    Maybe he allows his students to practice on chess.com. He gets diamond membership which gives unlimited access to TT and he uses it as a training tool for his students. Just a guess. 

    I read in one NM's profile that he plays only bullet chess, blitz and standard are played by his son or students.

    LOL! At least I'm not the worst at tactics trainer. I hate chess puzzles, because all I do is look at them and try to crash the highest value piece into the enemy king. These puzzle things only encourage me to play wrecklessly.

    Not the worst strategy ever.

    I use the TT to determine if I'm too tired or drunk to continue playing, consequently, my score aint great. Plus, as an ad-watcher, I only get 3 a day.

    that's actually a very good strategy, or is it tactic ?

    It does feel good to be better than a grandmaster at tactics though.

    I agere with DrSputnik. Often the tempting sacrifice can be seen immediately, and if you start the timeconsuming process of actually calculating the variations to the end, you'll lose rating points. It gives you bad habits.

    Excellent question. I dunno. I'm too tired to figure it out right now. I guess the question was a good strategy/tactic to see if I should stop posting.

    Actually, I can see one's rating being low, especially if one doesn't have a lot of tactics under one's belt. If you take your time and go past the time allotment, your rating ends up quite low. I know on my phone, I will pull up a tactic, get pulled away, get the tactic right but lose 15 points because I didn't do it in the time limit.

    I use TT while I use the bathroom every morning. I only get 3 a day. Feels good to be rated 2200 with it though.
