4 NW 4 NE 4 SW 4 SE Good to Fredthebear
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

There are four phases of a typical chess game:
1) Opening (Focus on rapid piece development and central control) 2) Middle game (Focus on tactics and strategy)
3) Endgame (Focus on promoting a pawn and checkmate w/the new queen) 4) Excuses (Keep telling yourself you should have won if...) Please be a good sport, win, lose or draw. Calm and quiet will suffice. A friendly chat afterward might make you a new friend, especially if an egoless person understands the art of a compliment, encouragement. Actually, a brief introductory chat before the clocks start is peaceful and inviting; it goes a long way to defeat the hardened isolationism of competition. The two of you will continue to mix in the same chess circles, so why not be friendly?

After all, if those who lose don't return to future tournaments, there won't be many left at future tournaments! We all need future opponents. More players mean better quality, better matchups. So please, be a good sport, win, lose or draw.
