OK, so I found another flaw in my chess game - the end game. The only planned way I can get someone into checkmate is by trapping my opponents king in the last two files or rows using Rooks and/or a Queen. Any other way I have won by checkmate was by pure luck.

So here are my top three things I need to work on:

1) Tactics

2) Stopping from making stupid moves (my last game against the computer I lost my Queen because I moved my bishop, which was blocking my Queen from attack, to take a Knight. The computer promptly took my Queen with a Rook)

3) The End Game

 

Anyone else ever feel like a Neanderthal when you want to play with the intelligence of DaVinci ?
