    Rule #1 is when there is no plan, make sure you develope your pieces and continue to develope them, putting them on their best squares...it's hard to develope a plan if you are not developed and your pieces cannot coordinate together. As you complete your development, especially if you are ahead in development, this should lead you to a plan. In Nimzo, don't take Knight on C3 unless white does a3... 19. Qg5? Was a mistake...When sacrificing a pawn make sure you get compensation in the form of a counterattack, added activity or control of a strong square! When arriving at Q vs. two rooks, stop the passed pawn before it can make any progress...If you wait too long there will be no stopping it. Also getting behind the pawn can be another way of stopping it...Second game, Scotch Gambit focus on how to capitalize on the f7 square...11.Ng5 was the move...When the Q develops early in the opening see if and how you can trap her...
