Beginning Chess Lessons: Part 4 : How to Spot Openings in a Chess Game


Welcome back, this is John Livingstone again,
for Expert Village. And discussing Chess, and we’ve gone through many facets of the
game, but one important facet we haven’t touched on yet is the openings. And as I mentioned
in my previous sections, the openings are very important, because it is really the time
when the basis of your game is being laid down. And some general concepts; the primary
one is to get your pieces out there quickly, and get them out towards the center of the
board. Now having said that, there are many different opening variations, and to make
it more complicated, there are variations within variations. And masters study these
things constantly; there’s new concepts coming out, and so on. But what I want to do in this
section is to show you some of the more popular openings in play today, and some of the main
lines of play of the beginning of those particular openings.
