Toast to V-Day
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Another older branch off file initially based upon a simple white repertoire by Once using 1.e4 w/a kingside fianchetto. It has been quadrupled w/enhancements here. Thanks Once! Thank you to contributions from ISeth as well.

Games at the bottom of the list (not yet elevated into proper ECO order) are for consideration.

* Here's a link to common Checkmate Patterns:
http://gambiter.com/chess/Checkmate...

* Study Middlegames and Endgames instead of Openings! However, you still need to understand common opening traps in your chosen openings! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoI...

- Double King Pawn: Bishop's Opening (K's Gambit Declined C30).

- French Defense: King's Indian Attack w/Nd2 avoids Bb4 pin.

- Sicilian Defense: Sicilian Closed w/Nc3 and Bg2.

A matching book is Attacking with 1e4 by John Emms.

Notice in the video that White makes about 3 pawn moves (e4, d3, and then g3 or f4) and brings out the minor pieces to bare on the center near each side of the pawn skeleton. Then White castles kingside and the rooks protect each other on the back rank. He must anticipate advances by the opposing army and know what he's going to do beforehand when the opposing pawns make contact with his pawns (advance past, initiate an exchange, or remain in place and defend from behind).

* Fredthebear's game collection mildly resembles the video link in some ways. FTB does prescribe a simple repertoire concept for amateur players, supported by the latest volume of MCO for competitive intermediate and advanced players. (The majority of the world's common chess players do not have the time commitment in their family/school/work lifestyle to become national or international masters, so the path to GM greatness does not apply to them. There's much more money to be had in other professions.)

Chess skill development in the middlegame and endgame will boost one's chances of victory; any slight opening edge fades out against a better player. Sprinters might look good this day or that, but sprinting does not win the Tour de France bicycle race; it's the seasoned riders who are in it for the long haul that win out overall. Strong, well-rounded chess players usually overcome their adversary's opening study.

Those who fail to improve at chess are not studying one aspect or the other, not recording their games and understanding why they lost, not reviewing enough published master games, playing too many different openings. So many common players repeat the same bad habits such as hiding behind pawns, not using all their pieces, leaving pieces unprotected, ignoring the opponent's next possible move while looking for their own move, or rushing to play the first reasonable move they see when a better one was available. THE MORE YOU STUDY, THE MORE YOU EASILY SEE AT THE CHESSBOARD!

Chess success comes from understanding and experience, knowing what to look for, recognizing re-occurring patterns. Chess is a puzzle arrangement; it's no different than an informed medical doctor studying the x-ray to perform a surgery properly to fix the problem. The doctor looks, s/he sees the area, s/he plans, s/he performs, the patient heals. A good chess player must observe and think -- consider all the options first. There are no magic, silver bullet openings in chess! Study the Middlegame and Endgame to expand your observation, planning, and calculation skills. The longer the game lasts, the more the chess puzzle changes, the better you become by studying those situations that arise later in the game.
