Prerequisites in Chess

In addition to the acquisition of knowledge of the intricacies of Chess, a player should be well rested with adequate sleep, consume healthy food in moderation and drink plenty of water, during the tournament days, for effective function of the brain.


Failing these steps is like walking intentionally towards failure.

Losing in Chess

Losing is hard; that holds true for any competition/game including Chess. What matters is what you take away from your loss.


Remember, "To win is not always success; to lose is not always failure".

Patience in Chess

Patience is vital in Chess.


When you are playing defensive, you just have to wait patiently for your opportunity to arrive. When it does, just utilize it. Thus Patience pays off.

Passivity in Chess

In Chess, having a passive position is not the same as having a lost position.


As long as you can defend, it is worth playing. No one knows when the fate might twist.
