After I learned how to move the pieces, I only worked on the endgame. No middlegame, no openings, just endgames. Thus when I started to go to a chess club, I immediately started to get pounded in blitz matches because I didn't know any openings or basic middlegame concepts- such as how to get rid of the knight pin on f3(f6) after you castled. It just took me a lot of time for me to think about the position, so I lost every single game because of time pressure. I dediced to learn some openings, as I started to dig some middlegame books (Barraging the Barricades and How to Reasses yor Chess, also with all of Sairawan's Winning Chess series).
I started with the Italian Game as white, and Queen's Indian as black. What I ask you is: "What are the main 'plans' of these two openings?" I can surely look up some opening book to see this, but I just want to ask people who use these openings frequently.
Note: It doesn't have to be only GP and QI, you can talk about any opening, and I'll see if I can work on it
