How "I" Play Introduction
Since this is my first blog I felt that including this would be a good idea.
I have been playing chess for around 3 years. My FIDE is 1996 and my CFC (Canadian chess federation) rating is 1812
How one plays in different situations is a crucial aspect of tournament chess, without the ability to play with the situation on mind could mean the difference between losing and winning, it could also mean the difference between playing and enjoyable game and playing a long boring and drawn out game where one does not play the way they find most enjoyable because of the many variables.
You know the variables right? If you don't here is a simple refresher:
The Opponents rating
The color you play
How well you know your opponent
How you feel
These may or may not also be responsible for your recent chess ailments.
These variables are the main cause for chess anxiety which leads to bad choices over the chess board. This series will be based all around the way one should deal with most anxiety one receives over the board.
EDIT: Any suggestions about this series would be welcome. Just post the comment on my notes, also send me a message.
