TO MY STUDENTS

To those who are taking part in the coming National Schools' individuals, here's my advice:

1  Review all opening lines that you have been taught. 

2. Sleep early on 15th Tuesday night 

3  Record your games 

4  Think about your opponent's last move: Is it a threat? 

5  Look for checks, captures, threats (yours when it is your move, your opponents' when they are thinking)

6  Keep it simple

7  Concentrate very hard between moves 12-30

8  Do not exchange pieces/pawns without any reason

9  Do not be 10 minutes behind your opponent on the clock

10 FIGHT TO THE LAST - DO NOT GIVE UP!
