Nothing in particular
New to the site and just starting to figure out what is available.
I have found that vote chess is a bit frustrating if you can see a trainwreck coming and the majority doesn't. Just vote and get overridden. Definitely seems a bit like the elections in the US. (Not happy about the clown we elected, and wasn't happy about the only other option available, who was also a clown) Can we at least be honest about this?
I am finding that the tactics trainer is extremely valuable in improving my game. I have tried more than 10% of the total tests available. In my game I am starting to see how to build the conditions that look like a puzzle. (a series of forced moves leading to a positive conclusion)
So the pattern recognition is in development.
I have started studying openings a bit. It is VERY tedious though. I am uncertain how much time I want to allocate to it. (the game is supposed to be fun, right?)
I haven't worked on developing anything else yet.
