3 in a row to start!
Well I went out and got a chess game today (CM:GM) and figured I'd give chess a try.
Well it made me a 900 and set me up in a match against Edward who is a 949. And he beat me 3 times in a row. I'm horrid.
I've been parusing the lessons here and on CM and at chesstactics.org. Hopefully I'll get my first win in soon.
One of the things that gets me is the 5 minute time limit that is set up automatically by CM. Is that normal? One of my losses was because of time.
