Chess Development
"Bits 'n' Pieces"
[Transposition]


Transposition

Transposition occurs when the same position is reached, but you get there in a slightly different sequence of moves.

In the above video clip, Transposition takes place in the Opening, as the same position is reached using two different sequences:

Sequence 1 features the Queen's Gambit:

  • 1. d4 ... d5; 2. c4 ... e6; 3. Nc3 ... Nf6

Sequence 2 features the English Opening:

  • 1. c4 ... Nf6; 2. Nc3 ... e6; 3. d4 ... d5

(Check out our Annotated Chess Guide, if you're unsure what those alpha-numeric codes mean).
