I would like to get advice. I will play my first chess tournament on monday (90 minutes, I dont know if it has time control or if all 90 minutes games have time control), but I have no idea what opening to play. I would like to play someting solid for white and also for black. My problem is that my positional chess is not that good ( I would have loved to try the evan`s gambit but I would need a lot of help and i just have a week). The tournament is 1600-. Can someone help me how to manage my time and what openings should i choose considering the rating of the people (Btw my online rating is around 1670 and my tactics rating is like 1850 so maybe tactics are my strong part)? Thanks you :]
thanks you. You are totally right. I cannot expect tactics to appear if i dont have positional thanks you i will have it in mind when i play
