    I find, when playing chess on the pc it's a big leap for your brain to make from the usual three dimensional board to the two dimension one.
    It helps me to have a solid chessboard beside me and make the moves on that for a point of reference to keep a firm grip of the game.
    Try that with a good chess prog. There are some good ones on Suprnova at the minute. Getting beaten in chess is a learning experience and good for your game. Practice, practice, practice.

    agreed; the only way to improve your game is to play against people who are significantly better than you.

    if you want to play IRL, then id also get a board in front of you, and copy the moves onto it.

    get a pc game of chess and start playing...try to play a PC player who can beat you to start with; keep playing against that character until you can destroy them, then keep moving up levels, and youll get really good

    There are no shortcuts. I suggest studying between 4 to 6 openings (for light and dark pieces) where likely transpositions will occur. Then sharpen your end-game techniques; there are masters out there who don&#39;t know bishop/knight endings&#33; Encylopedia of Endgames is overkill and expensive but if you can afford it. Most of my improvements occurred when I would made flash cards from "what&#39;s the best move" out of Chess Life. Study the position no more than 5-minutes then look at the answer. The goal with the flash cards is pattern recognition, not reinventing the wheel. Blitz will help you learn your openings but will result in bad habits at tournament time&#33;
