The two greatest challenges for beginning chess players are not only to survive the openings phase, but also to choose appropriate attack and defense formations in the process. Winning Chess Openings shows you how to do both. In Yasser Seirawan's entertaining, easy-to-follow style, you're shown formations that can be used with other White or Black pieces. Winning Chess Openings explains how to: build a safe house for a king; estimate losses of ten moves or fewer; utilize the elements: time, force, space and pawn structure; plan strategy based on time-tested opening principles; employ a defense for Black against any White opening; apply an opening for White used by World Champions. Winning Chess Openings will help you develop a solid understanding of opening principles that you can apply to every game you play - without having to memorize a dizzying array of tedious and lengthy opening lines. Wholesale Chess recommends this book as the best book for those who want to learn chess openings. (WARNING - Do not make this your first chess book, or your second or your third. Please, for your own sake, read Play Winning Chess, Winning Chess Tactics, and Winning Chess Strategies first! Studying openings is only helpful if you know how to play the rest of the game well!)
