This information considers how battlefield strategies and tactics can be used to win more games. If this seems interesting, read these AWAP posts.
Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted.
When coming to a competition, arrive early enough to scope out the playing environment (even if it is already familiar). Get a look at the competition listing to identify players you know and don't. Identify others who have also come early. Walk through the competition area, checking the tables, cushions, and pockets. When possible, run through some favorite drills, leisurely pocket several racks, just enough to start warming up. About an hour before the match starts, stop and find a comfortable location to relax. Observe late arrivals and judge their readiness.
