The top 10 best chess plans for the middlegame. After the opening, one of the biggest problems beginners and intermediate players have is what to do next. In this video I go over several examples of types of chess plans and strategies that you can use in your next game! and amazon links are affiliate links.


  1. Always scan the board for vulnerabilities, watch out for pins, look for forks and pins yourself, and try to push pawns to promote, pushing pawns always puts pressure on your opponent and forces them to focus on blocking the pawn.

  2. at 11:11 I've seen this knight-bishop trade in English opening often, but I don't know why they take with the D-pawn instead of with the B-pawn – that contradicts one of the main principles to take with pawn toward the center.
    But when shown in a video like this usually the subject is different and so I've never heard why it's accepted.
    Does anyone know?

  3. Jesus Christ died for all of our sins. He died the death we all deserved. He was the perfect one who never sinned once, but he loved us so much he decided to die for us so our sins would be paid for and we can enter the Kingdom of Heaven before God the Father blamelessly. He is the living son of God who wants to know us and have a personal relationship with us. No matter what you have done no matter how far gone you think you are Jesus can and will save you. All you have to do is confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior. Believe that he died on the cross for your sins and had a bodily resurrection 3 days later. We cannot be saved by our works but by faith in Christ alone. Repent and turn to Christ. You will have joy, happiness, love, and peace beyond understanding.

  4. I am a 11 year old chess noob just starting out and the idea of the battery is so cool to know now. Now I can beat my dad๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  5. Hey if you are reading this, there is a mistake at 8:18 if you move the horse to a5 the bishop at g5 will take the pawn and gets a better position make it much more aggressive

  6. I have been playing chess for 60 years and never knew any of these plans, although I stumble into some. My 2 sons have started to beat me , so maybe this will give me an edge, for a month or so.

  7. Does the Middle Game start at the castling of the King if that happens?

  8. 8:00 why instead of hopping the knight around we don't trade off black's knight, if they capture by the queen, play a prfilactic a3 and hop our knight on the outpost. And if they capture by their other knight, then we think about the route for our f3 knight to the outpost?

  9. I once managed to completely lock my opponent's bishop and a rook, on their starting squares and the whole game here was technically playing down two pieces. And I eventuality managed to trap and capture his rook for free and then capture his stuck bishop by my king in the endgame.

  10. Nice clear explanations with some great ideas! Thanks!
