so if you split the votes for e5 into "e5" and "others", it works to me...)
(edit 2: well, I see there are 7 votes for the sicilian already, we can purcede... hehe)
