Progress of a novie 4
This hasn't been a good week for my chess studies.
I am on a horrible losing streak against players of all levels.
By my count I have lost the last 13 out of 14 matches online.
Almost all of them have been through a stupid mistakes by me.
I study chess alot since I have alot of time on my hands. I must study tactics for 1-1.5 hours a day. I look at grandmaster games even though I don;t have the slightest clue what is going on in most of them. I am at a low. I had visions of playing in tournaments (competantly). Now I am at a crossroads in playing...should I continue to pursue my studies or shelf chess as nothing more than a game to bring out during cookouts? I am losing motivation fast.
This is a frustrating game.
