Setting Up Your Chessboard Setting up your chessboard is the first step in playing a game of chess.

Place the knights next to the rooks. Put the bishops on the board next to the knights. After the bishops come the queens. The queens always start on the square of the same shade — the white queen starts on a light square, and the black queen starts on a dark square. Place the kings next to the queens, which is only fitting. Add the pawns straight across the rank in front of the other pieces. Naming Ranks and Files in Chess The chessboard is divided into ranks numbers and files letters. There are eight of each, and each is comprised of eight squares of equal size: Ranks are rows that go from side to side across the chessboard and are referred to by numbers.

Each chessboard has eight ranks, which are numbered from the bottom of the board where the white pieces start on up. Files are columns that go up and down the chessboard, and each board has eight of them.

Because numbers indicate ranks, letters indicate files, which are labeled from left to right. Indeed he can push them right away, but that wouldnt be wise.

Instead, he prepares the push first, by playing moves like f4, Kh1, Rd1 and Re1. After the preparatory moves everything will be ready for a strong attack in the center, which will most likely win the game. Even though it sounds like common sense it is not the case for many amateur players.

Some players use this phase of the game for quick queen checks, pawn hunt and launch of unprepared attack. Imaging being way behind in development, with an exposed king stuck at the center, under attack of opponents rooks and the queen.

Not a very pleasant position to be in. Focus on rapid development and you wont be one of these unlucky players that lose in 15 moves. In the position below Black is 2 pawns up but he is so much behind in development that the game is already lost. Typically you want to move each piece just once during the opening phase. Unless there is a very good reason serious material gain, checkmate, etc. Give a chance to other pieces to get developed before you start repositioning already developed pieces.

It seems like white found a nice attacking move Nb5, threatening a vulnerable c7 square. But this move was an inaccuracy because it violates one of the basic opening principles of not moving the same piece twice. Black can easily defend with Qf7, simultaneously opening the diagonal for the light squared bishop. White just lost a tempo.

It wouldve been better for white just to play O-O. Generally speaking, you should only make pawn moves when they are needed to develop the pieces central pawns, fianchetto, etc.

Excerpts (A - Z)

Especially avoid prophylactic pawn pushes; they dont do any good in the opening. White just played an unforced pawn move h3. This is not very good move because it loses time. First of all, the knight is a short range piece, meaning that it only can control the nearby squares. If a knight is not developed its effectiveness is close to zero.

At the same time, a bishop is a long range piece and can control many squares even from the back rank.

Also, by developing the bishop before the knight you are leaving a knights pawn unprotected. If you exchanged a wellpositioned piece for an undeveloped counterpart you are losing tempos, and thats something you definitely want to avoid in the opening.

Use these tempos to develop more pieces instead! In the position below it is not a good idea for white to play Bxb8 because it will lose a tempo.

Keep in mind that contrary to a popular belief it is much harder to attack the castled king. At the same time, castling connects the rooks, allowing them to work more efficiently. Always castle early in the game!

Following this simple rules will save you handful of games. Generally speaking a player that possesses a spatial advantage has control of the game. Space allows you to much more efficiently coordinate the pieces for both attack and defense, at the same time preventing your opponent from doing the same.

In our training course we have excellent examples and a much deeper explanation of how spatial advantage can be effectively used and converted into the win. Notice how white advanced his pawns to occupy more space.

If your move possesses a threat, your opponent will have a much harder time realizing his own plans since he would have to utilize his resources to deal with the threats first. Always try to find a move that threatens your opponents safety. It seems white is losing material because his queen, 2 pawns and the knight are in danger.

If white plays passively he will lose a pawn and his advantage. White however, finds a strong counter-attacking move: Now black will be the one losing a piece. Often, they need to be created before you can fully exploit them. If your opponent already has a weakness you need to regroup your forces and attack it. In the example below the material is equal. However, black has a very weak, backward c7-pawn.

White regroups his forces and puts maximum pressure on the pawn. The important idea that many amateur players dont understand is that even though white cannot win the c7-pawn right away, he gets an enormous advantage in pieces activity. Compare how white pieces are positioned compared to their blacks counterparts. The position is technically won for white.

Not preparing the attack is a huge mistake that can turn out to be very costly. By concentrating pieces in the region of the board where you plan to attack, you will have all available resources, increasing the possibility of success.

In the position below white is attacking on the kings side.

He plays 1. Qh2, bringing the queen on the h-file and threatening black kings safety. Next, white will play something like 2. Ne5 instead of taking the pawn, focusing on kings side in general and not thinking about the small material gain. Not rushing is a very important concept in many chess positions. It is much better to prepare an attack and to mate an opponent, than simply to win a pawn.

If you have an attack in progress, it makes sense to open the position even further to allow your bishops and rooks to take use of that open space.

In the position below black was greedy in the opening and grabbed some pawns in expense of development. Now his queen is misplaced and the king is under attack. White just played 1. The idea is to open the e-file and to include the rooks and queen in the attack. Black is already is trouble. Keep in mind that the key defender is not always the strongest piece.

Lets take a look at the position below. White prepared an attack on the kings side, by opening h-file and doubling the rooks. However, white cannot advance onto h8 because the blacks dark squared bishop defends that important square. The g7-bishop is the key defender in this position. Whites plan is to exchange it off. Therefore, the move is obvious 1. Let me clarify what it means.

Even though you should exchange off the key defenders in the opponents position, you should avoid unnecessary exchanges since it will only benefit your opponent. Fewer pieces mean fewer attacking possibilities and fewer things to worry about. Thats not what we should go after. In the position below white has significant advantage. He is a pawn up and the black kings side is weak. White needs to avoid trading queens and followed by lifting the rook to g3.

When your opponent was able to defend on one side of the board, you should relocate your pieces on the other side and continue the attack. In the example below black defends queens side with both rooks and the king pretty well. Therefore, white changes direction of the attack and relocates his pieces on h-file winning material. This is especially important rule to remember when dealing with the knights. Feb 24, 2. Feb 26, 3. Possibly of interest: Log In or Join. Hot Topics. SuDDenLife 5 min ago.

The best piece for this purpose is indeed the knight. Unlike other pieces they are not blocked if there are pieces between them and their destination square.
