Samuel Bak - Various Openings [1]

The Opening is the first game phase from the initial starting position with the aim to develop the minor pieces, to control the center and depending on the center pawn structure, to prepare or achieve a safe square for the king, most likely by castling.

Some programs apply special knowledge in their evaluation for this early game stage, most notably to encourage all minor pieces to develop, to prepare castling options, and to penalize too early queen development, which either hinders own minor pieces, or to become target of opponent attacks with the consequence to eventually lose some tempo.
