Default The Psychology of Chess

Chess is not just a game of tactics and strategy. At least not
tournament playing chess. That is also about psychology.

How one reacts in a pressure situation and how well one can deal with
pressure is extremely important when we talk about tournament play in
chess.

I know of certain players who play very well in relaxed situations. In
friendly matches (with no takeback moves) and even time constraints
they place terrific chess. When it comes to tournament play however,
they get nervous. Fear of defeat makes them play below their
potential.

Dealing with the psychological conditions relating to chess is just as
important as knowing how to play chess when it comes to competing in
tournaments. After all, knowledge of chess is important but putting it
to practice when it matters is just as important.

Regards,

Chessplayer

So why do you hide your identity "Chessplayer". Is you psychology that meek
and modest?
