28 ( +1 | -1 ) To every story...There is a beginning, a middle and an end....but where do those occur in chess? What are peoples ideas about where an opening ends and a midgame starts? When do you stop developing and start with the tactics? Do you stop developing? Thoughts welcome...... Cheers Charlie

Traps are possible, as are pawn forks, fork tricks, etc. * I would recommend buying a good chess dictionary, like "The Oxford Companion to Chess".
