My high school is hosting a tournament this year and so far it seem like I'm standing pretty well, other people have been saying I have the highest rating in the school having around 1580. But I'm worried that won't be enough. So what are some good advice leading up to the tournament? e.g. What should I study?
Sorry I didn't get back with you in time. I think most of the higher rated players would say tactics. I consider them like stretching before a tennis match
