Each piece is introduced with its basic strategy, placing rooks on open files, not fixing pawns of the color of your bishop. But there is so much more. Basic development, pawn strategies, and castling. There’s an introduction to chess openings and endgames, and even a range of middlegame themes and mating patterns.
