3 strategies that will beat a beginner every time

post3

Chess is a game where you need to apply tactics and strategies.  If you play well in three stages of the game, then you will beat a beginner every time. If you are a newbie, then I suggest you check out this chess strategy for beginners, there are also a ton of other resources online as you start climbing the ladder. But, at the core of chess, you only need to follow these three rules.

The beginning

During this phase, you bring out your armies for starting the combat. You must look out for the opponent’s moves. You must try to defend the opponent’s threat. If you can find out what the opponent’s strategy is then you will win the game easily. Make the best possible move. Even if a move earns you lots of points, it may not be a good move. Make a plan on your head how you are going to attack the opponent. Make your plan such that the opponent cannot guess what your next move will be.

The middle game

At this stage of the game, players carry out attacks and counterattacks. Move the players of the game; not only the pawns. The sooner you plan for attack the better. Bring out your knights, rooks, queen and bishops. Make sure these players are not attacked by the opponent’s pawns. Don’t bring out your queen too early. Try to control the four squares at the center of the board. That way you will have a better chance of winning. You should keep the king safe at this point.

The end game

At this stage, you bring out the king to finish the game. Bishops can take a stronger position towards the end of the game. So, try to save your bishop throughout the game. Hang on to pawns as they become queen towards the end of the game. You have to be very alert always. Don’t be too excited even if you are in a better position. The opponent can still strike you at anytime.

Follow these strategies and you will win against a beginner all the time. Don’t rush into your moves; plan each move carefully.

4 tips to becoming a better chess player

post1

In order to be good at playing chess, you need to learn lots of things and practice a lot. Here are 4 tips that can make you a better chess player.

Learn the moves

Each piece of chess has a certain way of moving. Learn the moves by heart. Try to open with Pawn. This opens ways for your queen and bishops to enter the game. If the pawns don’t move, then they can’t get out. Before moving your queen, king or rooks, move the bishops and knights to the center of your chess board.

Watch your back

Think about what your opponent’s last move was. Was he laying traps? Then decide on your own move. Look around for all kinds of possibilities. Try to find moves to capture your opponents or attack the king. Double check your moves, always! This will reduce the chance of mistakes.

Castle early

This means moving your king to a safe place and start playing with your rooks. If your opponent doesn’t notice the castle then you can attack his king.

Be open to criticism

When analyzing your game, listen to your coach. Don’t try to defend your moves; instead, accept the different perspectives that the coach is giving you and learn from it.

You should take advice from chess players who are better than you. You should be patient and keep on practicing. You should wisely lose your points; don’t make any quick decisions. Stay calm during the whole game and focus. With good concentration and thoughtful moves, you will increase the chance of winning the match.
