Chess Openings

Chess is one of my favorite hobbies or pastimes. I enjoy playing against Fritz 8, my computer program, but the software is so strong it can beat most grandmasters, so I have to reduce the playing strength. I can win if I set it at the level of a moron or a drunk. Here's one of my favorite opening moves when playing black. I always move my queen pawn two spaces forward on the first move. This gives me control of the center and opens a diagonal for my white bishop. This opening is called the Queen's Pawn Game. It is my distinct pleasure to recommend Fritz to any chess player. (Looks like the latest version is Fritz 11.)
