10 Basic Strategic TIPS for Beginners How to Play #4PlayerChess
.
Tip 01. Never ever allow your left (west side) opponent to check you EVEN if he or she could lose 2 points by swapping his or her Bishop (5 points) for your Knight (3 points). If you could have prevented a check coming from your left (west side) opponent you know the difference fast enough wink.png ... Be hyper alert what your LEFT SIDE player is doing!
.
Tip 02. Look at who the strongest rated player is and try not to attack him or her too early ... if you do ... he or she may decide to focus mainly on you to get revenge! I have experienced that so many times it is not funny anymore.
.
Tip 03. Change settings how high the minimum rating is of your (future) opponents will be (I want to play with opponents who are 50 up to 150 points stronger than me) ... in that way you will not lose many points when you are last or 3rd ... but gain so much if you are 2nd or 1st!
.
Tip 04. Even if you are in the weakest position with no more chance of having any meaningful effect ... can also mean they (all other 3) temporary ignore you because they know others are more likely to be dangerous to them ... so they fight each-other faster than attacking you. Some (!) are so insecure that they attack weaker players just because they can ... but forgetting the other 2 crushing him or her in the process ... so those who attack only the weaker ones WILL get attacked by 2 stronger ones ... like Karma tongue.png I KNOW that it is possible that the weakest can become the strongest at the end due to heavy fighting between the strongest players ... you only need 1 promotion of a pawn all of sudden the tide is turning in your favor ... about 1 out of 5 (of being in weakest position) changed in to being 2nd or even winning the game! So 20% chance you still can win the game even if you are the weakest depending how heavy the fight is between stronger players.
.
Tip 05. Avoid (prevent) at all costs swapping your Bishop or Queen or Knight in early stage ... you only make 1 opponent and yourself weaker the other 2 are laughing at you that you make it easier for them to attack you!
.
Tip 06. Sacrificing your Knight to take (capture) a promoted opponent Pawn (1 point only for your 3 points worth Knight) is most of the time necessary (!) ... unless you can predict the "Promoted Pawn" will attack other opponents that works in your advantage/favor ... to see that possibility you must have a form of "chess-intuition" like a "6th sense" but that is something nobody can teach you ... you have it or you do not have it.
.
Tip 07. If possible use both 2 Knights to surround (protect) your King closely ... 95% chance they leave you alone because other opponent Kings are more attractive to attack wink.png ... and I speak from experience played over 500 times ... Just think in reverse: what would you do if you see 1 of the 3 opponent being heavily defended by 2 Close-by Knights? You probably avoid going there ... that is the whole point of having a good defense: NOT BEING ATTRACTIVE for others to attack you! ... too much trouble for them.
.
Tip 08. Be always prepared that the player at the North Side checks your left East Side opponent ... if you can see that coming FREE your Bishop in advance (by moving 1 or 2 pawns who are blocking your Bishop) ... I did that many times I could attack left East-side player's Queen after he/she is "checked" by the North-side player! ... This can only be fruitful for you if you prepare for such event (possibility) in advance.
.
Tip 09. If you see some one is heavily working together with a 2nd Player to beat the 3rd player ... you MAY have to offer help to the 3rd player ... Why? ... because those same 2 players will eventually team up crushing you too! ... Officially it is "not done" to "team up" but if it is soooo obvious that 2 are working together bash 1 other player you can predict they will do that to you as well! ... I screen-capture-record every 4playerchess game I play so that if I am accused of "teaming up" with some one, I can SHOW THEM PROOF that i have a good reason to do so!
.
Tip 10. Have you ever had that moment that you see 1 of the 3 opponents just quits (maybe lost WiFi connection) ... and there you see a naked King ready to be captured giving you 20 easy points! ... If you are always prepared that this CAN happen ... you can move your Knight or Bishop in fastest way possible to capture that defenseless opponent's King ... if you are NOT prepared for that possibility you will probably complain that some one else get 20 easy points lol
