Don't play like that!

Learn Chess online and improve your playing strength. A beginner plays against an expert in the following game. You will see a typical playing pattern of a beginner.

He just puts his pieces everywhere he likes. Pushes pawns at the edge of the board where they don't control vital center squares and places knights at the corner as well, where they are weakly placed.

He is not able to castle anymore as he has wasted too much time making useless moves, and his king got stuck in the center. He did not develop his kingside pieces first to be able to castle on time. Don't play like that! This is just terrible play!


No centerplay at all...
