9. There are rules, principles, and guidelines. Know the difference between them.

8. Knowing what you want out of the game places you ahead of many other players.

7. Even Grandmasters have problems, sometimes.

6. There is always someone who can win against you. But there is also always someone you can win against.

5. While there are times to resign, nobody ever won a resigned game.

4. Knights are cool. But they may be sacrificed for a winning goal. Every piece is that way – except the King. And everybody is gunning for the King somehow.

2. The game is what you make of it. So enjoy it!

1. In the game before you there will only be so many moves before it is done. Use them well, and love it all!

Enjoy your chess!
