Time factor title
“Develop your pieces as quickly as possible”

  Try to get the most out of each move.

  Bring fresh force into play rather than move a piece that is already in play.

  This principle applies right through the game.

Time factor

  The player who completes his/her development first has the initiative, which is a real advantage.

  The problem of where to place your pieces when you develop them is solved by this advice or maxim: “centralize”.

  Let every piece have some bearing on the center.
