Place the Queen behind the line of friendly pawns during opening

Place the Queen behind the line of friendly pawns during opening

Since the Queen is a very powerful piece, it is also very vulnerable to the opponent’s constant attacks.

Therefore, it’s convenient to place it behind a pawn, preferably on the second rank so that the first one is free for Rook development.

Avoid trading a developed piece for a not developed one

Avoid trading a developed piece for a not developed one

Generally it’s a bad deal to trade a well-positioned piece for a bad-positioned one.

When you trade one of your developed pieces for one of your opponent’s not developed ones, you waste time. The same is true if you trade a piece that has moved a lot for one that your opponent moved only once.

Castle as quickly as possible

Castle as quickly as possible

The King’s safety is one of the most important things to care about during opening and middlegame.

The King in the center will always be very vulnerable to the opponent’s attacks, especially in open positions.

Castling means placing your King comfortably behind a pawn blockade and allowing development of one of your Rooks. Then, the Rook may rapidly occupy an open or half-open file.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
