Best Ways to Open in chess

1

Play as white

When you are playing white pieces, you have a small advantage at the beginning of the game. You can control the opening. Practice a few openings with e5 and try out different variations in it. Once you remember the basic line of the game, you can play with an opponent. This way you will take less time to think of your next move and save time.

Kings Indian Defense

The king’s Indian Defense is the best way to defend the King when playing with an advanced player. For black, the pawn is moved to g6, the bishop to g7. The knight goes to h6 or f6 and then do castling. This move helps secure the King. But the King’s Indian defense can become vulnerable if the white knows how to attack it.

For white, move the pawn to g3 and bishop to g2, knight to f3 or h3, and then go for castling. The King’s Indian Defense is not very easy to attack if the player knows how to tackle attacks.

Kings Gambit

The King Gambit is played from the white side when the two paws in front of the King are moved to e4, e5, and f4. It often results in the killing of a black and white pawn or just a black pawn. The white has two major plans when playing King’s gambit, to dominate the center and capture black’s knight or bishops. But, it works only when the black accepts the gambit.

Don't move your queen early in the game

Develop knights and bishops, and castle quickly. Don’t move your queen at the beginning of the game otherwise, you will not have enough time to develop other pieces. Your opponent will continue attacking your queen from every side while also developing their pieces. So, develop other pieces first and then bring your queen in the game.

Gain more space in the center

If you are a beginner, the best way to open in chess is to move the pawns at the center of the board. The most common moves are e4 and e5. The idea is to cover more space in the center. Once you move your pawns, you can develop your knights and bishops to gain more space in the center.

Develop your pieces

Develop your major pieces like knights and bishops at the beginning of the game. This way you can castle early and put your king on the safe spot. Avoid moving your pawns where your king is located. This will save your king from any discoveries and checks.

Queens Gambit

One of the oldest and best openings for beginners is the queen’s gambit. It starts with the sacrifice of a pawn to gain the chessboard’s center. The white side moves the pawn standing in front of the queen to d4, the opponent would block the move by moving their pawn to e4 or place it in e3 to kill the pawn. The next white side’s move is the pawn in front of the king to d5.

The queen’s gambit can result in many opportunities for the white to capture major pieces of black but only if the opponent does not know how to counter-attack. If you are playing with a beginner or an intermediate chess player, queen’s gambit is a good way to open.
