Breaking 1200

    I got condescending replies from janniktr and wasted_youth which I responded to with the like; I got a polite reply for Tyrrhenus which I reponded to with a joke; I got an incomprehensible reply from whyayeman which I didn't even attempt to respond to. You're going to have to tell me how I have been a jerk because all I can see is stupidity, arrogance and condescension on the part of others. I guess I just can't see it because I'm a jerk, right?

    "I guess I just can't see it because I'm a jerk, right?"

    In a nutshell, yes.

    • My rhetorical question: "Having a bad day, dearie?"
    • The underlying statement: yes, you obviously are (or you´re like this all the time)
    • Why you were not supposed to answer it: The only way that an answer would have made sense would have been if the following assumption were true - that you are not having a bad day (or are like this all the time), which it is obviously not.

    By the way, it´s "elaborate", without a "u".

    What's incomprehensible about asking for clarification about a verb that is not in the English dictionary ElaboUrate What does it mean? Talk about a storm in a teacup lol

    Any video or books that will improve your chess basics and chess general principle understanding will do.

    He should have understood that a comment like this just invites an abusive response. Anybody who claims that they can't see that must be either stupid or trolling.

    What you should have said.

    Tactics daily and analyzing your games. This is what I'm doing to improve. It takes time, but so far I'm seeing progress. Keep at it!

    I know your above 1200 now, but I think you could benefit from GM Igor Smirnov's videos. They're great!
