My experience

Lessons Learnt

  1. The game is over once it is over.
    • After losing my queen or most of my pieces, I've noticed that my opponents need more confidence, move their pieces faster, and make mistakes.
    • In one game, I only had the king left, while my opponent had a queen and a rook. Despite their advantage, the game ended in a draw because I had no available moves.
  2. Whenever there is a chance of check and you are uncertain whether will it be checkmate, always proceed.
    • People get anxious in check and move pieces without thinking.
  3. Always save your pieces.
    • Do not play kamikaze style. If your piece can safely return to a spot, then do it. Give it another chance to attack.
