Follow these golden rules to start a chess game
Modified from Deepak Batra's list.

00) Set the board so a light square is on the near right corner, and the queen is on her color facing the opposing queen (White queen on a light square, Black queen on a dark square).

00) Shake hands w/your opponent. The player with the Black army starts White's clock. If Black is not present on time according to the tournament director, White starts his own clock. Regardless, White always makes the first move after the clock has been started.

00) Open with a centre pawn. This allows a bishop and queen to exit later.

00) The worst opening move is f3 for White and f6 for Black. The King's Knight belongs on this square, the sooner the better.

00) Knights should be developed inward, toward the center. A Knight in the center attacks/protects a maximum total of eight squares all around itself. "A Knight on the rim is dim; it's chances are slim." Try not to place a knight on the edge of the board unless it has a vital duty there.

00) KNIGHTS before BISHOPS, before Queen and Rooks. The minor pieces best leave the back row before the major pieces. Minor piece development enables early castling.

00) Develop rapidly and completely. DON'T move the same piece again and again in the opening. Try to develop a different, unmoved piece toward the center. The opening is a race to activate, coordinate, maximize your army to overwhelm, outnumber the opponent still partially nestled on it's original squares.

00) Develop with threats to check, capture, pin, or fork on the next turn. Always think about striking the opponent, and how the enemy army will strike into your camp. Aggressive pressure ties down careful defense of the target; the guard on duty dare not leave.

00) DON'T bring out your QUEEN too early, exposing her to enemy fire and then losing time as she retreats. However, it's wise for the queen to leap forth to give check and fork an unprotected piece.

00) Make as FEW PAWN MOVES as possible in the opening. It's more important to activate your back row pieces toward the center. (You must move at least two pawns to allow both bishops and queen to exit.) However, it might be prudent to advance pawns to hit an opposing piece, such as the Noah's Ark Trap.

00) Always play to gain control of the centre (the four inner most squares, and the twelves squares surrounding the four). The center is essentially the military high ground with increased mobility and choices; fire rapidly in any direction when occupying a central position.

00) Try to maintain at least ONE PAWN in the centre. Protect it.

00) Don't move your f-pawn until the opposing queen has been removed from the board (or you castled queenside). Protect it. Of course, there are specific exceptions for those who are theoretically trained to play the King's Gambit, Vienna Gambit, Yugoslav Attack against the Sicilian Dragon, Dutch or Schliemann Defense, etc. Those who are not trained for these certain openings should leave their f-pawn on it's original square.

00) Don't fall for Fool's Mate, Scholar's Mate, Smothered Mate, or Legall's Mate. These common checkmate patterns attack the UNCASTLED KING.

00) Avoid attacking prematurely -- an attack that is easily parried becomes a waste of time. Most successful checkmates involve at least three different units honing in.

00) CASTLE early, preferably on the KING SIDE. Castling safeguards the King away from the raging battle in the center and activates the Rook toward the center. Connect the two Rooks for mutual protection.

00) Note that Castling on Opposite Wings (0-0 vs. 0-0-0 or vise versa) often triggers a pawn storm on opposite wings in the MIDDLEGAME. Another frequent option is a counterattack in the centre against a wing attack. Castling signals the upcoming transition from the Opening phase (perhaps a dozen moves or so) to the Middlegame.

00) If the course of events allows, prevent the opponent from castling. For example, White might prevent Black from castling by giving check with a Re1+ on the open e-file. Or, Ba3 making it illegal for the Black King to castle through check since the Bishop cuts off the f8 square, or sacrificing Nxf7 encouraging KxNf7.

00) It's fine for either army to fianchetto the King's Bishop on the kingside flank but this requires time for two moves in a row; g3 and Bg2 for White, or g6 and Bg7 for Black. The bishop fires along the long diagonal, corner to corner. Examples of this are Hungarian Opening/Barcza System for White and Modern Defense/Robatsch for Black. Most other flank pawn openings are considered to be Unorthodox, not recommended.

00) It's fine for either army to fianchetto the Queen's Bishop on the queenside flank but this requires time for two moves in a row; b3 and Bb2 for White, or b6 and Bb7 for Black. The bishop fires along the long diagonal, corner to corner. Examples of this are Larsen's Attack for White and Owen's Defense for Black. Most other flank pawn openings are considered to be Unorthodox, not recommended.

00) Avoid exchanging your fianchettoed bishop! It's absence leaves undefended holes in your pawn shield. If forced to trade, exchange it for the opposing bishop of the same color. The fianchettoed bishop becomes more powerful as the pawns are cleared off.

00) DON'T SACRIFICE without a clear and adequate reason. This applies to all phases of chess - the Opening, Middlegame, and Endgame, as well as the game of Life.

The Golden Rules of Endgame
Modified list by Mohit Jaiswal

As more and more units are exchanged and the board gradually empties, checkmate becomes less and less likely and the kings become more safe. This is how the endgame evolves. The focus turns to creating and promoting a passed pawn to the far end for a new piece gaining a fresh material advantage. The promoted pawn usually becomes a new queen, but sometimes into a rook on the bishop's files (c- and f-files) to avoid stalemate, or into a knight that immediately gives check and/or fork as it is promotes.

01) Start thinking about the endgame in the middle game. See #5. 02) The King Is a strong Piece: use it
03) Not all Rook endings are drawn.
04) The easiest endings to win are pure pawn endings. 05) Doubled, isolated and backward pawns are weak: avoid them. 06) When down material, trade off pawns when convenient so you don't have to defend your pawns with your pieces. Your pieces want to retain their freedom of movement, and they cannot do this if they are forced to sit still guarding a pawn. Trading the pawn sets your defensive piece free! 07) When down material, avoid piece exchanges that simplify the position. Especially hold onto your queen like your life depended upon it. The more pieces you retain on board, the better your chances of maintaining a draw (avoiding a loss). 08) When AHEAD on material, swap off like pieces but retain pawns on both sides of the board to stretch the defense out. See #4.
