Note: This is the introductory lesson to the course “Top 25 Middlegame Concepts” by GM Igor Smirnov.
What is a chess guideline? What is a chess principle/concept? A chess concept/rule/principle/guideline is a certain relatively universal pattern that you can use in any and every chess game of yours.
🔹 Why Learn Chess Concepts/Principles?
Well, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of chess rules! Although not every chess term stands for a rule, very often it correlates. As you can see the glossary of chess, it has everything from A-Z.
So, if you try studying different chess books, videos, etc., you can spend your lifetime learning chess without really mastering it. But, how is it possible that 12-year-old kids become chess masters? It is because they focus on the most important principles.
In this introductory lesson, you will see how a commonly known chess principle “Knight on the rim is dim” is universal, meaning that it is applicable in any stage of the chess game!
