The management of time and resources in chess

The great masters manipulate the perception of the opposing side, attack with speed and surprise, maintaining a position of advantage, sacrificing pieces of lower value for greater value, have a better understanding of how to play a certain position, with practice they have gained greater understanding strategic.Over time can memorize many successful sequences, which run as the game progresses.

The main objective in blocking the actions of the opposing king and his pieces therefore we use different strategies that are common to each initiative of the opponent and we adjust them with different tactics according pieces used.

Chess represents teamwork, no activity will be productive if it is not the result of a joint work of all the pieces. Each piece must be integrated and supported by the others.

The opening means placing each piece in its initial job, consequently it is the shortest way to be in the ideal place that represents the ability to take up the challenge successfully. It's called board control.

The intelligence of the game tells us that in the face of unlimited responsiveness, we must create a physical barrier against unforeseen counter actions, so we block the central squares as quickly as possible.

We also fight with time control and the projection of results as the game progresses. We must constantly evaluate the indicators of positive or negative impacts of our actions.

Like all strategists, we must be attentive while maintaining calmness, but executing actions at the highest possible speed.
