  • Before you move, check to make sure that you have protected all of your pieces.
  • In the opening, try to:
    • Control the center of the board
    • Develop pieces (especially knights and bishops) by moving them off the back rank
    • Castle early.
    • Generally, making a lot of queen moves in the opening is a bad idea.
  • Keep your king safe behind other pieces (often pawns).
