Nice rating you got there
I got it 2,107 rating very fast just because my big Mating Practice and Mating Theory skills!
I study a lot of combinations, attacks, mates. The Book for 1,200 Combination I can handle for 1-2 days, while working on my Post! So, I got even paid $$$ for that!
Fun real story! I show to my partner the Book with 1,234 Mates, and asked him to give me any one to solve, and asked him again how much time I need to do it? He told, that at least 30 seconds! I reply, that I need 3 seconds!
He gave me a position with Mate on 3 moves, where I find the very rear Mate at 2-3 seconds...
Also, I got and made thousands Mates at 7 months at site!
I enjoy it in both ways... Devote more times to study and real games, where You do not know, what is going on and what gonna happen! You have to make a decisions very fast and deep! It can be a lot of mistakes for you! But if you know thousands patterns, it help a lot!
Good Point! I am working my way through Cheng's book ("Practical Chess Exercises(?)") and I really like it! A nice collection of good puzzles without hints to what to look for. Check it out!
And I play OTB Games since 1975, Correspondent Games since 1982... Internet Games since Yahoo, Web and Columbus times...
I hope to release some of my brand chess books this year!
Maybe, it will be an e-books for start? So, you can just download them, after payments. It can help a practical Chess Players to rise-up fast, sure and even on fun ways! I do not like boring books...
Beside my ultra-intensive Chess Practice I am Chess Coach with more than 35 years of organising Chess Activities at School, Technical School, Institute, Factories, Kinder-Gardens, Private lessons...
