ECO Codes of Main Openings

[*See: Chess Openings for Beginners - All Lessons]
[**See Outside: Chess Endgame Puzzles]


As chess beginner, you should have a general idea about the ECO Code system of chess openings. Also, you must know the ECO Codes of the main chess openings and their variations... The Introduction section of this lesson is to convince you why you must know, while the next section to provide you with the main ECO Codes.

I. Introduction

From this site, you will be given special chess opening videos, some chess opening pdf ebooks, and special chess opening .PGN files to effectively learn main chess openings. Producing this stuff takes time... Meanwhile, in the next lesson via Chess Links Directory at www.chesselo.com you will be given the best Internet link where you can download on weekly base the PGN files with the latest games of chess masters.

Each such .PGN file includes 3000-4000 chess masters' games. Each chess opening within this .PGN file is recorded by an ECO Code. For example, if you want to learn Bishop's Opening, just find within the .PGN file ECO Codes C23-C24. Then open the chess games in question to replay. Do you remember that you need an PGN Viewer Program to open .PGN files? In Lesson 16, you can find how to download a decent freeware PGN Viewer Program...

This method is good because you will visually see:
• how chess masters play chess openings;
• how chess masters explore the chess opening positions;
• how chess masters connect the opening phase with the middlegame;
• when chess masters stop developing and begin attack, and the like.

Besides, you should know the ECO Codes of the Main Chess Openings because of the following... To effectively learn a chess opening, it is important to create a database of the chess games on the opening learned. Preferably, the database must include the games of chess masters because they know how to correctly play the chess opening in question. You will need the database to replay the games (on the chess board) for memorizing, analyzing, and understanding...

It may be a computer database, opening card database in writing, or both... You may find many games on the Internet. The chess openings of the games found will be marked by the ECO Codes. If you know the ECO Codes of Main Chess Openings, you will quickly find the chess games needed... But be aware that one ECO Code may be one opening; one ECO Code may be also many openings. In the latter case, check also the designated moves of the openings to select correctly.

What are ECO Codes?

[See: Chess Openings for Beginners - All Lessons]

What are the ECO Codes of the chess openings?


I. Introduction

All chess openings are divided into the 3 main types, as follows:
• Open Games (chess openings): 1.e4 e5
• Semi-Open Games (chess openings): 1.e4 other
• Closed Games (chess openings): 1.other other.

For chess beginners, this chess opening division by the combination of the first moves is simple and understandable...

But chess professionals use another approach in chess opening classification. They use the ECO Codes. As chess beginner, you should know them in general, but you must know the ECO Codes of the main chess openings.


II. ECO Codes: A, B, C, D, E

When you open an ECO Codes book, you may find something like A18, D34, E70, E95, C67, and the combination of the first moves...

This is a different Classification of chess openings and their variations. Let's go deeper into the ECO Codes classification to learn more about chess openings...

ECO stands for Encyclopedia of Chess Openings. By the ECO classification, all chess openings and their variations are divided into 5 main types A, B, C, D, E by the combination of the first moves:

• A
Includes all chess openings, which:
- first moves are: without 1.d4, 1.e4
- first moves are: 1.d4 without 1... Nf6, 1... d5
- first moves are: 1.d4 Nf6 without 2.c4
- first moves are: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 without 2... e6, 2... g6

• B
Includes all chess openings, which:
- first moves are: 1.e4 without 1... c5, 1... e6, 1... e5
- first moves are: 1.e4 c5
Note: Separated, Sicilian Defense (1.e4 c5) is ECO Code B.

• C
Includes all chess openings, which:
- first moves are: 1.e4 e6
- first moves are: 1.e4 e5
Note: All Open Games chess openings (1.e4 e5) are ECO Code C.

• D
Includes all chess openings, which:
- first moves are: 1.d4 d5
- first moves are: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 with 3... d5

• E
Includes all chess openings, which:
- first moves are: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6
- first moves are: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 without 3... d5



III. ECO Codes: Number Subdivision 00-99

ECO Codes classification does not include any Names of chess openings and their variations: Just the letters, numbers, and the first moves... Each ECO type A, B, C, D, E is broken down into 100 subcategories, from 00 to 99. For example, let's see these ECO Code lines:

• C 23
1.e4 e5 2.Bc4
- without 2... Nf6
• C 24
1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6

You know that the designated move order of Bishop's Opening is 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4. See the above ECO Code lines and compare. You see now that the ECO Codes of Bishop's Opening are C23-C24. If you have downloaded the Bishop-opening-sample.pgn file and PGN Viewer Program in Lesson 16: Download PGN Viewer Program, you already know that the main variations of Bishop's Opening are:

• Berlin Defense: 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6; ECO Code C24.
• Classical Defense (Boi Variation): 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Bc5; ECO Code C23.
• Philidor Counterattack: 1.e4 e5 2. Bc4 c6; ECO Code C23.

• The Nc6 Variation: 1. e4 e5 2. Bc4 Nc6; ECO Code C23.
• The d6 Variation: 1. e4 e5 2. Bc4 d6; ECO Code C23.
• Calabrian (Calabrese) Countergambit: 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 f5; ECO Code C23.

See again the above ECO Code lines and compare. See that Berlin Defense variation, which is the main one of Bishop's Opening is ECO Code C24, and the rest variations of Bishop's Opening are ECO Code C23...

On the next lesson, we will learn why you must know the ECO Codes of the main chess openings. Its name will be ECO Codes of the Main Openings.
