Fear or worrying.

What is best idea you know in chess.

Attack with surprising ferocity and freak the other player out or else constantly attack his or her queen if he or she decides to throw it out early wasting the time of the other opponent and also often they make a blunder and lose the queen.

In general, freak the player out by strong attack, pretending that I know what I am doing.
