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......

opening is when u know what you are doing , mid-game is when u think u maybe know what might be best , and endgame is where u aint got a clue !

Chess Related Topic I am voting to have this topic moved to the Chess-Related topics forum, where it would be more likely to receive the feedback it deserves. To vote, just click "mod this thread" at the top of the page.

Many a tactic is successful in the opening, simply because the opponent is lulled into a false sense of security this early in the game. Traps are possible, as are pawn forks, fork tricks, etc.

I would recommend buying a good chess dictionary, like "The Oxford Companion to Chess".

Opening is when your moves have been analyzed or
documented in someone else's database.

Midgame is when anyone start to divert or make his own
variation and the other party start to find the refutation.

Endgame starts when anyone of the players knows what
the (theoritical) end result gonna be, a win a lose or a
draw. So if you play with mateintwo, you reach the
endgame right from the start :))
