2 Turns Left. Help yourself says Fredthebear.

--*--

samham and fredthebear had similar thoughts that spawned this collection! Site is under construction, but you might find something of use.

There are a few main lines here, but most of it is out-of-fashion, which is just fine at the amateur level as long as you know what you're doing more so than your opponent. Just don't fly in the face of sound chess principles of active piece development, central control, and king safety.

After all, the vast majority of successful chess moves come as a surprise to the unsuspecting commander, for had s/he anticipated such, s/he would have taken preventative steps. Victory is the result of the winner seeing what the loser did not see.

The point being, less common opening lines can catch your opponent by surprise, unprepared, or less prepared than you. Surprise is to your advantage as long as you know how to accurately continue forth after springing the surprise! (Don't play something unorthodox and then start guessing yourself of what to do next.) Since amateurs see all kinds of unorthodox moves, don't expect "shock value" to startle and cause your opponent to panic. A master might surprise a another master, but a carefree amateur opponent merely plays on. They might even gain confidence from your less common opening line, thinking you messed up the theory.
