Yes you can become a better chess player. All it takes is a bit of patience, lots of practice and loads of determination. The best thing about all of this is that it is free. Everybody is looking for a short-cut but the truth is to become a chess player you have to have a lot of the above mentioned qualities in order to succeed. Being good in chess does not only mean that you are a good player it means that you can also understand the game on its highest level. These tips are ideal even for novices and will help you become a better chess player.

1. Tactics

Studying tactics will improve your chess game faster than rote memorization of opening move variations. Studying and practicing tactics will make you win more games because your brain will begin to recognize and take opportunity of these openings. Learning to take opportunity is another benefit and your mind will begin to organize and look for opportunities automatically.

There are many chess tactics book available or you can find advice online. If you have more money to invest, pick up some software to help you study and practice. These programs will allow you to put to work what you have learned and to finish the "puzzle" and improve your chess tactics.

2. Replay Games of Better Players

One of the easiest ways of getting ahead is to study the games of better chess players. This is way chess notation was invented, to make sure that great games are not lost to posterity. The best games to watch are those that are annotated. There are also chess database you can access which will give you thousands of games to replay. Good players have a plan and purpose so watch the games slowly and try to figure out why the players made those specific moves.

For the low tech approach, there are books on game collections. The books contain games of tournaments or the collected games of specific players. Specialized chess shops are great places to scour when looking for these kinds of books.

3. Play As Often As You Can

Practice makes perfect. We can't emphasize this enough. It's also good to emphasize that there is no need to stop spending time with family and friends just to focus on chess. However if you want to improve your chess game, there's no excuse for not playing chess during your free time. If you don't have friends or family to play with then you can practice online or using a software. There are also chess apps available so you can play anywhere and anytime you have some time.

4. Record and Review Your Game

Studying chess moves and tactics should also be true for your games. By studying and recording your game you can see what you did wrong and what you can do to correct these moves. You can also see which opportunities you missed as well as study the style of your opponent.

If you can get somebody to review your games with you this is better. This post mortem will help identify strengths and weaknesses.

5. Take Chess Seriously

Take chess seriously but remember that it is not work. Chess should be treated as a serious game but it should also be fun and relaxing. Thinking of chess in a positive manner will greatly affect your game. Thinking this way will make you approach the game in a fresh way and you will find yourself finding opportunities, taking advantage of them or devising tactics more quickly and easily. The keyword here is easy. If you take it easy you will find yourself having an easier time to tackle your opponent.
