Top 10 Chess Openings

The most common question I get asked is the top chess openings a player should learn in chess so I thought I’d create a video to answer that question. In semi-order we have:

10. Slav Defense
9. London System
8. Caro Kann
7. Fried Liver Attack
6. French Defense
5. Ruy Lopez
4. Nimzo-Indian Defense
3. King’s Gambit
2. Sicilian Defense
1. Queen’s Gambit


  1. you forgot to mention the best opening, f3

  2. i just move up my most corner pawns and towers, cant get by my castle if i keep expanding past the hill

  3. Hate it I hate it I hate it I hate it I hate I hate my love it I love it

  4. Bro u literally explained NOTHING about the Sicilian defence

  5. Here in germany we call the bishop "runner"

  6. Just setting this aside:
    This video was made 7 years ago, and now players have realized that the King’s gambit is not that good anymore and people have ways to counter play it.

  7. nice tutorial sir thank you.
    but since so many opening was addressing the queen's gambit i think it should have been in the start of the video

  8. So it turns out my favorite opening is slav but on queens side?

  9. And how do you know what opening to play against the other?

  10. 6:45 why did you say knight when you moved the pawn
