Originally posted by Chessboy90If you aren't ready to dive in, go to the Tournaments tab and watch some games. You can bookmark them and follow them from day to day. Pick one of them where there are frequent moves required. You can pick a game from the tournament's chart and use the back up arrow to get to its beginning and see how most people play to get their pieces developed and their king protected, and if you come across an end game, you can guess at how the mate will be delivered. In fact when you open up a tournament chart you can pick completed games and see how they ended.
I am new to chess and just learned the rules on Wiki.
How can I improve except playing games here?
Thanks in forward

Thank you for your thoughtful advice. At least you didn't offer cynical destructive advice, like sending him to some clan filled with corrupt sandbagging engine using cheats, or worse.

Please tell us all so we can avoid the clan you speak of as well.
