Center Control,
a chess strategy to control or occupy the center and extended center of the board, which gains space and allows pieces fast access of most of the board areas, and more movement and possibilities for attack and defense. In evaluation, center control is considered by piece-square tables and by mobility, where occupancy and controls are weighted accordantly. Chess openings try to control the center while developing pieces. Hypermodern openings are those that control the center with pieces from afar, such as with a fianchetto, Classical and Modern openings control it with pawns.
