    * Better to develop a plan, even if it is not the best one, than to play reactively without a plan of your own.

    * Respect every move of your opponent, especially a Knight move

    * If there is nothing else, look for your opponent's worst piece and make sure it stays bad

  • #3

    Restricting you opponent's pieces by seizing as much space as possible and then gradually increase your control of the board. In this way your opponent is being squeezed like a boa constrictor squeezes its victims to death. 

  • #4

    check for weak squares before moving a pawn.

  • #5
    *  A good chess strategy is to Avoid Pinning the Opponent's King's Knight before He has Castled, Especially When You Have Yourself  Castled on the Kingside.

    I've never heard that one before.  What's the reasoning behind it?

  • #6

    Never over-estimate your opponent and believe that you can defeat ANYONE. 

  • #7

    Most of the rules thought to beginners are mostly applied to e4 openings.

  • #8

    Before you try to work out your own plan always consider what could be your opponent's fastest and most aggressive plans: your own thinking should be confined inside the boarders the opponent's most forcing continuations draw, if you don't want to waste your clock time on ideas which cost too many tempi for you to implement them on the board.

     

    And a particular case, when this "strategy" proves its highest degree of effectiveness:

    When there is reduced material on the board (late middlegame, early endgame) and you have obtained a winning advantage, you'll use your thinking time wisely if first of all you consider how your opponent can look for counterplay, and how you can stop him/her from finding it: once you remove all the opponent's play from the board, your winning advantage will manifest as the only thing left, and the path to victory will show as clear as possible. But be advised: doing this is much less easy than it sounds, as it often requires for you to clear your head and calm down, and to look at the position with a refreshed view, or you risk to be carried into unnecessary and dangerous complications by your own enthusiasm for the winning advantage you just obtained.

    Emmanuel Lasker put forward this obscure idea.  IIRC it is based on your opponent's possibility of going ...P-KR3...P-KN4 to chase the bishop away.  If your opponent has not castled, then he does not suffer any consequences from those pawn moves.  And if you have castled kingside, it becomes a ready made pawn storm.

    Nathalie_B are all these ideas from Emmanuel Lasker?

    1)in  a position where you have creates a weakness , try to create another weakness on the other side, which will cause the defender's task even more difficult and will ultimately lose.  

    example can be found here :

    2)before trying to go for a attack, make sure that all your pieces are placed properly to support the attack

    @nathalie You must hate the Poisoned pawn lol

  • #15

    Another interesting chess strategy is to play for good pawn structure. If your pawns are set up to promote piece mobility for your side and blockage for your opponent your game will be all the easier.

    Go to the bathroom before the start of a game.  Hard to concentrate when your body needs relief.
