How to NOT Play Chess

There are numerous "How To" books and blogs out there. Examples of these are how to make money from home, how to get rich, how to get a girlfriend, etc.

I am trying an experiment... I'm going to start writing "How to NOT" articles.

It is actually easier to write material on what NOT to do than to write what to do. For example, if you want to write an article on how to play chess, it takes years and years of practice and playing in tournaments before you are any good. Then you'd have to be at least an International Master for anyone to take you seriously.

If you want to write an article on how NOT to play chess... it's really easy. I'll write one right now. Here's my advice on how NOT to play chess.... it's usually not a good idea to move your f and g pawns forward too early. Here's a link to a game I played on chess.com against an opponent who learned this the hard way. Here is the game:

It was SUCH a tough battle but I managed to win.... barely.
