How to Play Chess : Chess Literature, Tips & Advice for Chess Players


Hi! My name is Ken and I am here today to
talk to you about playing Chess. We talked about the different parts of the game. If
you are a beginner, what is the best way to learn to play Chess. Well, some of the best
ways of course are to read books. This is a good book. It’s on Chess openings. Why is
that? Because Chess has maybe hundreds and hundreds of openings. This one has 181 openings,
variations. I talked about 3 or 4 or 5 openings here in the book. So one thing to do is to
give yourself a book on Chess. This one deals with openings but there is a book on a middle
game, book on the end game with King and the Rook. These are all things that are part of
the end game. That is one resource. The Internet is another good resource for playing Chess
because there are a lot of articles written on Chess that you can find on-line and you
could also play Chess which is a 3rd way for developing your skills. You can go into any
of these chat rooms on Yahoo, AOL. They have gaming rooms and you can play Chess. You can
come in as a novice and build up on a rating. You get rated by playing a certain amount
of games and by winning. You go all the way from being a lowly player, like a 1200 and
all the way up to a grand master, say 2200, which is you get a certain amount of points
for every game that you win. Another place to improve your skills apart from playing
with friends is to join a Chess club. There are Chess clubs in every local community and
they have matches every week, they have meetings, they play and they have tournaments. It is
always good to play tournaments as you get better and players that are better than you
and that will sharpen your skills. The idea is the more you play, the more you will learn
and basically it is a pretty fun game and it is a good way to develop your mental skills
and its a game of strategy. So I highly recommend that you take some of these additional steps
to enhance your skills and try to play as many games as possible. Again, the resources
are out there on the Internet, books, Chess Clubs, tournaments in your local area. These
things are going on all the time. Thank you.
