    Haha. Or smoke crack either I suppose. Or get drunk. I haven't followed that particular bit of advice, however. Been drunk a few games.

    Another one of my favorite advice which I heard from Josh Waitzkin is, "Don't forget the space you leave behind".

    Always use your brain, otherwise you will lose. I have not done this many times, and lost.

    Also, good point mentioned above. I try not to see my opponents rating before I play. I wish TD's wouldn't keep putting them next to all the names on the pairing charts.

    Don't underestimate the endgame knowledge (or the speed) of 10 year old chess players.  Been there.  Done that.
