How do you progress in winning a higher percentage of chess games than you used to win? Quality practice—that gives you the result you need. What should you practice?
- Play chess with other players
- Work on solving tactical puzzles
- Read and study one or more of the best chess books, and apply what you learn
Don’t expect to become a master just from reading a few books on chess, however. The greatest advances are the accumulated results of many small steps, and those usually come from playing chess games.
