I often wonder when it is that I will level up in Chess. I remember the first level up going from not knowing anything to knowing a little. The to "knowing a little" to knowing enough to not die very quickly. After that the leveling slows and I get frustrated with playing. I need more time to study tactics and burn them into my brain. I need to learn more about about opening patterns so that I don't get caught in those stinking traps. I need more time..someimtes I wish it were possible to actually live out groundhog day.
