Punishing Opening Errors

Get the maximum from the opening

Have you ever faced opponents who deviate from opening theory rather early? Has your opponent ever made early opening mistakes that you weren't able to exploit? If so, come study Chess University's "Punishing Opening Errors" video course by Coach Ryan Murphy.

This 90-minute course was created to directly address a common question received when Ryan was analyzing lots of games for Chess University. Students acknowledged that their opponents had played a slow or sub-optimal move in the opening but were sometimes unable to punish it.

Study this course to learn when to strike quickly using forcing play and when to patiently optimize piece placement in order to nurse a small, static advantage. The course contains many bits of practical advice on how to further improve at punishing opening errors as well as tips for studying classical games to gain an intuitive sense for the initiative.
