4.0 étoiles sur 5 A good but slightly unbalanced approach 5 septembre 2005
Par Robert J. Newell - Publié sur Amazon.com
In the search for the holy grail of a low-ranking player's opening repertoire I've gone through quite a few books, keeping in mind that low-rankers such as I should spend the great bulk of study time on tactics, not openings.

So what is needed is something to get through the opening and into the middle game with at least rough equality; and this has to be done without learning countless variations and endless theory, most of which the lower class player is unlikely to encounter in any event.

Schiller attempts to provide just this sort of thing, and succeeds at least to some degree. The book starts with the obligatory material on chess notation (which surely you know by now, or this book is not for you at all) and continues with about 18 pages on basic opening principles. The book continues with 60 pages on "Your White Openings," about 50 more on "Your Black Openings," and concludes with 10 pages on "Closed Games."

Recommended for White is e4 and the Bishop's Opening (Bc4) in response to e5. How to play against other major lines, such as the Sicilian, French, etc., is covered as well. Schiller emphasizes concepts rather than lines and variations, which at the target skill level seems like the right thing. The criticism of not enough depth might apply, but unfairly, as that is not the purpose here.

Schiller uses up quite a bit of space on the Fried Liver Attack (and more space later on its defense). While interesting and fun, these pages could have been better used on Closed Games, as I'll discuss below.

To defend against e4 Schiller recommends e5 and takes us on a survey tour of where the game might go from there. He asks us not to be afraid of the Ruy Lopez and recommends the relatively unusual Cozio Defense. He explains the concepts quite well; you'll have to decide if this variant is to your taste.

Schiller really skimps when, in the final chapter, he gets around to defending against 1 d4. His comment that you won't see the opening very often doesn't quite ring true enough. He takes us through one possible defense and leaves it at that. There is *no* discussion of any other White opening such as the English, Bird's etc. etc.

The book starts out strong and seems to fade little by little, almost as if the author ran out of energy, or more likely, allowable page count.

So, should you use this book? I think it provides many valuable insights and a reasonable plan for the lower class player, but even with its goal of presenting ideas, it lacks completeness. That said, it is probably one of the best books of its type. After all, the challenge of the almost self-contradictory concept of a "simplified beginner's opening repertoire" is considerable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Loved it! 11 février 2009
Par Richla - Publié sur Amazon.com
I took a chance and bought this book, SO glad I did. Opening Study seems overwhelming to an amatuer player like myself. I pick up books on the Sicilian for example, and think "who am I kidding, I will never learn this??"
This book, actually helped me, and helped a lot. With one Saturday afternoon, this book, and my chess board, I can play my computer and go a half dozen moves into various openings and defenses.
Am I an expert at the Najdorf Sicilian? No, but I am a lot better off than I was, I now grasp how the Modern Defense can transition into other openings, etc.
My computer normally responds (as black) with the French Defense, Caro-Kann, or the Sicilian. I now actually recognize those systems, have a gameplan, and further study will make me stronger.
All this for $13? I'd say that's a GREAT bargain.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Exactly what it says 20 novembre 2007
Par Juan Palm - Publié sur Amazon.com
An excellent introduction to the most important parts of opening theory with some ideas to give you a fun, open game. It has some rewarding tricks and traps, but is mostly designed to show you step by step how to make the most from the opening without mindless memorization.

The section on closed games is very thin, but since most elementary games do not feature Queens Gambit or English Opening, this is little to fear.

Most importantly, in his usual style, Schiller spends his time explaining the WHY of the moves, not just lists of analysis.

I heartily recommend this volume as a way to get an opening repertoire for elementary or beginning players.

Later, you will need to add other books to round out your game, especially for Queen's pawn openings. (For this I like Complete Defense To Queen Pawn Openings (Cardoza Publishing's Essential Opening Repertoire Series).)

First Openings will give you enough opening knowledge to prevent frustration long enough to focus on tactics and endgame.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 First Chess Openings 24 mars 2011
Par James W. Carter - Publié sur Amazon.com
I really liked this book. It is written in a way that keeps your interest up and is easy to follow along with a chess set up beside you. I have tried to read many a chess book only to find that it was too hard to follow, or so tangential that I always forgot where I was before I got to the end of a topic. Chess books have a tendency to say if B6 then A7 but if C6 then, or, but only if, rarely, once upon a time.. This book keeps it simple and in the begining simple is exactly where you are at.

It is not meant to be a complete reference guide, but a beginning book on openings that if read well and studied a bit will give you enough knowledge and understanding to tacke the next book on opening. Though the author suggest that you now read a book on tactics before trying to delve any deeper into opening theory.

I realize that it did not spend a lot of time on closed games, and I have to agree with some other reviews that wonder why. The author states that you won't see closed queen pawn openings in beginner or casual chess. I have not found that to be true however. Chess is advancing very rapidly and even begining chess players are using more sophisticated openings. In addition, at tournaments or online, you get matched with all sorts of players of all kinds of talent and experience. Where are the abundance of beginner players that only use the king pawn openings he is talking about.

Don't misunderstand. I like the book and highly recomend it to anyone wanting to increase their understanding of openings. It is easy to read and well organized. The only criticism I can make is that I haven't found that my begining games are just with people interested in the king pawn openings. I am re reading this book and enjoying it more the second time. 158 pages and lots of pictures. The print is also larger than in most chess books. My compliments to the Author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 great intro for a lifelong beginner 31 octobre 2010
Par D. Steinberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I'm a lifelong beginner who could win games vs. other beginners here and there but never took time to study chess or really know what I was doing. I learned a lot from a book called How to Beat Your Dad at Chess (Gambit chess) -- it's about checkmates and strategies for ending games. Openings are harder, though, because what you're trying to accomplish is not as clear as a checkmate. I'd looked at other chess openings books and they went through move sequences without saying why a particular move was supposed to be so great. This First Chess Openings book does that -- it lays out some basic goals you're trying to accomplish with the opening moves. After you know that, the specific moves it shows make more sense. So this was just right.
