13 | Opening Theory

In my first two posts according to that theme I advised to be patient. And there is a good reason for such a patience. It needs time to experiment with different openings before you may be sure, which opening may be suitable and which one not.-

So may be someone, let us call him Felix, has come to the conclusion that he wants play with white

1. b3

and with black

a) 1. e4 c5

b) 1. d4 d5

c) 1. c4 e5

This is now the base of his opening repertoire. Nevertheless it would not mean, that Felix has to use it for the rest of his (chess-) life. Naturally he always can change later to other openings. But he should stick to this one for a while to get confident with its ideas and pattern.

What should be his next step now?

Well, I think he needs more information according to the chosen openings. He can find it in books ( f.e in libraries), dvd`s, video`s, online articles etc.

Then he should start reading and replaying to get an impression of the main ideas and pattern of the chosen opening. Perhaps he can play some free games with it to get a feeling for the opening.

Does it still suits him or starts he feeling a little bit uncomfortable with it? It is too sharp, too complcated, too boring etc. ? 

Well , then it would have been no big waste of time and he could look for someting more suitable.

But Felix is decided. He wants to play

1.b3!


 

 

We shall accompany him a little bit in building up his white repertoire
