Hi! My name is Ken and I am here to talk to
you about playing Chess. As I’ve already pointed out, I’ve shown you 2 openings; the King’s
Pawn opening or the Queens Pawn opening. Those are the two most popular. However, there are
other ones that are also popular. Another popular one is the Queen’s Bishop. This is
the Queen and this is the Bishop, so looking just a little bit closer at the board, again
the Queen, this is her Bishop and another opening is the Queen’s Bishop opening which
moves it Pawned out towards the center. Once again, we are trying to get to the center
of the board with a powerized. Here we do it by getting a Pawn out there, so that’s
another opening that is very popular and then we develop our pieces as we did in the past.
Another opening that is also popular is to take the Bishops to the side. This means opening
the piece up here and then ultimately moving the Bishop into this diagonal and it gives
you a diagonal view across the board. Another variation of this is to open up the other
Bishop to the black Bishop and to come here. Once again, the Bishops now go diagonal. They
only move diagonal if you recall and this gives them power to converge here on the center
where the power is. The Knights are developed in the same fashion as before blocking the
Bishops but ready to attack. Then you can move out your Pawns in this kind of fashion.
Don’t forget to castle the Queen to castle the King to protect the King in a position
and then the Queen is the last piece to be developed.
