    One of the best tips i ever heard is what they call the "secret to chess."
    After your opponent makes a move before u do anything else have a look at what squares that move just left behind. It could be quite a significant hole in their position that you can exploit.

    I remember watching Josh Waitzkin's lectures on Chess master, after every move he'd say, 'Now, what has he left behind'. I find myself saying that to my students a lot. I also get them to play tic-tac-toe without paper.

    Play the King's gambit
    A very boreded LolCat invented chess three thousand years ago on the 8th day of creation, after creating the Urfs and da skies.
