I dropped my queen vs. Iris Zhang in the Women's Championship, won the game and tied for first in the event. Don't give up too easily.

Not to mention that insane win vs. Brian Lee...

I absolutely second Mary's advice. Also the same advice goes if you realize you've made a mistake. Making a few quick moves is more likely to get you in further trouble, so sit on your hands and figure out what's best under the circumstances. This has saved me many times from desperate positions.

My single biggest piece of advice is, if your opponent makes a move that surprises or scares you, sit on your hands for a bit and think--don't respond too fast. (I literally sat on my hands in the State Championship, after almost moving into a K+Q fork--the kid I was playing was amused, but it worked.)

Have you played with clock and scoresheet before? If not, try to get some practice. The first time you use these they will be distracting so you don't want that during the tournament.

Hello everyone,                             This is Abhay Sankar and as most of you guys know I will be hosting tournament every week if not daily! The tournaments will be hosted through this club!! It would mean a lot to me if you guys participated. Though until summer ends, I have a specific schedule per say, where different types of variants and time controls will be hosted throughout the week. I am sorry if I forget to post a tournament or anything, but please send me a message if I do! ...
