As you probably nowknow, "King of the hill" (KOTH) is a variant of chess where one can win either like in classical chess or by putting the king in the central squares, namely d4, e4, d5 and e5, by a legal move.

I would like to collect some information about opening in this variant. More precisely, we can try to answer the following questions.

  1. What are some examples of opening which are reasonably good in normal chess but almost losing in KOTH?
  2. Conversely, are there some examples of opening which are reasonably good in KOTH but almost losing in normal chess?
