Hi Lucas,

This is a common problem for players.  The more you play the better you will get at dealing with it.

When you start to feel nervous, take a few seconds and take a nice deep breath and then think about the tactics you need for the next point.

We will be making a series on  dealing with stress in tournaments in the future.

Also take a look through the previous questions on Mental preparation.
