CHESS OPENING PRINCIPLES by SIX FAMOUS GRANDMASTERS

Lasker's rules for the opening (from Common Sense In Chess) 1. Do not move any pawns in the opening of a game but the King and Queen pawns. (Either pawn helps to fight for the center and let a bishop out.) 2. Do not move any piece twice in the opening, but put it at once on the right square. 3. Bring out your knights before developing your bishops, especially the Queen's Bishop. 4. Do not pin the adverse King Knight (ie. by Bg5) before your opponent has castled.

Fredthebear says place your King's Knight on f3/f6 sooner rather than later. This is a vital defensive move that protects center pawns and prevents the opposing queen from attacking on the flank. Rapid development of the King's Knight to f3/f6 is one of the very best moves to be made. It's practically fool proof, as long as an opposing pawn thrust does not bite it (which leaves the overextended pawn vulnerable)!

In lieu of rapid knight development, a kingside fianchetto g3/g6 promptly followed by Bg2/Bg7 may suffice if one knows the strategy behind it. Either way, it's a good idea to rapidly develop the kingside minor pieces to prepare castling!

GM Reuben Fine on the opening:
1. In the initial position White, because of the extra move, has a slight advantage. Consequently: 2. White's problem in the opening is to secure the better position, while... 3. Black's problem is to secure equality.

Fine's rules for the opening
1. Open with either the e-pawn or the d-pawn.
2. Wherever possible, make a good developing move which threatens something or adds to the pressure on the center. 3. Develop knights before bishops (before queen and rooks). 4. Pick the most suitable square for a piece and develop it there once and for all. (Don't keep moving the same piece.) 5. Make one or two pawn moves in the opening, not more. (It requires two different pawn moves to let each bishop out. Tip #5 is a restricted way of saying "Don't move a bunch of pawns, especially the flank pawns." Think Pawn-Knight-Bishop.) 6. Do not bring your queen out too early (to chase after a pawn. She should come out to simultaneously check and fork an unprotected minor piece and/or hit the weak f2/f7 square a second time). 7. Castle as soon as possible, preferably on the king's side. (The king always moves two squares when castling in either direction. Castling connects the rooks. Rooks like to be protected by each other. In many ways, the opening is a race to connect the rooks together for protection.) 8. Play to get control of the center.
9. Always try to maintain at least one pawn in the center. 10. Do not sacrifice without a clear and adequate reason, eg.: * it secures a tangible advantage in development * it deflects the opponent's queen
* it prevents the opponent from castling
* it enables a strong attack to be developed
* (there is a strong follow-up that allows you to maintain the initiative and pour more pieces through the newly created breach)

Fine's two last questions to be asked before a move is made: * How does it affect the center?
* How does it fit in with the development of my other pieces and pawns? - How could this unit be attacked on it's new square, especially by a less valuable piece? If the unit cannot remain safely on the square, it's probably not such a good idea in the first place.

Nimzovitch's Seven Axioms (from My System)
* Development is to be understood as the strategic advance of the troops toward the frontier line (the line between the fourth and fifth ranks). * A pawn move must not in itself be regarded as a developing move, but merely as an aid to development. * To be ahead in development is the ideal to be aimed for. * Exchange with resulting gain of tempo. (The opponent is forced to recapture to maintain material equality, which makes it your turn again.) * Liquidation, with consequent development or disembarrassment. (On occasion, when under fire or lagging in development, you should "return the pawn" or scuttle a piece to save time and/or space and avoid incurring a worse disaster, such as a trapped queen or irreparable king safety. You give up a unit to help another, the lesser of two evils.) * The pawn center must be mobile.
* There is no time for pawn hunting in the opening, except for center pawns.

Suetin's four principles for advanced players
* The fight for control of the center
* The striving for the quickest and most active development. * The creation of conditions that permit early castling. * The formation of an advantageous pawn structure

GM Hort's 13 rules for all players
* Take advantage of every tempo.
* Develop flexibly!
* Do not make pawn moves without careful planning. * Begin the game with a center pawn, and develop the minor pieces so that they influence the center. * Develop harmoniously! Play with all your pieces. * Do not make aimless moves. Each move must be part of a definite plan. * Do not be eager for material gain. The fight for time is much more important than the fight for material, especially in open positions. * A weakening of your own pawns may be accepted only if it is compensated by a more active placement of your pieces. * With the help of your pawns, try to get an advantage in space and weaken your opponent's pawn position. * Do not obstruct your pawns by grouping your pieces directly in front of them; pawns and pieces must work together. * During the first few moves, pay special attention to the vulnerable KB2 square on both sides. (It's the pawn protected by the king, and only the king, leaving it vulnerable to being outnumbered by more attackers than defenders.) * Remember that the poor placement of even a single piece may destroy the coordination of the other pieces. (Give every piece a useful job...often a duty that affects pawn safety and control of the center.) * With White, exploit the advantage of having the first move and try to gain the initiative. With Black, try to organize counterplay.

GM Portisch on forming a repertoire:
"Your only task in the opening is to reach a playable middlegame." SOURCE: http://exeterchessclub.org.uk/conte...

GM Fine's 15 Basic Endgame Rules (from Basic Chess Endings) 1. Doubled, Isolated and (Backward) blockaded Pawns are weak: Avoid them! 2. Passed Pawns should be (pushed) advanced as rapidly as possible. (However, there is an exception in a Kings and Pawns ending. If the opposing king has committed to stopping your passed pawn in time "within the rule of the square", stop/leave the passed pawn still to keep the opposing king busy "within the rule of the square" while you go to work on the opposite wing. The opposing king is too slow to be on both wings at once. To summarize, once the monarch commits to prevent your passed pawn from promotion, you stop moving that pawn that he's after and immediately work on the opposite wing. Don't keep moving a passed pawn that the monarch will capture anyway.) 3. If you are one or two Pawns ahead, exchange pieces but not Pawns. (This means the opponent has fewer pieces left to stop your pawn advantage. Fewer/no pieces means fewer blockades and the pawns advantage is more likely to safely promote.) 4. If you are one or two Pawns behind, exchange Pawns but not pieces. (That means your remaining pieces are free to move about instead of sitting still to protect what's left of your pawns. Trade pawns to get rid of your pawns and you do not have to worry about protecting them.) 5. If you have an advantage, do not leave all the Pawns on one side. (That means keep pawns on both sides of the board to stretch the defense out. The weaker, disadvantaged army prefers all the action clustered on just one side.) 6. If you are one Pawn ahead, in 99 cases out of 100 the game is drawn if there are Pawns on only one side of the board. 7. The easiest endings to win are pure Pawn endings. (Produce a Passed Pawn on the side of your pawn majority. If his king races over to stop that passed pawn in time, you can maneuver on the opposite wing.) 8. The easiest endings to draw are those with Bishops of opposite colors. (One bishop controls the light squares, picking off pawns on the light squares. One bishop controls the dark squares, picking off pawns on the dark squares. The bishops cannot threaten each other, free to roam about on their own color. This leads to draws.) 9. The King is a strong piece: Use it! (Use the king in the endgame after a handful of trades have occured. In the opening, your king should hurry to safely castle away from the raging central battle. The king must get castled before the center pawns are traded off, or fatal exposure occurs. Then your castled king sits on guard duty during the middlegame to protect the pawn shield in front of him. Exchanges occur everywhere in the middlegame. Each exchange reduces the fire power on board, which reduces the likelihood of a checkmate on the castled king. Activate the king as soon as there is NO DANGER of it being checked repeatedly/checkmated. This lack of danger usually occurs after the opposing queen and one rook has been exchanged off the board, meaning the few remaining pieces cannot force checkmate and the focus turns to sniping pawns. Leaving your king back on the edge of the board is a big mistake in the endgame while the opposing king marches ahead toward pawns. Your king must beat his king to what remains of the advanced pawns! Your king must charge to attack in the endgame!) 10.
Do not place your Pawns on the color of your Bishop. (A bad bishop is stuck behind his own pawns.) 11.
Bishops are better than Knights in all except blocked Pawn positions. (Knights like a crowd, more pawns. Bishops are long range pieces that like space, open diagonals, fewer pawns.) 12.
Two Bishops vs. Bishop and Knight constitute a tangible advantage. (This advantage is known as "the Bishop Pair." Together, the Bishop Pair can sweep across the board diagonally; both colors of squares are covered. Against only one remaining bishop, take safety on the color of the absent bishop. For example, if the opponent has only one bishop remaining on a light square, strive to place your pieces on dark squares to avoid capture by the one light-squared bishop.) 13.
Passed Pawns should be blockaded by the King; the only piece which is not harmed by watching a Pawn is the Knight. (Passed pawns are dangerous -- a new queen waiting to happen. Passed pawns should be blockaded so they cannot advance farther toward promotion.) 14.
A rook on the seventh rank is sufficient compensation for a Pawn. (That means it's O.K. to abandon a pawn to activate your rook so your rook can gobble the opposing pawns along their pawn row. In general, your rook would rather eat opposing pawns than sit still passively guarding your one pawn...unless it is a PASSED pawn.) 15.
Rooks belong behind passed Pawns of either color. (See Tips #2 & #13 again.)
