The endgame is where they say the real chess is played. The book has long since been thrown out the window. You've got to know your stuff on opposition, the Lucena maybe or even how to mate with just a knight and bishop. Well you never know! Do you know any other crucial endgame gems?

The middlegame is all about patterns. Recognizing opportunities to lay traps. Winning material or getting great positions by playing clever combinations and just knowing your way around the board. Maybe you have tried and tested methods for gaining the upperhand in this phase.

There is a lot of theory in the openings but it is important to understand each opening you play, not a case of simply memorizing the moves. It's easier to improvize when needed if you understand what you're trying to do. What's your favorite opening and why do you like it? How do you use it to get an edge in your games?
