First Chess Moves
The best first chess moves for White are: 1.e4, 1.d4, 1.Nf3, 1.c4. Forget the rest, they are dubious. Don’t waste your time with rubbish moves.
You can see in the image above the most common opening moves. I suggest you play first move 1.d4 because this way you can play a quiet positional game most of the time and have a slight long-lasting advantage if you play correctly.
The second advantage is that you cut your workload into half because you don’t have to learn e4 opening lines like the Sicilian Defence, the French, The Pirc, the Ruy Lopez, the Caro Kann etc.
