1. Playing frequently

Practice is one of the pillars of progress in chess. Formerly there could be some excuse for this (places where there was no chess club, places where there were no championships) but today, with Internet, it is easy to play chess at any time of the day < PlayChess , ICC , Buho21, chessok flyordie, yahoo games and even facebook are some of the

It is important to know that slower paced play rhythms are best suited for practice in case we want them to play These items are useful for progress. Playing games at 1 minute on the Internet does not add much to the player. I recommend playing games at game rhythms from 10 minutes per player.

Of course, competing in face-to-face tournaments is another priority . The intensity with which these games are played is often different from the one we put in when we are at home in front of the computer . Although it is not mandatory, it is recommended to note the quick games played in the tournaments , at least until the clock is short (eg 5 minutes), so that you can check them later.

2. Analyze the games that are played.

The first analysis of a game played in a tournament, is with our opponent (provided he lends it), just after that match . The ideas are fresh and we can draw some important conclusions when listening or discussing the ideas or intentions of our rival.

The second analysis we must do is alone, in front of the board, / B>. In this task we can write down variants or ideas that occur to us.

Only once we have done the previous task can we help the computer , checking the theory of openings in our (Also in books, of course) and checking the suggestions of the analysis modules.

From all this work we should be able to draw conclusions: in Which phase of the game we make the most mistakes (there are players, for example, very strong in the opening or in the half game, but quite weak in the finals.) Be aware of the phase of the game where we make more mistakes Gives us an idea of ​​the terrain on which we must insist more on our study), what kind of mistakes we make most frequently : they can be tactical (for calculating variants or for ignoring matte figures or combinations ) Or strategic (errors of concept for not understanding the position and not knowing how to find the pla N correct). An important task is to look for certain patterns in our mistakes (excessive prophylactic plays, problems of coordination of the pieces, tendency to weaken the king's position, etc.). In this last point, the help of a stronger player (if possible with experience in teaching) who reveals the essence of our mistakes is especially useful to us.

Reds, Mariposa Grizzlies split two-game series - The West Side Index & Gustine Press-Standard: Prep Sports
Mariposa, which had lost just once In league play, appeared to be cruising until the Reds found their stride at the plate. But the 9-8 lead lasted only until The top of the fifth, when Mariposa struck for two runs to regain the edge.

3. See masterpieces.

If we learn the basic options of the ChessBase program we will be able to work with these items and thus: a) check the opening theory of the items that interest us most; B) look for items in which the same pawn structure is reached and, thus, become familiar with the typical plans of those positions; C) learn typical combinations and frequent tactical shots against weak castles or positions where the enemy king is in the center; D) expand our knowledge and arsenal of endings.

4. Getting good teaching materials.

Many players are quite lost in getting good material for progress. When it comes to buying a chess book it is a good idea to have some guidance about the author and the content of the publication. And it is not enough to know that the book is good, but we must be sure that the work is destined to the level that we want.

In this sense it is good to be advised by Club mates, monitors or stores we trust. In this blog they have already recommended some publications and will continue to do so in the future.

Also on the internet you can get material for our progress. In fact there are countless blogs and articles intended for that over the net. In addition to YouTube you can find tutorials or see masterpieces.

Magazines like Check or Pawn of King also contain many articles of interest, commented games, exercises, etc.

5. Receive chess classes.

Not everyone can afford private tutoring, but it is always important to be informed of the courses that are available in the various chess clubs and federations that exist in Our place of residence.

But of course, above all the above points, to progress is essential to feel the true passion for the game of chess. With enthusiasm, interest and dedication we have gained much of the battle.
