Castling in Chess

In Chess, the general rule is to castle early. But there are exceptions to this rule, as all rules have. Delay castling, at times, if the position permits.

When you delay the castling you can assess and plan better. Also, castling early may attract some forceful attack on your King, at times.

So, "Castle when you must; not when you can."

Opening Preparation in Chess

Opening Preparation is necessary if one wishes to reach some place significant in the field of chess.

It might not always get you win after win, but it will at least give you more time to think in the middle-game, where the result of the battle is often decided.
