Kindred’s Special: Going to a Tournament

There are many ways to prepare to play in a chess tournament.  Here, the Spirit gives his own view and practice that has paid dividends over the years. Here is my listing:

  • Avoid looking at the chessboard and set at least 5- days prior to entering the event. During that time frame try to select what equipment to take–board, set, clock, score pad;
  • Rest up. Try to get at least 7-9 hours relaxation–walking for exercise, sleeping, fun with family and friends;
  • Eat balanced meals and favorite liquids in moderation;
  • Select clothes that are comfortable and pants with deep pockets;
  • Keep your wallet in your left side pocket, never in your hip pocket or sportcoat as these are a pickpocket’s best friend;
  • If possible, familiarize yourself with the rules and chess programs offered.  If not clear, telephone ahead to get some sort of activity schedule for both players and non-players;
  • Shop for the most economic means of travel–car, plane, bus, and best to enter by phone if credit cards are acceptable;
  • Location is important for restaurant dining, and public transportation like bus or taxi for those without vehicles;
  • At the site, communicate if with family or friends scheduling to avoid getting separated;
  • Play with good sportsmanship and enjoy the art of chess battle!
  • Leave quarters neat and clean when departing to return home.

    Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
