Chess Opening Flowchart

AdmiralAdama99

I've been studying openings and I created a flowchart of the major chess openings. Figured I'd share. Leave a comment if the flowchart helps you and you want me to keep developing it : )

 

Chart is in PDF format. Zoom in to view. ==> PDF <==

 

Made in Microsoft Visio. Here's the original file if you want to modify it. Please leave my name and email address in there, and post a link to your version in this thread so we can check it out. ==> Visio VSD <==

Chart written in 2018. Links updated 2021 due to popular demand.

Recently, I have been wanting to do this same thing ... only with graphics showing each move on the board for visual presentation. I thought it would make a cool wall poster. I play 1.d4 2.c4 and thought it would be cool to have an opening chart / tree. Great chart!

good job

here  some help.

Out of the scotch game the two knights defence can ocurre here but then normaly it transpose to the Max Lange attack not to the fred liver. 

In the queens gambit declined line the tarasch defence shoud be named as another variation of it.

In the Ben Oni you frogot to mentioned the main line with 3. ....e6

I would love to see it broken up into separate pages based on the first move. Then it would be easier to print. Good job on a fine flowchart, though!

I added the Microsoft Visio VSD file today. Feel free to make modifications. Just leave my name and email in there, and post a link to your version in this thread so we can see your changes.

I'm not active on here anymore, so send me an email if you need anything. Email is in the PDF. Thanks and enjoy.
