My question is simple? Apart from practices, playing chess with other GM's, etc... What are things take us to GM place... Something like phycology of opponents in move or is there any ethics to follow.... some says have to know the weakness of opnent.... Like this... What's essentially to know to become GM.

I'm not playing from childhood. How to overcome those who are playing from childhood.

??????? My long time.....

    How about stop asking questions how to become a grandmaster. We have huge amount of them here and it is so frustrating to see it. Looks like every one rep user is kind of obliged to ask a question how can he become a grandmaster. Don't you think that if someone here would know this, he would be a grandmaster, or don't you think that if it would be that easy as to ask a question on the forum and follow 10 single steps - everyone would be a GM? – Salvador Dali Apr 5 '15 at 1:28

    your question is extremely confusing. At the beginning you start with something which resembles a question, judging by the question mark. You end your question with ??? my long time... What exactly that was suppose to mean. Then you have another question how to overcome those who are playing from childhood. Also what's essentially to know to become a grandmaster. So basically you question boils down to how to become a grandmaster and there are a lot of questions like that here. The fact that you once added psychology does not makes it so much different. – Salvador Dali Apr 5 '15 at 3:19

As Bobby Fischer said: "I don't believe in psychology, I believe in good moves!"

You need the self confidence to make hard and risky decision under time pressure, apart from that, psychology is overrated in chess, as far as I'm concerned.

Finding weaknesses of your opponent is mostly done in opening preparation. Strong players usually don't have any glaring weaknesses anyway and only in world championship level preparation do you really have the time to take apart every aspect of your opponents games and character.

To overcome players who played since they were children: Work more and work harder. Unfortunately starting early is a big advantage in chess.

  • I accept work hard n more everything is k.... Wat the couch ll teach other than moves, rules, hard work, more work, ... Etc.... How they judge weakness of opponent within those steps – Rasa Mohamed Apr 5 '15 at 3:35
  • To really find weaknesses you'll rather use statistics than psychology. If you'll find that your opponent scores badly in certain positions or openings, you might go for it. But generally you will be much more occupied with your own weaknesses ... – BlindKungFuMaster Apr 5 '15 at 6:08
