Opening Strategies

Aug 4, 2016, 2:04 PM 0

Hello everyone. Here is a list of the best ways to conduct your opening during a chess game. This list is meant mostly for beginners, but anyone can read it. I will soon be posting some Mid Game Strategies and End Game Strategies.


Develop your minor pieces (knights and bishops) before major pieces (queen and rooks). Make few pawn moves, but allow your minor pieces to be able to develop fast. Early castling is advisable. It is a good idea to try and occupy the centre. If you can, you have a spatial superiority and more room to move your pieces. Rooks should be retained on the back rank, preferably on open files.


Thanks for reading, and if you have any more ideas, please post at the bottom of this page!
