Day 3! (100 day chess challenge)
Still haven't fully got into the learning frame of mind, more games than not tend to me quick blitz games. However I have been playing more 10minute games which are better. Tomorrow I hope to get in more rapid games as I don't often play these. I have a decent rating in rapid at the moment but due to this I want to keep it. However I need to change this perspective, games need to be for improvement and fun, not rating. This will be a barrier for me. Opening Dilema; I have been having excellent games playing black in the french defense, however as soon as i face this opening as white I have no idea what to do, as I essentially don't like many approaches in the main lines.
Quick Tactics, Game 1
I've found myself spotting these tactics more and more in games
Out for blood; Game two.
Opponent made a few critical errors which led to this nice checkmate.
