Thank you for visiting the MyChessSite. Are you looking for free chess downloads, or free online chess? Then this is the place to be! But we also offer a lot more for chess players all over the world.
We all aim to get better at playing chess and to achieve the one game that we will be remembered by. In doing so, we develop our own style and technique. My style is to be a positive, aggressive player. I play to win and believe that attack is the best form of defence. I will use this site to describe some of my preferred moves and strategies.
So here’s how to become a stronger chess player:
Improve your visualisation skills, so you will learn to see ahead and predict your opponent’s next moves.
Learn to hide your intent, so your opponent cannot easily predict your strategy.
Improve your knowledge of popular chess openings, to gain a strong position early on.
Focus your attention on those positions causing difficulties.
Easier said than done? Perhaps so. But the articles on this site are designed to help with all of the above! Concentrating on these basic areas has helped my game tremendously and I hope it can do the same for you as well.
The Internet has revolutionized many aspects of our life, and none more so than game play. Some may argue that in some ways those changes are not always for the better, but in this case I feel it has had a very positive effect for all types of gamers. Chess is just one of thousands of games which are now available to play online, which simply presents more varied and plentiful opportunities to play, and a vast choice of opponents to play against.
In this site I will also recommend the best places to play online chess, including those where I personally play. Maybe we will go face to face for a game at some time?
