The best advice if not the greatest advice given to me in chess was given by no other than GM Joey in the "can we compare chess.com rating with that of fide" post.
Ι dont think so, in fide they dont use houdini.
you didnt read Gmjoeys post didnt you? hehehe.Thats the best tip ive ever been given in the Caro-kann.lol
Try to intimidate the opponent, be very arrogant, slam the clock and the pieces on the board when you move them. When you capture a piece, knock it literally to the ground, or take it and throw it far away, so that your opponent understands who he is dealing with. If done right, it will frighten the opponent and he will eventually blunder and you will win the game.
"Passed Pawns Must Be Pushed!" - Aron Nimzowitsch
I am about to sum up all of my findings about chess in my life time. I have worked long and hard at chess I what I found may change the entire nature of the game. All of this can be summed of in two immensly powerful words...
Lol, I'll keep that one in mind.
Don't choke playing chess or eating grapes.
and on guinea pigs =D
Don't eat guinea pig's hole (s), spit them out.
dont shoot smack before a tournament
a pawn is a pawn
Before each match eat alot of garlic.
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.
