CHERNEV'S LOGICAL CHESS MOVE BY MOVE
Compiled by srkoziol
--*--

Control the center - develop before attacking - avoid moving the three pawns in front of the castled King for as long as possible (a white mistake on #7, subsequently exploited). Victory with superior and patient development. Block doubled pawns. Control the center. D5 - normally reserve for a piece, not pawn. The best openings to play are the ones you are most at home in.
