What an exhausting journey...
After hours upon hours of (not so) relentless training, I have finally gathered the courage to join the site! You would not believe how nervous I am, playing chess, especially so when there is a rating involved!
I've never been very good at the game, and while I have a basic understanding of tactics, it's difficult to apply them without making irreversible mistakes. Such is life, however, and so I decided to give it a shot anyway.
I won my first game against an English lad with a 1150 rating. He was a bloody tough opponent, that much is for sure. Luckily, time was on my side (quite literally), and I managed to pull it off. I hope I can win again. Knowing myself, and my bad luck with the tactics trainer, I'll probably start falling behind real soon.
That'd be all for now!
