Learn theoretical sound opening chess moves. This will enable you to make strong chess moves in your chess games right from the start.
"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."
by Chess Champion Bobby Fischer
Chess tutorials and chess books help you to learn chess openings to be able to make the best chess moves when you start your game. To know various opening systems is basic chess knowledge of every good chess player.
Learn Chess Openings in general, but become a specialist in a few selected openings. This will save you a lot of time and energy in a serious chess game.
You will be able to play the first 12 chess moves or more in just about two minutes without much thinking. You don't switch off your brain completely, but you play so much faster and more efficient than before, especially if you understand the plan of your selected opening.
You should replay various chess openings to find out what type of opening you like. After that build a complete repertoire for Black and White. You learn this in
GM Smirnov's Chess Opening Video Courses
For Beginners and Advanced, who have not much time and need an opening repertoire that covers up almost everything as fast as possible, go to learn chess openings fast and learn just a few selected systems like the London System as White or to put it to the extreme learn just ONE opening, the b6-System or the the UNIVERSAL SYSTEM.
I give you an overview about Opening Chess Moves below.
| Ruy Lopez (spanish) Chess Opening
Classical or Cordel Variation
Qf6 Chess Variation
|Scotch Chess Opening|
|Italian opening (Giuoco Piano)
|| Two Knights Defense|
|Russian defense (Petrov defense)|
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.
|Sicilian Defence||French Defence|
|Caro-Kann Defense||Scandinavian Defense|
|Pirc Defense||Alekhine Defense|
Your opponent knows you and what chess opening you usually play and will prepare an opening line against you to beat you. Below I will show you some interesting opening systems to surprize your opponent yourself.
|Evans Gambit||Kings Gambit|
|Nimzovich-Larsen Attack||Stonewall Attack|
Play the above Opening Chess Moves with White to upset your Opponent. This will confront him with new opening lines that he probably doesn't know and will make his home preparations useless. But use the Evans Gambit and the Kings Gambit just as a surprise weapon, because these Opening Systems are very aggressive and should be studied well before you apply them.
If you have the black pieces and your opponent plays first move e4, try to set up the Italian position as Black. This means that your black bishop should be on c5 (attacking f2) and your knights are placed on the natural squares c6 and f6.
This is a good and solid setup for Black. If White plays the Scotch, then you still can play Bc5 later on in some variations. Make sure you get your pieces out fast to be able to castle on time.
|Qf6-Anti-Spanish (Lopez)||Jaenisch Schliemann Gambit|
