i was thinking if i was asked for advice on strategy for certain situations.
now i know i am not old and wise. but what i know i know, and what i know is the game of chess.
i have played poker a few times and understand it a little. a checkers is not my game. but i believe these games are given to us from higher powers
to teach us examples. now i will get to the point of this.
i am quite the good chess player and i believe the game is a game of war albeit nobody ever gets hurt. but if you want to take the game into real life
scenario you need to look at the game of chess. learn it, understand it.
what you want to do is have a sound opening or even a book opening in which you play the first 10 or so moves that you know have been played many
times and proven ways to open the game.
you can also play the opening out of book if you are good enough and you can throw your opponent out his game by playing moves he does not predict. in
chess you want the initiative, to always be 1 move ahead of your opponent or more if you can but 1 is usually enough.
you want to set up all your peices on the board before you make any attack on your opponent.
never bring out your strongest piece the queen to early or it will get trapped usually. now in the game of poker, the idea is to be able to read your
opponent to know what hand he is holding, whether he is bluffing or truly has a good hand.
see what other players are doing, are they folding at his bluff? is he a cheater with an ace up his sleeve if so then the ace up his sleeve does not
play into effect.
now in checkers you have people who will hug the edge of the board where they generally do not get involved.
