GW-KW, Point Count Chess Raw Discussion, File #6:
Part of the Advanced Beginner's Chess Guide (Section 2)
(GW, June 2nd) Ken, I think Center Domination will be better discussed while working through an, or a series of, openings. At the moment, I feel I'm just going round and round in circles with the book-info; I "kind of get" some of the issues covered by H&M-S and Dan Heisman. Then, when I attempt to turn what I've read into practice - by playing openings against Fritz - ideas clash and progress grinds to a halt.
I've started off an Opening sequence (White) v. Fritz:
1. Nf3 Nf6 2. g3 d5 3. Bg2 c5 4. O-O
(GW, June 2nd) I've gone for the Barcza Opening, recommended by Yasser Seirawan (Winning Chess Openings, p201).}
