Term: Open File

An open file in chess is a file with no pawns of either color on it.[1] In the diagram, the e-file is an open file. An open file can provide a line of attack for a rook or queen. Having rooks or queens on open files or half-open files is considered advantageous, as it allows a player to attack more easily, since a rook or queen can move down the file to penetrate the opponent's position.

Basic Principle:

  • Control Centre. If you control more than half of the square on the board you have an advantage. Also centralize your pieces to make them powerful.
  • Develop all your pieces.
  • Develop Knights before your Bishops.
  • Castle early.
  • Do not move pawns in front of your castled king.
  • Don’t bring the queen out too early.
  • Don’t move the same piece twice in the opening.

There's so much to learn about chess I'm not going to go through the whole game, but here are a few basic tips: 

i. Fork: The most basic capture move, put a piece in a position to attack two of your opponent's pieces. He will have to move one, then you take the other. 

ii. Pin: Using a rook, bishop, or queen, put yourself in a position where you are threatening a piece with a more valuable piece behind it. The piece will be "pinned" in place because if it moves, you will take the valuable piece. 

iii. Skewer: Similar to pin except that you threaten a valuable piece with a weaker piece behind it. The valuable piece (e.g. King or Queen) will have to move and you can capture the piece behind it. 

iv. Opening: Opening is the most crucial point of the game. The best strategy is to move your two center pawns forward two spaces, and then move the knights towards the center as backup. Some players even move the bishops out into the center, but it can be difficult to complete the entire strategy without your opponent attacking and forcing you to defend yourself. 

And you say you've heard taking the middle is good, this is true. Take the middle as stated above with knights, bishops, and pawns. Never attempt to hold the middle with rooks and queens because they will either be taken or forced to remain in one place to protect other pieces. The queen should be able to move independently around the entire board, and the rooks are mostly backup pieces. 

Castle with your King whenever possible.

First of all, whatever opening you are planning to play, first and foremost thing in Chess is to control the central 4 squares. Both white and black fight for those central squares. Then, try to develop the pieces esp. knights and bishops rather than attacking early followed by castling the king to safety. Opening always act as a foundation for middle game and end game. If you do any blunders in opening, there are more chances of losing the game easily , unlike blundering in middle game and end game. There are lot of openings like Kings pawn, Queens pawn, English etc. Openings play a vital role in the result of win and loss of a player. So, it goes rightly, like this " Open,execute,succeed "

Beginners who are playing their first few games often look down at the board and wonder, what the heck am I supposed to do with all these pieces? If you ever find yourself in this position, then this article is for you.

1. The Relative Power of the Pieces:

Each piece has a different level of power on the chess board. Certain pieces are generally better than others. The pieces given values to show their worth:

  • Pawn = 1 Point.

  • Knight = 3 Points.

  • Bishop = 3 Points.

  • Rook = 5 Points.

  • Queen = 9 Points.

Note: the King is not given a value, because he can't be captured, only checkmated.

The piece values can be a guide in determining which side has the advantage. If one player has more points than the other player, he has an advantage in material (with all else being equal, he is probably winning).

The values can also be used to evaluate trades. For example:

  • The Rook is better than the Bishop or Knight.

  • 2 Bishops or Knights are worth more than 1 Rook.

  • A Bishop or Knight is worth 3 Pawns.

2. What Moves to Make at the Start of the Game:

During the initial moves (known as the opening), you have three goals:

  • Develop pieces.

  • Control the centre.

  • Protect the King.

Let's take a look at each of these concepts by examining some opening moves. To keep things simple and focus on the concepts, we'll ignore black's pieces for now. In a real game, you would have to carefully consider what your opponent does before each move.

3. A great opening move:

As white, one of the best opening moves is to advance the Pawn in front of your King forward 2 squares (e4 in chess notation). This move is excellent because:

  1. It opens lines to allow the Kingside Bishop and Queen to move off their starting squares (this is development).

  2. It helps control the centre by occupying it with a pawn.

4. The Kingside Knight usually comes out early:

A great second move is to bring out your Kingside Knight (Nf3 in chess notation). This is a developing move, because the Knight comes off its original square into the action. The Knight also helps to control the centre, because it attacks two key centre squares.

5. The Kingside Bishop often comes out next:

A great third move is to bring out your Kingside Bishop (Bc4 in chess notation). This is a developing move, because the Bishop comes off its original square. The Bishop also helps to control the centre from its new position.

6. Castling early is usually a good idea:

A great fourth move is to castle (O-O in chess notation). This move fulfills the goal of protecting the King in the opening. It also has the benefit of developing the Rook, by bringing it out of the corner.

Getting Started With Chess

Chess is a game of strategy and tactics. Each player commands an army of 16 chessmen pawns and other pieces (the king, queen, bishops, knights, and rooks). A well-played chess game has three stages.

Chess is a game of strategy and tactics. Each player commands an army of 16 chessmen pawns and other pieces (the king, queen, bishops, knights, and rooks).

A well-played chess game has three stages. In the opening, the players bring out their forces in preparation for combat. The middlegame begins as the players maneuver for position and carry out attacks and counterattacks. The final stage is the endgame when, with fewer pawns and pieces left on the board, it is safer for the kings to come out and join the final battle.

As play proceeds, each player will capture some of the opponent's men; often, the capturing pieces are immediately recaptured. As long as the piece a player gives up is generally equal to the piece he gets in return, we say the players are exchanging. If you unintentionally place a piece where it can be captured without getting a piece of equal value in return, we say that you put that piece en prise. (This is a French term that literally means "in take.") Sometimes a player may place a piece en prise in order to trick an opponent. If the opponent captures the offered man, it may leave him open to attack.

You're Ready to Go!

It's time for you to take a look at these ten tips to help you learn some simple ways to win more games:

  1. Look at your opponent's move.
  2. Make the best possible move.
  3. Have a plan.
  4. Know what the pieces are worth.
  5. Develop quickly and well.
  6. Control the center.
  7. Keep your king safe.
  8. Know when to trade pieces.
  9. Think about the endgame.
  10. Always be alert.

Don't rush!

Bad Pawn Moves

Shibin K Benny

Regular tournament player for last 7 years. International FIDE rating-1552. Achievement- Became Champion...

Never move silly pawns anywhere in the beginning of the game, especially not on the outer files like Black has done below. You just lose time and run behind in piece development.

This means that your opponent can and will attack you with his pieces, once he has castled. Pieces are: knights, bishops, rooks and the queen, not pawns! He can attack you as he has more pieces developed than you have. He will simply overrun you in the center because he has more knights, bishops, rooks and the queen actively placed and you got no pieces placed actively to defend yourself. Why? Because you have wasted your time to push some silly pawns here and there and may have not even castled.

It is very important that you understand this principle!

Read this text above a hundred times to get this into your head or you will never ever become a good player. So don't touch useless pawns in the beginning of the game.

You should first move one or two center pawns, then develop your knights and bishops towards the center. Best is to get the kingside knight and bishop out, then castle quickly. See the white position. White is going to get out his kingside bishop next and castle afterwards.

There is a tendency for people to relax once they have reached a good position or to give up hope if their position is very bad. These attitudes are natural, but both lead to bad results.

Many players, even world championshave achieved winning positions, only to lose because they relaxed too soon. Even the best position won't win by itself; you have to give it some help! In almost any position, the "losing" player will still be able to make threats. The "winning" player has to be alert enough to prevent these positions.

Advice: If you have a better position, watch out! One careless move could throw away your hard-won advantage. Even as you're carrying out your winning plans, you must watch out for your opponent's threats.

Conversely, if you have a worse position, don't give up! Keep making strong moves, and try to complicate the position as much as possible. If your opponent slips, you may get the chance to make a comeback. Remember: Where there's life, there's hope.

So be alert all the time, no matter what the position is like. A little bit of extra care can pay off in a big way.
