Chess Strategies for Beginners will help you to understand how to start the game properly and where to place your chess pieces correctly right from the beginning.
If you waste time playing senseless pawn moves instead of developing pieces (Knights and Bishops) then you get a bad position and your chances of losing your game are increasing.
Read the following Chess tutorials to learn the basics first.
I just like these pictures...aren't they sweet?

The chess video above shows you the most common first chess moves. Study them and avoid making other inferior moves. For example, never play the edge pawns in the beginning as they have no influence on the center squares and do not help to get your pieces (Knights and Bishops) out.
And make sure you learn Chess Notation to be able to read and write chess moves.WRITE YOUR REVIEW
I will show you first some fundamental endgames that you should know. When you reach the endgame you need some basic understanding about how the king moves, without getting confused by too many pieces on the board.
Please replay the selected endgame positions and study them until you are able to handle those situations in a real game.
Yes, you want to know how to do it, I know. To checkmate the King. I will show you now a lot of interesting positions where the king is checkmated. And no! You don't have to think yourself, not yet! It is already done for you.
Just look. This will electrify your old thinking cap and give you some impulses! And maybe one day your brain might gear up. I hope these chess positions will make something move under your hat. After all, you got to start somewhere, don't you? The Checkmate

Solve some checkmate-in-one problems here. They are very easy. Hey! This is baby stuff so this should be like a snap for you.Mate-in-1
Never move silly pawns anywhere in the beginning of the game, especially not on the outer files like Black has done below. You just lose time and run behind in piece development.
This means that your opponent can and will attack you with his pieces, once he has castled. Pieces are: knights, bishops, rooks and the queen, not pawns! He can attack you as he has more pieces developed than you have. He will simply overrun you in the center because he has more knights, bishops, rooks and the queen actively placed and you got no pieces placed actively to defend yourself. Why? Because you have wasted your time to push some silly pawns here and there and may have not even castled.It is very important that you understand this principle!
Read this text above a hundred times to get this into your head or you will never ever become a good player. So don't touch useless pawns in the beginning of the game.
You should first move one or two center pawns, then develop your knights and bishops towards the center. Best is to get the kingside knight and bishop out, then castle quickly. See the white position. White is going to get out his kingside bishop next and castle afterwards.
You should learn how to read and write down chess moves, called Chess Notation.How to start a game
