question: how can I improve my patience and focus.
this is my big problem.


Do Kotov's exercises in "Think Like a Grandmaster"

"In each chapter he uses games from the likes of Botvinnik, Tal, Smyslov, Petrosian, Keres, Bronstein and himself to help the reader understand the way a grand master will collect his thoughts throughout a game."

"In the opening chapters of the book he teaches us about analysis of a game and how to create an analysis tree. Moving on he teaches us how the selection of moves will have an effect on the position and what is important in the selection through the voices of the former World Champions."

Develop your minor pieces early...that's a basic chess strategy.

impose your gameplan on your opponent let them play your type of game. as for me i love end game so im more inclined to have small advantage or equal exchanges to gain favorable position because my principle is simple " less piece are there on the board the better " for me its easier to think and execute a gameplan if the board is clear already.

2 rooks are better than queen
break the pawn flank
use your king on the offensive

here are some of the basic strategies i've found very useful....

Opening principles..

-mobilize your piece
-move your knight before your bishop
-do not move the same piece twice
-castle early

Middle Game Principle..

-carefully analyze when moving a pawn, you can't move your pawn backwards
-put your rook on an open file or semi-open
-when you're attacking do not exchange pieces and vice versa, if you're being attacked, exchange pieces
-if you are substantially ahead of material, exchange pieces and try bring the game into end game and vice versa


All throughout the game..

-look at your opponents move and ask yourself why he move that way..
-before you move always look at what squares you left behind..
-find your opponents weakness and capitalize on it

Here is a basic rook ending, this is called the Lucena Position. Understanding this endgame is essential for the study of more complex rook endgames.

Picking my nose while my opponent is contemplating his next move works for me all the time unless I'm playing on line.

hey guys,

whenever you are playing the black pieces and the opponent offers a king or queen's gambit, do you accept or decline it? and why?

most of the time i decline queens gambit because i want to maintain the tension of having exchanges in the middle..

but for king's gambit, i always accept it.. i firmly believe that king's gambit is a weak opening and accepting it will make it weaker..
