Who has the beter start?

  • #1


    I was wondering who has the beter start off position black or white? Why?

    BTW I play black... =)

    Technically speaking, white has the advantage because it starts first. However, since black can anticipate whites future moves in the opening, it can quickly gain an equal standing.

    See the stats from large number of Master games at http://www.chess.com/explorer/ - after the common first moves white definitely wins more often than black. The advantage of the first move is very real in the hands of an experienced player.

    White has the advantage on first move.

    And because it's easy to attack than to defend, I prefer White to have already a little advantage.
