Best Chess Opening For Beginners

Check out my Chessable course “Counterblow: A Complete Fighting Repertoire for Beginners” here

I always say openings are not as important as middle and endgame. However, after years teaching private students and over 200 lessons on Youtube, I have gathered enough feedback to say this is the best opening for beginners!

Chess is an intellectual battle where players are exposed to numerous mental processes such as analysis, attention to detail, synthesis, concentration, planning and foresight. Psychological factors are also present on and off the board; playing Chess stimulates our imagination and creativity. Every single move a player makes is the result of a deep analysis based on the elements presented on the battlefield.

Chess in its essence teaches us psychological, sociological and even moral values. In a Chess game, both players start with the same amount of material and time. The fact that the white pieces move first is considered to be practically irrelevant —especially because a player typically plays one game as white and one game as black. Consequently, the final result of the battle solely depends on each player. It doesn’t matter if you win by taking advantage of your opponent’s mistakes or by simply avoiding mistakes yourself. Truth is that Chess is an extremely individual sport and our defeats can only be blamed on ourselves and no one else. And this, in the end, only benefits us because we learn to be and feel responsible for our actions and never come up with excuses to justify ourselves.

We also learn that when it comes to our victories on the board, our opponent’s mistakes play a more significant role than our own skills. Let’s not forget that a Chess game without any mistakes would be a draw. This way, Chess provides us with another valuable life lesson: be humble at all times.

  1. Have watched this video three times now. I have been playing the Pirc Defense and the London Opening that you suggested. Was opposed to learning openings a year ago when my indifference set in again. However, they started a Veterans Chess Club in August 2023 and my interest returned.

    I'm commenting now because we have an acommplished member who once reached 1790 Elo – our strongest player – who has mentioned twice that I've begun with the Vienna helping some ladies ease into playing. It just seemed natural to me to back up the e4 pawn with the knight to c3 – but I wasn't playing a system. I'd heard of the Vienna but didn't know the positioning. It reminds me of a reverse London. I like how you explained the London with opposite-side castling. Still gotta get comfortable with making contact first – the right way.

    I'm rambling. Yet as we approach our fourth meeting next week, you've helped me grasp the Vienna better. I'm taking to fianchettoing the bishops in the Pirc and Vienna. Oh, my current rating is about 530 – so I've got a heap of improving to do before year's end. I believe I can hang with 1000-rated players, but I guess the numbers don't lie. Thank you for being my coach.

    Edit: I erred in saying the Vienna is like a reverse London. I noted similarities in my mind, but they are distinct and I don't want to mislead anyone. Fourth viewing….

  2. I've been playing this opening for 2 days now and can say for sure that my game has improved. I'm a complete noob with elo 370. I'd like to know the name of the opening,please.

    Also, you channel is great. Great lessons. Thank you for what you doing.

  3. I watched till 35 lessons and I have a very good improvement

  4. This is a psyop, Professor RobRam wants all noobs to play E4 so we get an easy Pirc against them
