Openings: Theory and Practice

Although I first saw this article on FireyRook's site, I shall link the primary source to all of you in case you missed it. The article on openings was written by WGM Natalia Pogonina. She may not be the best female player around (we all know who that is), but she is still a WGM. If you wish to know more about Natalia, here is the wikipedia link.

This is how a professional thinks about an opening, as opposed to a mind coach who does not play chess.

In the article, you will find tips on how to study openings, what is the purpose of preparing openings and what are the factors that should influence one's choice of openings.

Hopefully, some of us can find this information more useful than others. Click here to check it out.
