Hi every one i read a book called 55 steps to chess success one time but unfortunatly i didnt write the authers name all i remember is he was a master, anyway here is what the steps were in a nutshell....
Step 1:- Never underestimate the weaknesses of pawns or pieces at the edge of the board!.
Step 2:- Make sure your pinning can't be counter pinnied.
Step 3:- When u have analyized a position as deeply as u can try to go abit deeper.
Step 4:- Remember that the pieces that seem immobile can sometimes be moved after a preliminary maneuver.
Step 5:- When things are going well against a strong opponant be especialy vigilant and check all tactics carefully.
Step 6:- Study and learn all mating positions even those that seem to be rare or improbable.
Step 7:- Take care to keep your centre strong untill after u castle.
Step 8:- Remember that meterial advantage is only one part of the game.
Step 9:- Keep in mind that when u open up the game your opponant has more mobility too.
Step 10:- Sieze the moment!.
Step 11:- A win is more important then a brilliancy prize!.
Step 12:- Failure to castle is often a captital offense and your king may lose his head as a result!.
Step 13:- Make sure u r prepared for all reasonable replies to the first few moves of the game!.
Step 14:- If u are going to play popular lines which have been analyzed deeply make sure u evaluate the final positions with special care if they are considered " Unclear".
Step 15:- If u find a good new opening move when preparing a opening backtrack to consider options for your opponent who may well have discovered "your' new move first!.
Step 16:- Avoid unsound openings in serious games.
Step 17:- Stick to the move orders u know because behind every transposition there may lie a trap!.
Step 18:- Don't play the...d5 break untill u have castle unless u are absolutely sure it is safe.
Step 19:- If u think that it makes no difference which of the 2 move orders are used think again.
Step 20:- Even if u have used up most of your energy developing an attack work as hard at the end as u did at the beginning.
Step:- 21:- Even when u r just trying to escape be on the lookout for chances to win.
Step 22:- Avoid cheap tactics! Just because your opponent has made a mistake doesn't mean that another one is likely.
Step 23:- Don't get so wrapped up in one line that u neglect resources available elsewhere.
Step 24:- If u have a choice between inflicting structural damage with the exchange or setting up tactical possibilities the former is usually the better choice.
Step 25:- A weak pawn need not be captured right away.
