I have recently found out about a new chess variant called antichess. I was wondering how to get better at it. Are there any opening moves or strategies in antichess that might help beginners in this chess variant better learn the game? If so, please explain in detail.

  • Do a google search, antichess, aka losers chess, has been solved. – Herb Wolfe Nov 1 '17 at 2:12
  • @Herb Wolfe What do you mean it has been 'solved'? – jkl3699 Nov 1 '17 at 2:14

    Just that, it's been solved. e3 is a forced win for white, while about a dozen other first moves lose for white, according to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Losing_Chess – Herb Wolfe Nov 1 '17 at 3:19

A strategy that I use when trying to get better at antichess is to open up your bishops. Once you to that, you are able to get your opponent in a pawn trap, making them continuously attack your pieces.
