The opening phase is more important because if you don’t play it well, you will lose sooner than you can demonstrate your middle game/endgame skills. In order to play the opening properly, a lot of people believe that one should just study a lot of opening variations and typical ideas/tricks. Although this is partly correct, there’s actually a huge hole here.
The opening stage lasts for 15-20 moves and on every move either opponents can play around 10 different logical moves. Ultimately this generates many thousands (perhaps millions) of variations. Obviously there’s no way for us to analyze and remember them all.
How do you play an opening successfully?
1) You need to choose the right opening variations (your opening repertoire), and learn the necessary lines within them.
2) You need to know the general rules/principles of opening play, and how you can find correct moves in unknown opening positions.
