"In chess so much depends on opening theory, so the champions before the last century did not know as much as I do and other players do about opening theory.
So if you just brought them back from the dead, they wouldn’t do well. They’d get bad openings."

For Black

If you play 1...e5 as Black, you should know how to play the right setup against White's different opening lines. To cover all that knowledge I recommend Play the open games as Black by GM John Emms.

For White

If Black plays not e5 but something else... If you have the white pieces and start with 1.e4 and Black does not answer 1..e5 this is no problem as he must play a system, right? And you can study all the systems that are available to the black pieces.

After some time you will know how to handle each system that is known unto man. There are different opening systems to be learned. But to penetrate deeper into the spirit of any particular chess openings you have to buy some good chess books/DVD's about the openings you like and begin to specialize. This saves time and effort.

So, if Black plays not 1..e5 - so what, after a while you will know the system he has selected and you know the correct set up for White. You will be prepared. It takes time to learn all this, but you will get there eventually, don't worry.

Start with the Sicilian Defense and the French Defense, after you have studied first the open games above where black answers 1...e5.

The Sicilian and French chess openings are very popular and occur quite often. Here you can study many games in detail. Just click on the link below under the image.
