    First, read this page!

    Next, understand it! Once you do, you will begin to win!

    Also, after you learn these basics... you will need to learn some basic opens!!!!

    Enjoy!

    P-

    Have a chess board set up, and do all the reading, and study it... take your time, absorb it!

    The best way to improve is to play stronger opponents whenever you can. Keep a record of your games,and go over them regularly,especially the losses. Learn to spot recurring patterns,both good and bad. Study the endgame,the most important part of the game.

    Hi Knight77,

    Everyone here has given good advice so I'll just add this: Learn Tactics. The site Phlabibit gave you is a great place to start.

    Learn tactics and look for them on the board before every move. Look for ways to attack with them and ways to defend against them. Most blunders consist of simply overlooking tactics.
