“Since the beginning of the sixteenth century, Chess theory has been the subject of intense investigation. The majority of this study has been dedicated to the Chess Openings. Since these opening moves will eventually determine the course of the game, it is understood that the first moves are those of greater importance.”   -- Al Horowitz & Fred Reinfeld
