Let me share with you a few interesting quotes:
“I had to spend countless hours, above and beyond the basic time, to try and perfect the fundamentals” – Julius Erving
“Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals” – Jim Rohn
“What people don’t realize is that professionals are sensational because of the fundamentals. The sensationalism has taken over the professionalism” – Barry Larkin
We can clearly understand the fact that the BASICS (the fundamentals) are very important – be it in chess, math, science, or even life!
That’s why we’ve invited a guest coach to prepare a lesson for you on the basic yet most important principles of chess. Today, I’d like to introduce to you a new chess coach, Marko Makaj. He is a FIDE Master and has recorded a new video lesson for you.
In this lesson, he explains everything you need to know about openings. The video is for a beginner-player and in it you can understand the importance of development and the center.
