Are you just beginning to play chess and want to know why do you keep loosing these games to a player who is not even good? I will give you couple of vital suggestions and tips that will dramatically improve your chess playing strength.
Let’s go over the most important concepts. The first stage of the complex game of chess called the opening. In the opening it is very important to develop chess pieces. That’s what the opening is made for, to mobilize your chess army. Bishops should be placed on open diagonals, knights in the center and rooks on the open files. If you place chess pieces in this special order you make the task of your opponent to checkmate you a lot harder than if your pieces are poorly developed. There are also more opportunities to launch an attack and crush your opponent if pieces are placed effectively. It is also a very good idea to castle as early as possible since the pawns and rook are excellent guards for your king. It is a lot harder to checkmate castled king, remember that. The second stage of chess is called middle game.
