Masters do no Tactics Trainer

    CM, FM, IM, GM: you find them in the Tactics Trainer Ratings, but none of them is doing many Tactics Puzzles. I wonder why?

    I think people of that pedigree got to where they are by doing "other stuff" well before Chess.com was invented ...  the trainers were meant to help mere mortals.

    No, you dont: The Tactics Statistic says you did only 1900. Thats only about 35 h in almost 2 jears,3 min or 3 attempts a day.  You are one of the most active Masters at TT and you are not realy doing a lot. 1400 Tacticians have more attempts. 35h is something for the days between christmas and new-jear and not for 2 jears. I am surprised. What are professionell Players doing , do they use other Tactics Servers?

    Some of them are answering strange questions, posed by amateurs. Wink

    LOL.

    First you need to define what you consider "a lot"

    Second, using your statistic of 1400 players with more attempts (I did not verify)  then NM Cobblepot we quickly fine that he is in the 91st percentile in attempts, given that there are 15,054 players.

    In other words, you need to verify your parameters better and it is (usually) preferable to use percentages in lieu of raw numbers.

    Well you didn't say anything about number per day, you said total. And this is coming from someone who has done only 2900.

    I'm not sure if that even makes sense when I re-read it. It's difficult to produce such a brand of logic so as to contribute meaningfully in some sense to this discussion.


    Yes i did not do a lot of problems here, only 2900. I am hobby player with a lousy rating and like 1400 others chess.com Members i did more numbers of problems then you. You can do as many Tactics as you wish, no question, everyone can do what he/she wants, but i was thinking/expecting Masters in general ( not neccessary you ) are doing a lot of training, and a lot of Tactic Training to ( at least in average ). But it seems that this is not the case. There is no Master doing 1 h of tactictraining a Day as i thought, just 3 min, what is ok, of couse, but not a lot. Some Masters recoment the amount of 1h Tactictraining a day... hmm.. i wonder where, why not here .. just strange

    You may verify. From the 15054 players many are using TT only since a short time or not as a traing tool but from time to time for entertainment only. To answer your question about what i consider a lot: something like an hour a day?

    I am astonished that the fakt that Masters dont use TT does affect so much excitement. Even the Number of Masters using it is extrem low in my eyes

    they probably just dont practice here. i've done over 7500 in the past two months elsewhere. boosted my chess.com TT rating from mid-1400's to mid-1900's. but then that's from me only doing 3/day here.

     guess it's worth pointing out that i was probably not at my top here when i started there. so, the mid-1400 rating could be bogus.

    I use several "Elsewheres" and there are not that many Masters there to. Maybe they hide their identity? But some of the Masters (2 ? FM's) being there, are doing lots of tactics, some of them 100+ a day or 10000+ in total. Maybe you know a Elswhere with Masters doing a lot of work there ?

    LoL, seemingly they do, but what are they doing to stay/get strong players? TT they are not doing.
