Some Points to Remember During the Game of Chess

Amithpal S.
22 Feb 0 0

Points to remember:

  • Talk to yourself and ask after every move of your opponent- am I getting anything?
  • Play slow; if you play fast, the chances of doing mistakes and blunders are more.
  • Follow opening principles - it's very, very important.
  • Try to develop your knights before bishops.
  • Why? Why did your opponent play the last move? Whenever the king in the centre - open the centre.
  • Whenever your e file is open, try to castle asap. 90% of the time, two minor pieces are greater than a rook & pawn.
  • Pin and win - whenever you get a chance to pin, do a pin.
  • Bishops are powerful than knights.
  • Dont exchange with undeveloped pieces.
  • Whenever you are material up, exchange the pieces.
  • Dont play unnecessary pawn moves
  • Dont play h3/h6/a3/a6 unnecessarily.
  • Knight on the rim is dim.
  • .It's always better if pawns support pawns. 
  • The attack is the best defence -> counter-attack.
  • D4 d5 bf4 variation or normal d4 lines. Don't follow d5 with nc6. Try to get c5 so that your queen has an open diagonal (d8-a5)
  • Every pawn move creates weakness.
  • Don't help your opponent by opening his files for the rooks, especially bxb3(a file), bxg3(h file), bxg6(h file), bxb6(a file)
  • Don't trade centre pawns with corner pawns.
  • In ending, first, activate your king. Dont move the pawns in front of your king; this will open and weaken your king, and the opponent will have an excellent opportunity to attack.
  • Whenever you are ahead in development and attacking, dont exchange the pieces, especially the queen.
  • Whenever you have passed pawn in ending, go for advancing it.
  • Whenever you get the chance, provoke weakness and take advantage.
  • Pawns can restrict knights. Nb3 ->b6, ng3 ->g6, ng6->g3
  • It's better to stop passed pawns with knights in the middle game especially.
  • Other than developing your pieces, whenever you get a chance to restrict opponent development.

There are two types of positions: Static(tortoise) & dynamic (rabbit)

Timing: lot no time

Improve the pieces play very sharp, attack, sacrifices. Its always better to play a move with multiple ideas than a single idea.
