when learning an opening say queens pawn games like kings indian or dragon which should you learn first and than related openings next imstarting to learn some of these well right now im seam to be playing from memorising certain lines and than i get lost in the opening?
I don't think I understood a lot of that but I'll try to answer it. Learn whichever one you feel most comfortable in. If you get lost whenever your opponent plays something other than the lines you've memorised then you're going about learning the wrong way. You should focus on the PLANS AND IDEAS of the lines rather than just memorising them. Go through some games in the lines you're interested in..
