Hi , I am an amatuar player and i am looking at learning an opening repertiore.
What are the best openings for an attacking player who likes open games and alot of tactical play ? I do not like Blocked positions.
well, first start with Tactics, and oppening Ideas, but these openings should help, don't go very far into theory yet
Thanks for the reply. I have been finding all of this Opening theory and opening memorisation a bit Daunting. How many openings Would an average player need to know?
If you stick to one opening move, not much, if you stick to one respoce for each of the four most common first moves, that should work. for example
as white. 1. e4
against 1.e4 e5
against 1.d4 Nf6
against 1.c4 c5
against 1.Nf3 Nf6
those are just examples. but after that, Know the general Ideas.
You probably shouldn't be memorizing opening lines just yet. Instead, concentrate on developing all your pieces quickly and safely.
