The HustleDevin Knight
A great little trick/bet you can learn in just a few minutes and you are always ready to stump someone. The effect can be done with cards, matches or coins. The twelve objects are laid out in three horizontal rows. The object of the game is that the person left with the last item to pick up loses the game. You only play this game with one person at a time. The rules are simple. The player can only take from one row at a time. Take as many as you wish from either the first, second or third row, but you cannot pick from different rows until your next turn. Either you or the spectator can start...

College Bridge Series Second SemesterChris Hasney
2nd semester contains only 11 prepared lessons, several of which can be assigned as homework reading. This allows instructors time to complete any unfinished work from 1st semester and still have extra time for integrating new members into the club, final prep for online College Bowl competition, etc. It should be noted that the rules for the competition have changed. You now have two chances (one each semester) to qualify, but they occur much earlier in the calendar year in fall and winter. Adapt and overcome.
Originally I had planned to integrate match point play and full 2/1 Game Force...

The Grandmaster's Positional UnderstandingIgor Smirnov

Why is it that they WIN games and tournaments almost ALL the time...and some players can't even keep a positive score? The answer obviously is this:
Stronger players UNDERSTAND chess better!
No, they don't just calculate variations. Strong players don't just memorize opening lines. They don't just look for tactics every move. What set really strong players ahead of the pack is their DEEP and CLEAR UNDERSTANDING of the game....

Why do Some Players Play BETTER Than Others?
Really, why? A lot of people play and study chess. However, only 1-3% of players have really good achievements (titles, prizes...). What is different about this successful minority from the rest? It is NOT a matter of talent. I have observed thousands of different players, and I can state it with confidence.
