    Bladezii was banned for cheating, so I would be cautious following his advice...

    I like it but it seems like tactics is a little over board on this schedule.

    Tactics is important, but you have to consciously remember to check for them and calculate


    , even in boring positions. Let me take an example from one of the games in which I lose "magnificently"

    If you already have openings you like to play.  Study, and understand the principles, and ideas behind that opening, why the moves are made.  It will do you no good to memorize lines of theory yet.  Study, and learn the pawn formations in those openings.  Andrew Soltis book on Pawn Structure is excellent. 

    If youre comfortable doing it.  Post some of your games with white and black.  You have the entire chess.com community here to help.

    That is: you have at least a dozen courteous and helpful players ready to comment on your games, and several times that number of trolls.

    The annonymity of the internet allows everyone to be brave.  Its like beer, but without the hangover, and you dont have puke on your clothes.

    Hijodelaluna banned. Not sure you were referring to him earlier, but his profile and post were highly suspect.
