Im not an 1.e4 player but i love watching ruy lopez games due to its vast number of plans, its flexibility and complexity. It also teaches me a lot about chess in general.

I am a Scotch/Göring fan because of its inherent soundness combined with its possibilities for active play. A bonus is that most of my opponents don't have a clue how to play it.

The King's gambit is quite an adrenaline rush when it gets complicated.  Also, I like the Evan's Gambit but it wasn't on the poll.

It's called the Donkey
  

Those who want to go by my perverse footsteps play such pawn structure with fuzzy atypical still strategic orientations

You can either put which one you like or which one you think is the most dynamic.

Thanks!
