Any noobie tips on mid game - end game? Lagi ako talo when it comes to pawn/king moves.

1.Solve tactics problems to improve your tactical skills and lessen blunders
2. Open with 1.d4 or 1.e4. Answer 1.d4 with d5. Answer 1.e4 with e5.
3. Always look at the whole board and study your opponent's last move
4. Try to watch King Crusher's youtube videos. They will help you improve your middle game.
5. Search at youtube for endgame positions like king and rook against lone king mate and opposition endgames.
