Master Chess Openings in 6 Minutes: GM Tips, Tricks, Principles, Strategies, Tactics, Ideas & Moves


Hi Friends, Welcome to Chess Talk! I’m Jeetendra Advani. “Well begun is half done.” This golden saying also applies to the game
of chess. A good opening in a chess game is very very
important. So What exactly is an opening? See basically, there are 3 phases in a game
of chess: the opening, the middle game & the end game. Opening is the stage where you bring out your
pieces & set them up in attacking positions. The opening is generally completed when both
your rooks connect to each other. A big mistake that amateur players make is
that they try to memorise the opening moves. That is not the right way to go about it. Rather than memorising, what we need to focus
on is the basic idea & principles behind a good solid opening. So what is the basic idea in an opening? Its very simple. You need to bring all your pieces into play
before launching an attack & prevent your opponent from doing the same. In order to devise a good opening strategy,
you need to keep in mind some very important principles & guidelines. In this video, I will tell you exactly what
all moves you need to focus on in order to develop a good solid foundation to launch
into your opponent. These are the absolute essential tips you
need to know before starting off your chess journey. So what are we waiting for, lets get started. Principle#1: Develop ur pieces. This is the most important rule & foundation
of your opening strategy. Like I mentioned earlier, the idea is to use
your entire army. Therefore, piece development is very important. You need to open up your game & move your
pieces to active squares from where they can control the maximum number of squares. Its advisable to develop your minor pieces
first i.e. your knights & bishops because its generally easier to figure out the active
squares for these pieces quite early on in the game. Principle#2: Occupy the centre. So why is the centre so important? Its simply because a piece in the center controls
more squares than it could cover by sitting in the corner. Lets take the knight for example. This knight in the center is controlling 8
squares & has 8 possible moves whereas, this knight sitting in the corner is controlling
only 2 squares & it has only 2 possible moves. This same principle can be applied to other
pieces also. The opening, is therefore, always going to
be a fight for the center. Principle#3: This is an extension of principle
#2. You need to exert pressure on the center. You must keep in mind that just like you,
your opponent is also looking to occupy the center so you need to threaten his pieces
so that he is forced to move away from the center. Lets take these opening moves for example. This is a very common opening by white & black. Here what white is trying to do is threaten
the black knight on c6 which is giving support to the black pawn on e5. So indirectly, white is exerting pressure
on the black pawn sitting on the central square e5. This is how you exert pressure on the center. Principle#4: Never move a piece twice in the
beginning because by doing this, u will only lose time. Your goal is to position you pieces in the
first move itself on squares from where they are free to move up. The white knights for example, generally occupy
the c3 & f3 squares. The white bishops are generally positioned
between the 2nd & 4th lines depending on your setup & opening variation. So thats how you can setup your pieces. Principle#5: Don’t bring out the queen early. There is always a temptation amongst amateur
players to bring out their queen early. They try to play the glory moves & try to
checkmate their opponent in some of the well known ways like these. While this trick might work against inexperienced
and new players. But against seasoned players, this strategy
will definitely backfire. Queen is a very important piece hence, it
can be threatened easily by pawns & other minor pieces. A good player will make your queen run all
round the park just like this. He will gradually keep on developing his pieces
by challenging your queen & thus gain a very strong positional advantage. It is therefore advisable to bring out your
queen only after developing your knights & bishops. Principle#6: Castling. Castling is generally the last stage in an
opening. The King is precious & it is vulnerable in
the center. Therefore, it needs to be shielded. Also, the rooks need to be brought onto open
files which are generally in the center. Castling, therefore, has a double advantage. Your king is tucked aside into safety behind
the pawns & your rooks are connected & are now ready to attack. Keep in mind that if your king or rook move,
you can’t castle. So therefore, you need to try & castle asap. So these are the general guidelines that you
must keep in mind before making your opening moves. Keep in mind that apart from following these
tactics yourself, you also need to prevent ur opponent from using these ideas. Ultimately, you will always need to think
on your feet & modify your plans based on the moves made by your opponent. You can obviously deviate a little bit if
the situation demands but more or less this should be your opening strategy while facing
highly rated players. It is important that you try out different
opening variations keeping in mind these principles & see what works best for you. I’m sure these opening principles will take
your game to the next level. So thats it guys, If you have any questions
or ideas or any thoughts to share, feel free to post them in the comments section below. I read all the comments & reply where ever

  1. But Sir if we can gambit in either 2nd or 3rd move so what we have to do gambit or occupy the center and follow principles

  2. I'm a university chess team coach and these principles are rock solid. I would add that you must take advantage of a weaker player if they fail to apply these rules in the opening. I've seen many try to attack the wings with pawn to a4 and rook to a3, for example. That doesn't work. Three more things: 1) Force the other king to move, preventing castling. I tell my players that if you don't castle you will lose. A good sacrifice to get the king moving will speed you to victory 2) Trade queens. Weaker players love their queen and can suffer mental defeat if she is gone. I learned this around age five playing my father in chess. He was completely demoralized if he lost his queen. 3) Love your pawns. They aren't just those "pieces in the way". When you get to the endgame and you have six pawns to the other guy's two pawns you have an easy win.

  17. Hello. Just subscribed and love your channel. You mentioned that you read all of the comments. I hope you read this one and have the time to respond. I have been playing chess for a long time, but my game has not improved in years. I have three questions: 1. Is it possible to improve one's game so that a rating can be raised significantly? (a few hundred points. My rating hovers around 1200) 2. If it is possible, how long would it take? 3. How would one go about doing this? (I play this game every night, and have played over 30,000 games with no change to my rating.) Thank you for your time.
