    Don't be nervous, and play good chess.

    If you want tips on what to do before the tourney, read this thread.

    be patient. after you make a descision on a move dont touch the chess piece. take a second look at what your opponent will do next. this will help a lot. dont worry about the clock if you have 30 minutes on the clock in an endgame and your opponent has 5 minutes left on his clock with a winning endgame what good does time do you. dont ask for their rating until after the game. this way you dont take the game too lightly and if its a higher rated player do not expect to take a loss from it. good luck.

    Just take it easy, look carefully at what the pieces are doing on the board and enjoy. Good luck !
