Contents
This booklet shows the first 20 moves of 30 king-pawn openings. Diagrams
are shown for every move. These diagrams are from Whites perspective
after moves by White and from Blacks perspective after moves by Black.

The openings are grouped into 6 sets. These sets are listed beginning at
the bottom of this page. Right after these lists are some ideas for ways you
might use these openings in your training.

A note to chess coaches:


Although the openings in this book give approximately even chances to White and Black,
it wont always look that way to inexperienced players. This can present problems for
players who are continuing a game after using the opening moves listed in this booklet.
Some players will need assistance to see how certain temporarily disadvantaged positions
can be equalized.
A good example of where some hints from the coach might come in handy is the sample
Kings Gambit Declined (Set F, Game 2). At the end of the listed moves, White is down
by a queen and has no immediate opportunity for a recapture. If White doesnt analyze
the board closely and misses the essential move Bb5+, he will have a lost position.

Using This Booklet
Watching how an experienced player performs his art -- whether on a
basketball court, with a musical instrument, or on a chess board -- is a great
way to learn many techniques which cant be explained well in words, and
can provide great incentive to improve our own skills. Having good models
makes our own practice time better focused, more inspired.

This booklet presents models of solid opening chess moves. You wont find
spectacular, brilliant moves here. Nor will you find awful, blundering moves.
Just well-tested openings that have been tried over hundreds of years --
each opening has led to eventual wins by White in some games, to wins by
Black in other games.

Try these openings in games and special tournaments. The openings are
grouped into 6 sets, with 5 openings in each set. Its fun to have special
tournaments where each round starts with a pre-determined opening. You
can choose openings from a certain set, or from variations of the same
general opening.

Consider having a practice tournament where the opening moves for each
game are pre-selected. For example, have a tournament where all players
make their first 10 moves each round based on a different variation of the
Sicilian Defense. For the last round, players could create their own variation
of the Sicilian. (Theyd be free to play as they wished after 1. e4 c5.)

Some very different strategies are demonstrated in the 30 openings


sampled here. At first glance, some of the openings may look like they
violate principles youve already learned about how to begin a game of
chess! But these are all legitimate openings, successfully used at sometime
or other by top players. Do you enjoy the ones which have bold, aggressive
moves or those with safer, more defensive moves? Find an opening style
which you especially like, or which your opponents especially hate!

Read through each opening like its a mystery story. See if you can figure
out why a player made the move he did. What are the dangers on the
board? Where are the obvious threats, and where are the hidden ones!
What do you think might happen next? Just like in a mystery, just like in
daily life, there are always surprises around the bend. What looks like a
safe situation might really be the edge of disaster! And what looks like
imminent doom might be the verge of great opportunity. Watch for these
twists -- and when you play your own games, always keep in mind that
your fortunes can change at any moment. One of the great joys in chess in
finding a way to turn a potentially very bad situation into a surprisingly good
one!

About the Names ...


The Spanish Game -- In 1561, a Spanish priest wrote a book
about chess in which he presented a detailed study of the
opening
1. e4 e5, 2. Nf3 Nc6, 3. Bb5.
As a result, this opening is often called The Spanish Game.

The Scotch Game -- In 1824, a chess team from London began


a correspondence match with a team in Edinburgh. The
Londoners played an opening which began
1. e4 e5, 2. Nf3 Nc6, 3. d4.
Later in the match, the Edinburgh team successfully adopted
this opening themselves. The Scots won the match, and
history has awarded their countrys name to the opening
which they helped to refine.

The French Defense -- In 1834, Londoners were in the middle of


another correspondence chess battle. This time, their
opponents were a team from Paris. The French team replied
to 1. e4 with e6 and, as you might guess, won the match.

About the Names ...


The Spanish Game -- The name of that Spanish priest who
wrote a study about
1. e4 e5, 2. Nf3 Nc6, 3. Bb5
was Ruy Lopez. Players who feel confident about how to
pronounce his first name will sometimes call this opening The
Ruy Lopez. The rest of us will just call it The Spanish Opening.

The Italian Game -- Speaking of tricky, glorious-sounding


names and their easy, less-glamorous alternatives, heres
another doozey of an example. The opening
1. e4 e5, 2. Nf3 Nc6, 3. Bc4 Bc5
is known as either The Giuoco Piano or as The Italian
Opening . For those of us still trying to learn how to say Toy
Boat 5 times, fast, this is an easy choice.

The Sicilian Defense -- This opening was developed 400-500


years ago in Italy. (Rumor has it that this was by school kids
who had not yet discovered video games.)

About the Names ...


The Vienna Game -- The capital of Austria, nestled along the
south bank of the Danube River, is known as the home of
Beethoven and his symphonies, Mozart and his minuets,
Brahms and his lullabies, and for quite a few strong chess
players, including Rudolph Spielman who liked to begin his
games as White with 1. e4 e5, 2. Nc3.
Winawer -- Speaking of Vienna, the champ of the Vienna chess
tournament in 1882 was a native of Warsaw, Szymon
Abramowicz Winawer. Hes most remember in the chess
world for a variation he developed of the French Defense:
1. e4 e6, 2. d4 d5, 3. Nc3 Bb4
Caro-Kann -- And still speaking of Vienna, thats where Marcus
Kann was from. Along with Horatio Caro, he developed
studies of the opening 1. e4 c6.
Poisoned Pawn -- Sometimes players will leave a pawn
undefended during opening play, tempting opponents to take
it. If the pawn is captured, a surprise attack may follow!

About the Names ...


Marshall Attack -- From 1909 until 1936, the U.S. Chess
Champion was an exceptionally creative and daring player,
Frank Marshall. Marshall had such a reputation for making
outrageous sacrifices followed by all-out attacks that he was
respectfully known by opponents as The Great Swindler.

Dragon -- In chess talk, dragon refers to a pawn formation


which (with a fair amount of imagination!) resembles the
shape of a nasty serpent-like creature. Such a formation can
develop with the black pawns in forms of the Sicilian Defense.

Petrovs Defense -- The opening is simple enough: 1. e4 e5,


2. Nf3 Nf6. The name is not quite so simple: Petrovs
Defense; Petroffs Defense, and The Russian Defense are all
acceptable titles. Each of these names refers to a Russian
master from the 1800s. The opening is known for a trap
which Black can easily fall into on his third move. (In short, if
White plays 3. Nxe5, Black shouldnt immediately play Nxe4.)

About the Names ...


The Evans Gambit -- A British military commander, Captain W. D.
Evans, made a name for himself in the world of chess by finding
a very powerful variation of the Italian Game. In the 1830s, he
used his new found weapon to topple players who were
considered to be much better than him. The main idea behind
this opening is to give up a pawn early in the game to make
room for a crushing attack by Whites bishops.
The Pirc Defense -- This opening is also named after one of its early
users. Its one of the more modern chess openings and was
developed this century by Vasja Pirc and his colleagues in
Yugoslavia. (Pir rhymes with fear not fir, and the c is pronounced
as ts not k .) The Pirc Defense usually includes these moves by
Black early in the game: d6, Nf6, g6, Bg7.
Hypermodern -- When you study the Pirc Defense, youll quickly
see that Black doesnt try to immediately occupy the center, but
instead attacks it at the edges. This is a hypermodern style
defense: Black at first gives White the center, then launches a
forceful, aggressive counterattack. This style became
fashionable in the 1920s and 1930s and is still popular.

About the Names ...


Gambit -- All of the openings in this last set involve at least one
gambit. Gambits are a special type of strategic move used
early in a game. They offer the opponent some material
(usually a pawn) in order to:
a) lure chessmen away from the center;
b) clear a path which will be used for making an attack; or
c) gain an edge in bringing out pieces.
Gambits can add a lot of excitement to a game because they
mean immediate risks and opportunities for both sides.

The Danish and Latvian Gambits -- These are named in honor


of the players from Denmark and from Latvia who shared
their studies of these especially bold openings.

In all the sample openings in this booklet, solid offense is met with solid
defense. So neither side gains a big enough advantage to guarantee victory.
This gives you an idea how to play against a strong opponent. Good luck to
any of your opponents who cant make such strong moves!
