To understand openings properly, you should actually study the middle game first. Because all plans in the middle game are directly linked to the ideas from the opening. Almost everything depends on the pawn structures. That's why IM Herman Grooten takes the club chess player by the hand to take a closer look at common middle game structures.

In this video course, Grooten discusses the basic ideas of a typical structure that can arise from different opening variations, both for White and Black. It is the so-called "Hedgehog System", characterized by at least four black pawns on the sixth rank, which we call the "spikes" of the hedgehog. Another essential aspect is that exchanging a black c-pawn for a white d-pawn (as in the Sicilian) creates a position where White gains a large space advantage through c2-c4, among other things. But that the "Hedgehog" is viable will be clear in all the examples shown, as the author likes to use this system himself!
