#1 KING SAFETY COMES FIRST,   Everything Else Comes Second

  • Avoid leaving any hole in your position
  • Never castle unless absolutely necessary
  • Put your queen close to your king

#2: COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY

  • What pieces do you need?
  • Are you attacking or defending?
  • Should I trade queens?

Sometimes pieces exchange can hurt or even checkmate your partner, that’s why you must often take a quick look at your partner's board.

#3: INIATIVE IS VERY IMPORTANT

  • A common saying is "As long as he's in check, I'm winning".
  • Attacking is much easier than defending, the one who gets an attack is much more likely to win.
  • In bughouse, you shouldn’t instant recapture especially if you have a full set of pieces in your hand, use the tempo you have and create a threat to the king.

#4: TIME MANAGEMENT

Being up on time is crucial in bughouse to have more control over the coming trades and decisions on the board. Why?

Because a partner can sit and wait for a piece. If you can just wait a few moments for your partner to get you the right pieces, you may win the game very quickly.
