    Eat a healthy breakfast! Not too much though - don't wan't stomach aches in the middle of a game. Taking a light jog before you get ready to go is also good to get your mind focussed. Whenever you're otb and feeling uncomfortable about your position stop, take a deep breath and start analysis over. (Watch that clock though) Another thing to be ready for is clock orientation. Take note of what each hand will do based on whether the clock is too your left or right so moving pieces can be as efficient as possible. Lastly remember that the game is on the board so don't worry abou who is across from you - do your thing and you'll be all the better for it.

    Think before you move. Don't worry about your time.

    Bring a chess board for practice between games.

    In a difficult position, analyse the position, then find the best move.

    If you're nervous, take a deep breath and say to yourself "I will win this"

    Chess equivalent of hiding an ace in your sleeve in poker.

    Don't ever play for a draw. What I've realized is that once I go for a draw, I start making bad moves when I might have still had a chance. Just play seriously and take the draw, if you want, only if the situation presents itself.
