Best first opening repertoire for beginners to improve

Preusseagro

Ok

the itelian is the best way for beginners

4. c3 leads to an standart open game which the developing moves are very easy to find and ist is not very risque

or 4. d3 which is qiet play with focusing on an safe position.

4 d4, the estrin gambit, i would not recommend for beginners.

The french exchange for white

You see the pieces are on very natural places and your king is in safety and noone lost the center.

I diagree that the russina opning should be learned for beginners. 

In Spanish mabe the berlin defence

And i not sure if to recommend the QG for beginners becuase of the many vaiations,the positional game and Tarasch and Albins ncountergambit. And if white plays the QG it is better for beginners to take the pawn  but not try o holding it. Tarsch is too complicated for beginners. Mainly because of the isloated pawn(not bad but you have to think about making it a good piece.

About the QD i wrote more in an other post with the same theme.

So my tipps are further choose an opining and try to play it very often. Analyse maybe with an stronger player which moves you did were good/bad and why. If you fall into an trap. Look after that for better moves. And combine it with learning tactics.

Wandering from opening too opning is not very good as the routine is no there.

And why are we talking about playing aggainst computers show that this and that opning is refuted or not good in an therad for teaching beginners.

Please tell me why you don’t think the Russian (Petroff) Defence is good for beginners? I am wondering because I have heard others suggest it to beginners because it leads to open positions, piece play, less to deal with than 2...Nc6 (after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3), and is sound to the GM level. All of this seems to fit what many coaches recommend for a developing player’s repertoire.

And what do you recommend a beginner play against 1.d4, if not the QGD or QGA?

Benko for active play.

By the way find sources with a lot of explanations, not only lines to rote memorize (quite useless).

Developing your as the black player kingside knight first leads to some variations that are more complicated then the variations after developing the queenside bishop. For example this

 

The Urrosow gambit is very agressiv and can lead to position were the black players only defend. and defending is for weaker players more dificult. Even if you plays 3...Nc6 the russian player get out of his comfort zone and it changes into the two knights defence were the black side is able to go wrong more easially.

An other example

Black has no chance here to refute the gambit so. This kind of game occurs more easially.

Yes the other lines are less imitading the same goes for the black queenside bishop openings,where such gambits ocuurs less easially. See the scotch or italian opening.

Ok d4 part i wrote not clear enough. 

As a begiiner i wont recomend you to play the QD as white. If as a begiiner you face 1.d4 d5, 2.c4 i would recommend you to take the pawn but not try to defend yor pawn on the clline cipmly developing would be be good there for example like this

And i know the moves may not be the best but at least for black you can explain the moves with the opning pricipiallys (kingsafety, developing, center) without worring about your position like the isolated queenspawn in the Tarrasch,, the many of variations in the slaw or the risque play in the Albin countergambit.

And one last thing if an beginner realy want to this or an other not recomnended system. I would teach him the system but with more time in leaing it and not generally in an beginners training group but in personal lessons.

It was ask for beginners. So Benko is more positional with maneuverin the pieces so i would not recommend this for beginners.
