I've had a few requests recently for tips on how to improve your chess playing ability and start notching up those extra points. I'm happy to oblige and think it's a great idea for a series of posts.
I'll write one tip per week targeted at the club or casual player who'd love to get their rating up, or maybe just bag a point or two against the 'chess master' down at the park.
The post schedule: I'll post a chess improvement tip each Saturday, and a chess puzzle on Fridays. Other days will be the usual mix of reminisces, opening commentary, news snippets, player profiles and visits to the attic.
Let me have your thoughts and topics you'd like to see addressed.
