    No i am not trust me.

    Stats mean nothing when the game starts. Why compare yourself to anybody that will only limit your ability to improve.

    He brought up a draw. I say talk about winning and never mention draw. He talks about the possibility to lose if you do not know. "If you don't know how to convert the win "  I play many games over the years and eat these type of players up. Players wonder why they lost and have read every book from dusk to dawn and they did not look into their mental state. Already before they sat the table. In his case before he vistit a site. He looks at the rank and the percentage of that rank and i bet fear enters his heart.

    And he talks about King and Pawn vs King. He is all over the place. First lets start about this draw thing. Rook pawns do not Queen in this case unless the opponent blunders. Now if the player wants to queen the pawn the King has to control the path of the pawn. But that is not going to help the OP much as he wants to know about openings.

    He is all over the place as he compares A to B, A to C, A to D, B to C, C to D and etc.

    I don't want to know JUST about openings though, that's just one thing I need to work on. So far I've gotten suggestions to focus on the opening principles, evaluate moves I otherwise would t make to find and set up tactics, study tactics, review GM games with annotations, and study different endgame situations. Any other suggestions? Thanks again everybody, you've been beyond helpful.

    Your just starting out. As you learn the above you will know exactly what else you need to learn. Their are more advanced methods but until you feel comfortable with the basics it will sound like bla bla bla to your ears or you have problems rememering how to use it in a game.

    2 most common mistakes made in a game at all levels. Take your time and evaluate correctly what your opponent is doing/ looking why did they make their last move? It may look innocent and be nothing but double check.
