Secret of Success in Chess

In Chess, one should be able to think and analyse for both sides.

Not only should you plan for yourself, but also pay attention to your opponent's plans.

Paraphrasing Henry Ford liberally, to arrive at something relatable to Chess,
"The Secret of Success lies in the ability to see your opponent's plans as clearly as your own."

Analysis in Chess

In Chess, Analysis is the Key. How deep and wide one can analyse on the board sets apart the Master from the Amateur.

"Playing sharp variations, in middle game, without deep, thorough analysis is like fighting Lord Voldemort blindfolded."

Sacrifices in Chess

In Chess, Sacrifices are integral and intriguing; but are also dangerous.
As interesting as a good sacrifice can be, equally unattractive is a bad one.

"Be vigilant when you sacrifice, for the very act might pave way for your fall."
