About This Video:

Learning a new chess opening can be difficult. Chess openings range from simple setup based openings, to complex theory based openings, and many new and beginner players get overwhelmed at the process of trying to learn all of the different lines and variations that make up a chess opening. But learning a new chess opening doesn’t have to be so hard. In this video I will show you a 3 step process you can use to learn ANY new chess opening. I will go through the Benko Gambit as an example and show you exactly the process I use to learn a new opening. and amazon links are affiliate links.


  1. It's fian[k]etto、not fian[sh]etto πŸ™‚

  2. It'll never work out that good. So many variations to remember

  3. Make a video on blunder check, please!

  4. You literally make the best chess videos on the internet man, thank you

  5. This is the best video I’ve seen on how to learn chess openings

  6. Another thing I love to do in order to get my head around new openings, is to maintain the ideas of a general good opening. Therefore I'm going to look for reasons why the opening helps me grasp the center more than my opponent, or can I get my pieces active right from the beginning, or am I going to castle my king safely?The benko is a double-edged opening, which by you're resigning the center at some capacity by allowing two white pawns in the central squares, however, it could be really tricky with the open lines black would have and the restriction on the white king from getting castle early in the game.

  7. Man, thank you for your work. Keep it up, the content is always so relevant!

  8. Love your videos clear and instructive..Thank you

  9. Thanks for the video. I just asked for a video in this topic and after a day here it is ✌️😊

  10. This is a great video. For follow-up content, I would like to know how you deal with dubious responses to your opening. I'm about 1450 on Lichess and I've undertaken learning the Catalan as my main opening for white. I've maybe gotten the main line of the Open Catalan (4…dxc4 5…a6) less than 5 times in the 3 months I've been playing chess. More often than not, within the first 5-10 moves, my opponent will be the one to break out of theory. I struggle to decide which moves are worth commiting time to sequencing out versus just tossing aside as "just play solid chess from this point and you're fine". The same question comes up when I see people play sidelines of, say, the Englund Gambit (not responding with 2…Nc6 and instead maybe 2…Bc5) which is already questionable even in the main lines.

    The problem I find is, if this opponent played it, surely another will at some point, right? I'm happy to expand further or provide examples if that would be helpful. Thanks!

  11. The thumbnails are getting better and better

  12. Wikipedia is a good free resource as well !

  13. Love the longer vids! was wondering if you could do a longer more in depth video on either the king or queens gambit. Love the videos!

  14. Hey man i think a good way for you to grow your channel would be to show 2019/2020 leela/stockfish/ etc games and analyse and teach us the concept behind the moves that high level computers make.
    Why computer games? Because the are very educational and some of the move they make are just absolutely beautiful, giving us very enjoyable games to watch at the same time

  15. Great work thanks! I ordered the FCO book based on your last video and I'm excited to get started.

  16. I lost a game to the Vienna opening and stumbled upon your channel. I am glad I did, this channel is great!! and you are good teacher!. Thanks!!

  17. Hey Nelson! I want to join at least the stalemate tier. The one problem with that is that I play on lichess and not on chess. Com. I had a problem with chess . Com when I 1st 1st started playing online chess last fall. ( I didn't know certain rules/regulations) as a brand new online player, and one who hadn't played in 25 years otb. If you have any ideas on what I can do to resolve that mistake, I'm all ears as I'd love a chance to play against you. The other perks are nice too!!! Tyvm!

  18. I am at a stage where I get 0 to 8 blunders per game.

  19. I Have An Question
    When Learning An Opening Do You Have To Memorize The Name?

  20. Im around 1200 and not playing from past few months, i think i should learn more things about chess and start later!
    M'i doing good?

  21. No disrespect to the great Garry Kasparov but your videos are better than his Master Class. I gain more knowledge of the game and how to play it from you, keep up the good work!

  22. Very useful – i always got bogged down and felt sleepy with the variations

  23. Cheers for another good video.
    My takeaway was that instead of trying to memorize 15 moves I should focus on the key moves and ideas. This should help me learn the Dutch (happily an uncommon defense at the sub-2000 level)

  24. 3:01 how is .Ne4 not a blunder? It blunders the g7 pawn.

  25. Good video. Seeing you tone down the process is helpful. I have notebook pages on openings where I have gotten lost in the variations. This will help me as I focus on the Caro.

  26. In case you don't know you can download this book on pdf for free!

  27. Who is the author of the book, Fundamental Openings?

  28. the sample blunder game gave me headache lol

  29. What if your opponent doesn’t stick to your plan and after two or three moves does something else!
    You still play You still play opening? What is your benefit!

  30. The first game gave me a migrane please never do it again

  31. I'm a 1300 to 1400 player. I have a question. Aren't openings like dances? Like what if your opponent doesn't play the right move? Don't you have to change your opening?

  32. the book is alredy online or you can downoladed like a pdf

  33. just type fco pdf and you are gut to go
    I am sorry for my english
