d4 'sharp can mean a lot of things...' I play 1d4 most of the time.

If 1. d4 d5 I enjoy the slav on the black side.
If 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 I play the catalan, 3. g3 d5 4. Bg2 dxc4 5. Nf3 Be7 6. 0-0 0-0 7. Qc2 a6 8. a4...(the open variation).

A lot of the time black is induced to play b5 to cover c4, and then the diagonal becomes tragically weak and open for white's kb.

old benoni 1.d4 c5 2.d5 e5. Very fun for blitz.

you got it wrong like bluebabygirl said 1.e4 is an attacking move, 1.d4 is more positional, that means that you don't mean on crushing your oponent with a kingside attack, but by, lets say, weaking his Q's side and winning something like a Pawn. Although there are some real attacking variations, like the Samisch against the KID, or 4.f3 against the Nimzo, there are generally less recomenable than the Rauzer or the English attack.

Indian openings Are great! altrought they are quite complicated, the idea of attacking your opponent's central pawns is fascinating. I play often King's indian or Nimzoindian.

6. e4 way to agressive. Opening up the board when opponent is castled and you are not is not the best choice =/. You should have been castleing and developing your dark bishop.
brulla 6 ( +1 | -1 )
Blackmar-Diemer-Gambit ...is a sharp opening: 1.d4 d5 2.e4 de 3.f3, leading to many adventurous combinations.

Ironhorse I KNOW! In retrospect it is so easy to see...thanks for rubbing it in :)

pycroft, your opponent played the black side of the leningrad variation:

1 d4 f5 2 g3 Nf6 3 Bg2 g6 4 Nf3 Bg7 5 0-0 0-0 6 c4 d6 7 Nc3...

The idea behind white's 2 g3 is to counter black's pressure on the white squares (due to f5).
