    To be honest kinda but not that good at it, its important for you to think like 2 turns in the future and what situations can happen and based on that to find the best move for that turn , you gotta think is it good or bad and why is it like so . Its complicated but you will get into it .

    During elem days, a classmate of mine did not say that my king is checked. On his next move he ate the king and declared himself winner even tho it's still not checkmate. lmao

    It's quite a good hobby indeed, helps with memory, calculation, concentration, logic, beyond logic (zugswang) etc...

    Not sure about strategies for intermediate and advance players, but there are basic strategies (or chess openings) you can go for, such as the Queen's Gambit. You can find a whole list of chess openings online. I think people that play chess a lot would easily recognize some of these common openings, but if you're just practicing or playing against an inexperienced player, it might be useful to try out. I just wouldn't recommend it if you're playing it in a tournament unless you have other strategies in mind when your opponent could predict your move.

    But I think basic chess openings are better for getting comfortable with familiarizing with tiles. For novices, I think they typically think about the chess pieces (how they're supposed to move around) and the color tiles (where the piece can land on), but aren't really thinking about tiles in terms of a letter and a number (e.g. move rook to A4). When you start thinking about chess in terms of a letter and a number, it's almost like thinking like a computer program. And that way of thinking helps you better adapt to the game (perhaps in variations of chess like timed chess).
