Schedules

Asmo2k

Interested to hear how beginners in general approach this game with regards to their practice. Do you play each day? What do you focus on? Is it organised at all, or do you do what you feel like at that time?

I look at openings (which mixes with studying strong players games - in the positions that arise in what I play) for about 30 minutes. Play a game. Then do some tactics. I neglect some things tbh, but there are only 24 hours in the day. I try to play late each night, but it's maybe more like 5 times a week about.

I try and play as often as I can however I don’t have a schedule. I’m focusing on ‘contollong the center’ at the moment. I’ve taken some lessons on here which were extremely helpful to me. I also find playing with other members help too; especially ones willing to help you out.

No schedule is madness to me, mate. I'd probably lose track of things. When I don't play for a few days, it's like 'what was I working at again?'.

I guess if I want to learn I should have some type of schedule but I don’t know what day/times I’m going to be free so it’s kind of hard.
