The Move you Never Make

Hey guys! I'm not sure if anyone will read this, but I just wanted to share one thing I have learned in the two months I've been on here.

It's the move you never make.

Bishop to b5.

Why?

Because to avoid bloodshed, your opponent will move their pawn to c6. The move that comes next is usually bishop to a4, which then makes it possible for your opponent to move their pawn to b5. 

This whole ordeal simply wastes moves. Either your bishop will be captured or you will have to move him backwards. 

 

Planning ahead makes a huge difference in how your game will turn out.
