All Chess Openings Explained

Chess Openings

It was the first time that he faced this opening chess trap so his opponent manage to beat him in the first few moves... It was a miniature! If you have some unknown words in the above sentence then stay with me because I'll revial to you five (5) very basic things in the opening. After this lesson you can start a chess game propertly and with confidence. The first moves of the game are very important and you'll learn how to develop your pieces successfully.

Advanced Chess Openings

All openings today have their own name and these have analyzed for hundreds of years. The best players know exactly which plans to follow in order to equalize the position or gain an advantage. If you want to start your game perfectly, with the correct strategy and without losing quickly, then you should study some of the opening courses that I prepared for you.

The opening in chess is characterized by the first eight to ten moves in which you must develop your pieces quickly from their original positions. This is a very important chess strategy which will help you later to attack the opponent king and win. We cannot attack immediately, without having developed our pieces; for example only with few pieces, or the "Superman" piece. Our queen alone cannot capture all of the opponent's pieces.

The Main Goal In The Opening

It is the first gift made through the website so that someone can give his mail and receive future notifications. While you, a member of the page, can download it.

This is the second free gift on the website; it's a series of free video chess lessons. It is a small course that I made many years ago but I have recently renewed it, at 2020. The duration of the courses is more than an hour and a half; the included lessons are:

  • Lesson 01 Traps in the opening
  • Lesson 02 Amazing attacks

The first lesson is everyone's favorite since there are many different traps at the beginning of the game, ie at the opening. With these traps you can beat your opponents very quickly but knowing them you will avoid short defeats. So the first lesson is very important for your improvement in chess. These lessons are not for the novice chess player. So I tried to make gifts for the whole range of chess players, whether you are a complete beginner or a more advanced in the chess ladder.
