im happy to say that my game is actually getting better in recent weeks. i managed to win 3 in a row and raised my rating from 1070 to 1378! i know this could change very quickly for the worse but i feel like i'm on the right track win or lose! studying positions and puzzles and viewing grandmaster games seems to be helping me see the board more clearly. im currently working on my openings and trying to get used to recognising my opponents plans. i'll have to start studying endgames soon, i dread that! for me endgames are the toughest part of chess.
