Paul Morphy's Genius – Chess Opening Fundamentals
- Develop your pieces quickly!
- Get your King safe early in the game.
- Don't start an attack until you complete your development. Attacking with only a couple of pieces often fails and lets the opponent counter-attack.
- Fight for control of the center of the board.
