I'm returning to chess. I used open as 1. d4 when white, but have switched to 1. e4 instead (I find it is more interesting). When I played 1. d4, I constantly found myself transposing into a symmetrical development against my opponent - usually due to playing Queens Gambit, but also from other lines.
I'm looking for a general list of black responses to explore so I can avoid a symmetric position when my opponent plays 1. d4
By reference, when white plays 1. e4 - black can respond with strong moves that force the white player into very non-symmetrical development (Sicilian or Caro-Kann).
I used to play a very positional set of openings, but am currently leaning towards openings that favor tempo and greater tactical possibilities. I play mostly correspondence or slow over the board matches. I don't want to rely on openings that rely on tricks and traps my opponent might miss.
