50 ( +1 | -1 ) av8bndiace02You have a good record, 12 wins!! I have helped davism improve quite a bit. You can ask him and he might be able to redirect some of my tips ;) Sorry, but I am very busy at the moment, but would be glad to help after the 27th of this month. Good luck till then!
53 ( +1 | -1 ) Fundamentals and basicsThe difference between the people on Gameknot and your average hacker is that here, people understand the basics. Fight for the middle of the board. Develop your pieces. Outnumber your opponent on key squares. Keep your guys covered. Look a couple of moves ahead.
Any good book can help you with the basics. Without them, you'll never get very good. With them, you can hold your own against quite a few.
Remember, you can learn chess in a few minutes. But you cannot master it in a lifetime.
