Complete Chess Course. Volume 1: Opening Principles

This Opening Principles disk is the first volume of the Complete Chess Course. It demonstrates that you don't need to try to memorize hundreds of opening variations as long as you play the opening by following common basic ideas. You'll learn all about fast development, centralization, mobility, and defense, all of which will help you get a good position which will lead directly into a playable middle game. The next two volumes in this course are Tactics & Strategy, and Endgames.
