I tell you a secret. When I entered a chess club as a beginner, I was losing, losing and losing for the next few months to come. Because nobody had told me any chess strategies for beginners.
It is quite normal that you lose in the beginning as most players got years of practical experience and knowledge. So how can you match that? You can't, my friend! You must lose at first. That's the way it is!
You are warmed up now. Try to find a winning move!

Yes, my friend we get there. We come to the chess openings now. This is great fun. When you know an opening well, you don't even have to think for the first twelve moves or more. You just play the moves within a few minutes. And if your opponent has no idea, how to open the right way, you just run him over in no time at all...
How do I start my game? What is the right plan?
Good chess openings will guide you and bring you on the right path.
I tell you something, a lot of games are lost already before they even started, right in the chess opening. Many beginning players just don't have a clue how to start a chess game properly and they get overrun by stronger players right from the start. They have not the slightest chance to get the pieces out properly or they put the pieces on wrong squares or run early into a devastating attack or, or, or....
Example: Don't move the pawn on f7 beside your king! Or you lose the exchange - rook for a knight! See the following game. And don't move this pawn in similar situations as this is equally bad.
If you would always start with e4 in every game you play, you have still a lot to learn which can take up a lifetime, believe me. You could specialize on e4 in your entire chess career and play nothing else with the white pieces.
Many grandmasters play positional chess openings starting with d4,c4 or Nf3. But you are not ready for that.
Learn the right setup for Black. If you have White and like to play d4 from time to time yourself, just to get the feel for it, then I recommend the Colle System - Basic Chess Moves for you. This chess opening system is easy to learn.
It is important to know the Colle System when you have the black pieces, because sooner or later an opponent will play it against you. When you have Black and like to play the Cambridge-Springs, but your opponent does not play the pawn to c4, but to c3 instead (Colle-System) then what are you going to do then?
When you play Colle as White, then you gain a good understanding of this opening and know how to handle it, when you have to play against it with the black pieces.
