If you are beginner you really need to pay attention to mixture of main techniques and strategies, you need to understand how games end, professionals usually tend to look for interesting plans and news about openings and middle games, for intermediate gamers I would say go for all steps of the game, pay attention to all three steps of the game and focus all of your attention on weak spots.

8) What are the most important characteristics for achieving success in the chess?

Chess requires from player good memory, ability to recognize various templates in no time, precise strategic thinking, passion for the game and ability to handle stressful situations.

9) What is the best practice for preparing for tournament?

Firs of all figure out your weak spots and work on fixing them. Sometime problem is associated with personal health. Sometimes lack of motivation is the issue. If you feel exhausted and tired from chess I would suggest your to get couple of days off, I bet it will really help you and you will find inspiration once again. If you haven’t played for a while you could try couple of training games or you can go for blitz, it will definitely help your to get in the shape. Try different things to find the most suitable way for you.

10) I am ordinary chess players, but I am really interested in getting on tournament, what should I do?
First of all make sure that you are aware of tournament rules.

On random games, we tend to talk, we don’t keep track of moves nor time, we ignore various rules such as touching your figures, moving them, etc. Chess tournaments are completely different from random games, it is hard to explain whole process with words, in order to get better idea I would suggest you to visit official event and see everything for yourself.

Another important thing is to resolve various tactics on daily basis, you really need to work on your skills on daily basis if you want to improve yourself. I know I have said it numerous times before, but once again – pay attention to your weak spots, this is essential! In case of going on tournament, make sure that your current level is suitable for the event, don’t go for easy ones.


  1. These traps ONLY work against real amatures

  2. Ive been doing stuff like this everytime i play chess thinking i was genius only to find its already a thing

  3. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  4. Before g6 bishop move to c4 check too also good move

  5. Knight f6 is a losing move instead play knight d4 witch is know as birds defense or pawn a6

  6. Π° Ссли Π±Π΅Π»ΠΎΠΉ пСшкой Π½Π° g3 ΠΏΠΎΠΉΡ‚ΠΈ,Π° Π½Π΅ Π½Π° h3???

  7. knight h2. and both dont have knight haha

  8. I love this shorts. Gj on showing attacks and defenses, thank you for sharing.

  9. Oh bhaaaaaii….πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

  10. It doesn't work if white do not accept it immediately. Simple d3 would refute it. Or c3 then d4

  11. What if the night go to h2, its not a checkmate

  12. knight to E1 was mistaken plus the pon should not be moved.
    if the D line was opened the whole trap would gone wrong with a good chance to capture the opponent's Queen

  13. Instead of moving the knight to e1 it more safe to movevthe pawn to g3 preventing the queen to h4…if pawn takes the knight the queen capture the pawn.

  14. isnt this a draw tho? cuz the king isnt on checkmate

  15. This is draw, the white is Weber half wening

  16. Why does opponent play h3 in first place?

  17. That's silly, white doesn't need to play h3. It won't work on anyone who knows the ruy Lopez

  18. i dont think anyone will undevelop their knight ☺

  19. copado truco …prometo hacer caer alguno/a con el!:).
