Hi there friends! Hope you are winning more games, and if you did win games, good for you,well done! However if you are on the track of losing games, well some would suggest to learn with new tactics or openings. Though, in practice that is not applicable at all times, and why? simple, chess is a mind game, and there are several factors that will help you to win games without memorizing or practicing special openings. The secret is simple, if you really want to win the game, do the "Mental Chess". Your opponent is human too, right? well, except for those players using machines or chess program. Anyway, we will not discuss those things, what I am trying to tell you is that the key to win the game is to create "Extreme Pressure" to your opponents. How? let your chess materials get closer to the weak side of the defense of your opponent, and that is usually the area where the king is located, and always remember to use the basic knowledge of skewer, pin, etc., and one more thing, "locate the key piece of your opponent" sometimes your opponent has a favorite material/s and it could be either a Knight, Rook, Bishop, or it could be a combination of the aforementioned. Don't be afraid to sacrifice a rook for a pawn specially if that pawn is the key of the tactic of your opponent. If you want to see, how to do this, just watch the game! enjoy! :) Have fun!!!
