My next tip

A combination of talent, skills and knowledge of Chess Openings will lead you

to a masters level if you are serious about playing chess.

Takon's tip of the day: Take out that old chess board that's gathering dust in a cupboard and play out your matches on that. Some of the games I've won are only because I've played out the next 20 possible moves on a real board before making my move. (Note: Please do not use this tactic while playing me laugh.gif )

I haven't won a game in or outside of the chess tourney... Man, do I ever suck. crying.gif

Is it illegal to look up chess moves or strategies during the tourney?

I would think so. I haven't although I suck at chess. I've only won twice, against saRa.

You can do anything so long as the moves you make are from your own head. You can look up general strategies in a book for example, but you can't use a computer program to work out what to move next, or ask someone else to play the game for you.

Or you can use the pop up link on RHP that says Analyse Board.

You agreed not to use chess software when you sign up on RHP.

And by analysing your former games, someone will know that you are using

chess programs because some people knows what a Grandmaster move is.

That's why i don't wanna play longer chess because they might use it against me.

At least if i play 10 minutes chess they will run out of time looking for the next move. And what's the point of using chess software ?

Losing in chess is learning.

No, as I explained to Saru, their Analyse board is rubbish. There is no substitute for the real thing.

He didn't say he was using software, he asked about books. Which arn't cheating as they can only propose good tactics, not implement good moves in the actual game.

I find the analyse board very convenient. It's how it suits you.

Almost all chess beginners use the actual board while the older chess

player got use to black and white board. If you displaced one piece on the actual board while analysing it, you'll be in trouble.

And how! Gotta be really careful!

I didn't have a chess set, so I went and bought a cheap one. I got one that's too cheap! sad.gif The pieces are so tiny I can't tell the bishops from the pawns, nor the queen from the rooks! I do think it's helped a little, though. Only now I'm gonna have to spring for a bigger chess set!

When I saw that opening I thought there must be a trick to it! :-D

I still don't know exactly how to play out the end game, though. hmm.gif

(Don't feel too bad, Tal! I didn't actually capture your queen. I just bribed her with leftover Easter candy and she defected. <G>)
