What do you recommend learning? I've recently taken an interest in chess but I feel as though I don't know what I'm doing after the opening. I doubt thinking of shit to do on my own will be good in the long run, some theory should be learnt I think.

Youtube is full of chess teaching videos

watch GMHikaru on Youtube; he explains his advanced moves, but you can probably get far enough by analysing what he's doing.

Learn the openings and also the end games, I wouldn't stress too much about the mid game.

Play the game and find your way of playing. I play chess often with my brother when we get together and usually we have a pretty good clue about our playstyles but this brings countering to the table. Treat it as a game first, then as something else.

I think it depends on your style. If you're going to attack then look for a weaker area in your oponent's defence and concentrate there or you could just focus on defence and try to win by advantageous trades. There are many more ways to play but I think it's not a good idea to strictly follow a rigid set of moves you copy from somewhere, if your oponent recognize them then you will get rekt.

"I think it's not a good idea to strictly follow a rigid set of moves you copy from somewhere, if your oponent recognize them then you will get rekt" This exactly. Just see what happened with moistcrit1cal and XQC

can i get a source
2020-11-12 13:30
do lots of "tactics" to get the hang of it (these are the positions where you can gain an advantage in a few moves) you can look into a few openings, but the endgame theory is much more important finally develop before starting an attack

I really recommend GothamChess on youtube. He has this 10 minutes courses like openings for both black and white, really informative and easy to understand videos. But what i recommend is depending on what website you use, just play puzzles. Like a lot. Puzzles make you better.

Well - Botez is low rated. GM Vidit is super GM. i have followed him from 2015 when he won bronze in some event which i dont remember now. He's good positional player.

It sounds basic but at first you want to focus on simply getting your pieces out. If you get good at finding a rhythm of what pieces to develop first and where to put them, you gain an early advantage by being able to set up an attack / being prepared for defense. At first you want to stick to 1 or maximum 2 responses to common openings per side. If you play white, then try to stick to a sequence that you feel comfortable playing - maybe something simple like e4, nf3. That way you get a feel of what works against the opponent's response to your sequence of moves, and you can progress from there. If you have these basics down in 500-1000 elo you will win the majority of your games. No need to try and make a fancy checkmate or anything, just stick to the basics. After that you can focus on checkmating patterns with king + queen, king + rook etc. I am by no means a professional or for that matter "good" chess player, but these fundamentals helped me get from ~600 elo to 1200 elo, peak 1500 elo.

GothamChess his content is really helpfull but i don't play chess anymore, i suck
2020-11-12 12:09
Eric Rosen is a chad, as for openings themselves: Stafford Gambit: Classic as black King/Queen's Gambit: Again, classics Sicilian (Dragon variation): Bit more advanced but still a classic And yeah, those are the openings i'd suggest learning as a start point =D
2020-11-12 13:39
Read a few books about chess theory, learn some of the more common opens and the variations to them, and watch streams/YT channels of top players. GothamChess has amazing stuff on YT.
2020-11-12 13:43
As a beginner I would recommend one of the premium chess.com memberships. Their classes are really great for beginners and you can just review your game later on and they'll tell you what went wrong. Not that expensive too. If no money and poor then YouTube plus frequent chess.com matches. Later on when you master the basics you can watch high level match analysis and see what you can do to improve.Best way to learn is to play with real people. As a 2.1k elo player Biggest tip I can give is to think before making a move and then ask your self why your opponent made their move.

Honestly just get on a site like lichess and play play play. I learned my openings not traditionally by studying tnem but learning the best moves due to gettinf outplayed by pekple who did. Learning for yourself is a great way to get better since it will be less "what am I supposed to do here" and more "what would I do here" ya know what I mean? Memorizing openings is good and all but the midgame is half the battle. Endgame tactics and the opening are all memorization but the midgame is where a noob can shine with improvised tactics. Shoot you can even screw some people in the opening by playing to counter what they are setting up. For tbe midgame you need to think up some goals. Are you a guy who is constantly looking for a mate? Are yoh purposely trading pieces to setup opportunities to grab pawns? You need to figure out for yourself how you want to play. For me, i play the modern style just push my pawns out, get my bishop in my castle on either side and play my knighta behind my pawns so I have options to not only bust open the center but to force trades where I can either pick up a free piece due to tbwm misreading the situation or come up a pawn due to stacking the attack. Then when im up a few pawns i force piece trades where if theh dont capture I mate them. Once we trade im up in pawns and can do memorized endgame tactics, which really were learned the hard way
