    Do NOT play fast games.   You tend to make moves because of the timer.   If you play a game where you got a half hour you will take more time to think your moves thru.    One trick you do not see much in books is you nail the other guys knights and one bishop.   Usually you can do that with a one for one trade.   The trick is you leave him one bishop which is limited to one color of square.   Do it right and bingo,  all of your pieces are on the opposite color making his bishop useless.    And while you are doing this,  you want to keep one knight so no matter what color his pieces are on, you can hit them.     Then you can just hop around picking off his pieces and he can not hit you back.

    Remember the basic rules:

    (1) evaluate your strengths

    (2) evaluate your opponent's strengths

    (3) evaluate what your opponent can do to weaken your strengths

    (4) how can you weaken your opponent more than he can weaken you

    (5) protect your king.

    In terms of learning:

    Remember that there are only a very few good opening moves for either side:

    (a) e4

    (b) d4

    (c) c4

    (d) Kn-f3

    (e) g3 

    And: treat your pawns as if they were a garrison force, not an attacking force (except when you are already in a winning position).

    As for the French Defence:

    it's a rather crabbed opening for Black, but it has the advantage of being "asymmetrical", which makes it hard for White to get an attack going easily, without creating major weaknesses in his pawn structure. D4 is the key square....

    The first thing I learn is the object  to the game is to capture your opponent's king before you king gets captured. Concentrate on all pieces. Learn some tricks.

    1 of my favorite trick is move my knight to put opponent's king and queen in check. needless say king got to move. Queen gets eliminated. That would you some advantage.
