7 Best Openings for Beginners & Club players

Openings For Club Players with 1.e4

1.King’s Indian Attack

One of the 7 best openings for beginners & club players.  Also Bobby Fischer’s favorite opening. It is a universal setup that is easy to remember. It suits almost all replies from black. Rarely do we see white face any trouble in this setup. And KIA gives easy plans to remember, and also fianchetto castle gives good enough safety to the king which is good for beginners. Club players can get good results if they learn plans within it.

Openings For Club Players with 1.d4 and other moves

1. London system for white

The London System is a Queen’s pawn opening, where white develops the dark-squared bishop on f4 early. The typical move order is 1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Bf4
The London System is a great chess opening for beginner players. It quickly develops the dark square bishop which opens diagonal quickly. So white have the option to push e3 also and get both bishops in open diagonals after the development of the white square bishop.

2. Queen’s gambit for white

Queen’s Gambit is the opening that most resembles “general principles”. Pawn d4, c4, Knight and Bishop development, castle and done. It is played in the right order and while answering the opponent’s moves. Almost like using opening principles. It is easy to use from the white side even gambit excepted or declined.

3. English opening for white

Play 1.c4 and Cooldown. Most players are prepared well against 1e4 and 1.d4 but fewer people are prepared against 1.c4 because rarely do players face this. So, beginners and club players can play this opening easily. Also, they can do simple development of Knights bishops, and if they want to use it as a setup opening, they can keep the position close by planning e3 and d3 and avoiding exchange in the center.
Close position, Easy development, Strong pawn structure, and fewer tactics so your opening fazes will go safe.

Openings For Club Players with Against 1.e4

1. Center counter/Scandinavian defense for black

Due to its easy nature and easy-to-remember lines, this opening suits beginners also. Players get easily playable positions. Black attacks white`s King`s Pawn straight away, and in the meantime opens lines for some pieces to develop. Black doesn’t give center control to white and usually gets a good pawn structure.

2. Caro-Kann for black

In this opening black can give a solid reply to 1.e4 by the moves 1.e4 c6, when black will follow soon by playing ..d5. Black gets a solid position like Slav defense with no weaknesses in the pawn structure. After the d7-d5 advance, it is hard for white to break the center pawn chain. So, any beginner or a club player can stay in a game for a long time even against a strong player.

Openings For Club Players with Against 1.d4

1. Slav defense for black

Due to its solid nature, it suits the beginner level. This opening is the best for those who blunder their pieces because for a long time in the game all pieces will be in support. And some pieces are inside the pawn structure. so less chance to blunder pieces.

Because they are solid openings, we believe these seven are the best for beginners and club players. Helps in avoiding complicated or aggressive openings and safe lines for good results.
