Andrew Martin and The Basics of Winning Chess The Opening 3. Choose the right opening for you!

I managed to watch the third chapter on opening tips as well :)
In this chapter, International Master Andrew Martin talks about choosing the right opening. He tells us that knowledge of yourself and your playing style is essential when it comes to choosing your openings. He also tells us that if you're starting out in chess, it is better to play open positions. To learn how to make combinations. To learn to attack. And to generally learn how to develop your pieces. Ofcourse, this is all done during the course of yet another game. This time we get to see a very famous game between Robert James Fischer and Boris Spassky. The game that's used in this case, is to show us that Fischer certainly knew what openings to choose.

Sure i will cthigpen! Good of you to let me know by posting a message. I rarely look under the "Start A Game" link to see if i was challenged, so... I don't know what you like, but i don't mind playing from both sides of the board against my opponents, thus giving us equal chances in a way. But if you only want to play one game, that's ok as well :)
