Chess Opening Theory

Publisher: Wikibooks

Description:
The opening of a game of chess is a battle between two equally matched armies. There is no method that will secure one player a decisive advantage independent from what his opponent does. If there were, no one would play chess. Winning a game of chess depends on one's opponent making inaccurate moves.
