This is a book for those who want to start their chess games purposefully and take full advantage of their opponents' mistakes.

It is important to start a chess game well. Every move must be useful and precise. The best way to develop the necessary know-how is through experience and practice, not by memorizing "rules" and principles. It is about the specifics and always paying attention to what your opponent is doing and striking immediately when he makes a mistake.

Chess Openings for Kids Workbook is the third in a new series of books that help players gain chess knowledge by solving hundreds of carefully selected exercises. The topics are very similar to those in Gambit's best-selling Chess for Kids series, but the emphasis here is on important practical experience. Many positions build on previous ones, and it is shown that advanced ideas usually consist of simple elements that we can all understand.

Each chapter focuses on a specific topic and contains dozens of exercises with solutions that highlight key strategic and tactical points. Each chapter offers tips for opening play, such as how to spot weaknesses and poorly placed pieces. Later chapters cover key aspects of opening strategy, such as the center, development, and castling. The book ends with a series of seven graded tests that give you minimal hints about the topics covered.

The award-winning author Graham Burgess has written 27 chess books, including two on the opening for the Chess for Kids series. He is a FIDE master and former champion of the Danish region of Funen. In 1994 he set a world record in marathon blitz chess.
