What to do with my time? and the chamber of secrets.
This is part 2 of my favorite activities in the search of chess universal conquest or whatever...
1- Chess partner hard mode games
Put it in HARD and let it harden your head. I personally hate that cheeky java piece of.... its wonderfull for blunders.
2- mail chess here
If youre here you already play it. Challenge me and lets play a game.
3-live chess here
My suggestion is to get a board. A nice cheap plastic stauton tournament board. Play 1 game at a time and filter for people from your rating down. Its a treat.
4-live chess on Cbase server
Same deal as with the live play here, except you cant filter and the players can be ruthless. So brace for impact. A bit more IRC ish environment. Its great.
5- Character play on Masschester (15-10)
Masschester is just Chessmaster i figured thats pretty obvious. But DANG i get my best training from playing those characters on 15-10 mode. My elo in Masschester is usually 200 below my elo here. But at least they both move together.
5-Tactics cardio on masschester.
There is a level in Masschester thats called drills. Its like the tactics trainier here, just crapier. The one here is amazing.
6-Playing another human live.
I almost never get to do this. But its super fun.
7-Pgn watching for other peoples famous games
I have to admit ive become lazy to this very important excercise. I just havent figured out a way to make it more interactive and productive.
8-Puzzle solvin here
Just click the link and enjoy. Dont cheat. Solve them. It hard but its worth it. I promise.
