    Depends on who your friend is. Are you living in Vienna?

    Record the games and post them here for analysis.

    Develop quickly, following basic beginners' rules (don't move twice in opening, etc).

    Every time it's your move, look at every possible move he could make to see if he could take something en prise. That is one of the most important things...it's basically the first step in tactical analysis I think, and lots of beginners make it.

    Back in the 1990's one of my best friends was getting married, and we went to our usual hangout to drink and play chess. Since it was going to be his last night as a bachelor chess player after years of our weekly chugging and clock slapping, I kept ordering tequila shots after every game (we played fast). After 6 or so, he asked my how he could be so buzzed, and I seemed normal.

    It was then that I told him that I arranged with the bartender to make sure mine were just water, as I was the driver.

    Get your licks in whenever you can!
