Does anyone know any exercise, traning method, puzzles or anything that would improve my calculation and defense? Im around 1900 OTB and i would really like to improve those 2 things
Interesting to see that the one who post this forum about improving on calculation and defense was now a chess master.
maybe because he didn't get any advice off this forum, I don't know
LoOl he got pissed that no one answered and he was like ''I'm gonna show you bitches.. one day ya all dead!'' Nice improvement..
And I was ready to recommend reverse tactical exercises where it's the defender's turn to move and Aagard and Lund's "Right Decisions" CD as some of their calculation exercises emphasise defense too =(
1900 to over 2300 in 15 months. That's extremely impressive.
I would recommend doing lots of TT and tactical exercises from books.
Good luck, and hope this helps!
ok now dat u made from 1900 to 2300 in like just over a year u got tips for da rest of us pls???
absolutely, I would like to know what exactly happened in the last 15 months to raise the OP's rating 400 points! How exactly did he/she study, what did he/she do? Serious improvement there!
