Here, Grandmaster Chris Ward explains the important ideas behind every major opening, unravelling among others, the secrets of the Sicilian, the mysteries of the Modern and the fundamentals of the French.
He emphasises the need to understand the key elements of each opening rather than memorising a series of complicated variations that can leave you stranded.
