Punishing Opening Mistakes

Are opening principles really that important?  What happens if you break a few rules? Well, strong players know exactly how to recognize and punish inferior opening moves.  In this camp we will study how masters exploit opening mistakes to maintain an advantage into the middlegame and endgame.

Beginners will review the opening principles and study miniature games which highlight why these principles are important.  More advanced students will learn to recognize positional weaknesses and build middlegame plans which focus on weak squares and other vulnerabilities.
