*[[Non-overstacking construction]]
 
+
*[[Back-to-Back Chaining Methods]]
In this situation, a player overstacks and takes longer to get down to the garbage.

[[Twist|T-spin]] singles are the easiest to spot and to exploit in multiplayer. Not utilizing them will only put you at a disadvantage against an opponent who does. In ''[[Tetris Worlds]]'', T-spin singles with the T tetromino's flat side against the wall don't send garbage, but in ''[[Tetris DS]]'', they do.

If you have a chance to BtB in a short time period, don't pass it up. The more time you give your opponent between a BtB, the more likely he will have formed a plan for the upcoming garbage.

Defensive

When nearing a top out, counter the garbage as best as you can. Your opponent will not recieve extra ammunition and will have to build his own tetrises. Do not waste time making many singles. Most of all, remember not to overstack.
