In this video, I have a chess lesson with a friend who recently caught the online chess bug. We review some of his recent games and address common opening mistakes along with the potential improvements. Towards the end of the video, we go over some more specific opening strategy that focuses on piece activity and immediately pressuring the opponent’s position. I know this video is targeted for for beginning players, but I hope viewers can find some value in it!
