I like the Trainer, but I am confused as to what the goal is on each puzzle. If you make the "Wrong move" you failed. What is the general goal on this, is it just what would be the best move overall, or is there another sub goal like check mate in three moves, get the queen, or defend against an attack?
There are different goals, win material, checkmate or just a better position.
Sometimes its hard to find the right moves but after a time playing them it will be easier.
There are three Elements in chess:Force, space, and time but the first is stable than the other two.
Thats my question more so to the point; which one is it? I am not a premium member yet, so if that is the goal, Im not seeing it until after I make the move. If I were to have an idea that Im looking for a better positoin, I would be more likely to go for that, or if it were to capture a piece, then I would concintrate on that. I guess in the end the unkown does make it more of a challenge, and a more realistic training tool, but still....I would like to have more Passed then failures on the list lol.
