    My weaknesses; often I play too fast when I dont need to and sometimes I am too nice (and stupid.) and accept draws in better positions.  Foot in mouth

    Tron84nh, I totally agree, I will fight into the end. Even If its just my king. I will refuse to draw or surrender. I think I got this stubborness from my mother. URA!Foot in mouth

    I know my endgame is me being very stubborn to lose. I like it that way. go down fighting. Now if only i could set myself up beforehand so i am not in that position

    I find it difficult to transition from opening to midgame, once pieces are optimally placed (usually book moves), it's hard to chose what change to attain maximum benefit.

    1. preventing opponent's knights from making chaos on my side of the board; 2. gaining small but important advantage in the middlegame when the position is equal

    definitely openings. i really have trouble adapting to what my opponent does. i once saw an article on nd5 almost guarantees success, but i dont know if thats true.
