1- Sveshnikov or Taimanov Sicilian for Black

2- Black repertoire against the Minor Openings: 1.f4, 1.g3, 1.b3 etc.

3- Ruy Lopez for White

4. Something other than Benko Gambit for Black. 

( Benko Gambit: I think anyone with half a brain knows that White is objectively better, but of all the lines that Black can choose where he accepts a worse position for practical chances in an unbalanced game, I think the Benko is one of his best options.) Sam Shankland

Against the Sicilian I would be happy to see Shveshnikov, Taimanov or Schevenningen variations & I am waiting for a full cpuese against the english opening, because when i play against the english I go to the symmetrical variation and either trying to transpose into Maroczy Bind, or playing like against the Gran Prix attack, fianchettoing my king's bishop and advancing my queenside pawns. Grünfeld would be also interesting for black. For white a course against Nimzowitch 1. e4 Nc6 defence is completing the repertoire.

Modern Benoni for sure.

I am afraid that I would like no additional openings in Chessmood because I think it would defeat its purpose. I think the point is to have just one Repertoire so we can be specialists in it and practice , watch the repertoire  in the streams and fix our errors. 

I mean that we should not have different openings against one opening (One Sicilian is enough ;-). I would focus on adding advanced content to the existing openings, Model games, Common mistakes, etc, and adding courses against openings not fully covered yet (English Opening) or against sideline openings

Some may dislike it, but it is my opinion ;-)

I totally agree with you and this is one of the reasons I like chessmood, but there are some exceptions, for example, a person who doesn't feel comfortable in Benko gambit and wants to learn something else, or someone has his favorite opening and he wants to learn more about it, just wondering which openings you prefer more.

Thanks for your opinion.

The KID and Sveshnikov, which I can play, but not that well.  

I'm not faring too well with the Maroczy Bind, whichI don't love, but I'm giving it a shot here.  :-)
