Top 10 Chess Openings

The most common question I get asked is the top chess openings a player should learn in chess so I thought I’d create a video to answer that question. In semi-order we have:

10. Slav Defense
9. London System
8. Caro Kann
7. Fried Liver Attack
6. French Defense
5. Ruy Lopez
4. Nimzo-Indian Defense
3. King’s Gambit
2. Sicilian Defense
1. Queen’s Gambit


  1. you do anybody have problems with the video??

  2. I wish this included some explanation. I understand how to put the pieces where you tell me. But what is the logic? What makes these openings strong?

  3. I've been doing Ruy lopez all this time as a beginner and didn't know it Lol

  4. damn yeh the kings gambit is e4 e5 nf4?? Probs a slip up in the script I guess

  5. Didn't even explain pros and cons with these different openings

  6. i just move up my most corner pawns and towers, cant get by my castle if i keep expanding past the hill

  7. Hate it I hate it I hate it I hate it I hate I hate my love it I love it

  8. Bro u literally explained NOTHING about the Sicilian defence

  9. The waffle house has found its new host says:

    Here in germany we call the bishop "runner"

  10. Just setting this aside:
    This video was made 7 years ago, and now players have realized that the King’s gambit is not that good anymore and people have ways to counter play it.

  11. nice tutorial sir thank you.
    but since so many opening was addressing the queen's gambit i think it should have been in the start of the video

  12. So it turns out my favorite opening is slav but on queens side?

  13. Koevid-19 IVF 0.15 Pandemie AngstPorno NOS wappies says:

  17. I do one that i bring out my pawn on E2 then if they bring their pawn out on F7 then i move my queen to h5 and thats check mate

  18. I have won 100 chess matches online on clash of kings without knowing these lol

  19. I do well with Fried Liver and Scandinavian. I always get mauled by the opponents queen when I try King's Indian.

  20. idk why I use king Indian while I'm in blacks side

  21. Can't really find a video that explains even briefly the common plans for the most popular openings . That would be a most appreciated video

  23. God loves you so much get too know him before it's too late ❤️

  24. Wowww, I'm always amazed by players who mastered a lot of openings and patterns in chess, it's very hard to memorize all of them, but when you memorize them you can counter some openings and can also easily find some tricks and traps❤️❤️

  25. Who knew all this time i was playing fried liver attack? And by the way why is it called that? 😆

  26. Question with the fried liver defense at the end when you have the bisschop and the queen with wich one do you eat the horse?
