You are right that the chess culture in Lund has been very important for me, and that it's important in general.The first time I saw Ulf Andersson analysing was the most exciting chess experience I have had. It inspired me, even though I felt it was something unreachable. Of course it's not the same to read his annotated games.
The knowledge he taught was also helpful, but not nearly as important. That is easier to get from books.
Finally: Memory is one of the most important skills in chess, and I have written quite a lot about it in the book. But with the right attitude, I think it's possible to improve even at higher age.
Congratulations on your book and your well deserved "chesscafe.com book of the year 2013 Award"! - in my personal ranking it just took over first place in the category "best chess training book ever" from Tisdall´s "Improve your chess NOW", Everyman Chess 1997.
Of course the new Aagaard "Grandmaster preparation" course is great too; so my first question is: "Is it necessary to breath North-European air to write really great chess-training books"?
Back to the title of this forum; your "chess.com-tactics-rating" is quite nice. As an experienced user of the "chess.com Tactics Trainer: "Which improvements / corrections in the chess.com Tactics Trainer would be necessary to become the best possible way to train the "Woodpecker Method" (see Part II, Chapter 6)?
Best wishes from Austria (no North-European air available)
