- For Whom Is This File Written?
For whom is this file written? This essay is is intended for a wide variety of players; there are three separate chapters for three arbitrarily selected levels of play of people who have little or no experience in competition. This ranges from the absolute-beginner to someone who can be quite good, but not "tournament-hardened".
This file is not intended to limit postings to RSTS. If you have further questions, please feel free post. We're a friendly bunch. :-)
The three chapters are as follows:
- Chapter One is for those who have essentially never played before, or are just learning how to play.
- Chapter Two is for those who have played for several months to several years, but only on a casual level -- for these people, they rarely have considered practicing, shots are impressive only once in a while, but they certainly haven't taken the game strategy seriously... until now... and wish to learn more.
- Chapter Three is a short list of advice for those who have played seriously, even for several years, but only on a very local level. This would include bar-players and college-players who are considered among the best at their respective home ground, but who have not had any "big" tournament experience.
