Free Short Chess Lessons 1 – Knight or Bishop in Opening


in this lesson you will learn do you need
to develop your knight or your bishop first this is one instructive example
Nf3 d5 d4 c6 c4 and now it’s time for black to develop one of his
pieces should it be knight or bishop correct
answer is knight and one of the most common moves in this position is knight
to f6 but black made big mistake and he played Bishop g4 first he left his b7 pawn
unprotected and white will use it let’s just move away this Bishop on g4 and
stay with our good knight on e5 so now it’s time to just exploit this b7 pawn Queen b3 directly attacking it now black
has few ways to defend it for example Queen c8 but this is just
bad because this C line will be very dangerous for black and white will develop his pieces normally and just attack and win so is
there any better way actually no Bg4 was very big mistake and there is no
going back in this game black played Qb6 but he overlooked one really
awesome tactic Qh3 and Bishop on h5 is attacked so black needs to protect it
if he played Nf6 before this bishop would
not be in danger but now he needs to just move it away
for example Bishop g6 and then Qc8 what happens is that black has only one
possible move Qd8 and then this pawn on b7 is lost this is not the
only problem for black because he needs to take care of his rook on a8 and the
only way to do it is to put knight on d7 but now he is losing a piece
Knight to d7 and he must take it with queen but than Qa8 and rook is lost
so he just resigned this game in next video you will see why Bishop f5 is bad
so stay tuned see you soon
