Can somebody take the time to analyze me as a chess player

At your level, the only style there is, is Blundering.

Yes, it's like a second grader who just learned how to write asks about his writing style...

First play games, read some basic chess books, study tactics etc. in order to learn the basics of the game. Once you are 2000 it makes sense to worry about your style.

i would have quit chess if i had to wait 20 minutes for a move of my opponent at that level but everone is different.

 

Then there is absolutely no reason for you to play chess because that's how the game is played. You'll be limited to playing unrated bs on Chess.com if you can't handle more than 5 min on your clock. 

 

Bored? What else do you have to do? NOTHING lol. You got all the time in the world to wait for your opponent. No, you're not bored - You're stupid and have no attention span. That's the mentality of a "speed chess" moron.

I do play classical time controls deirde (now), i just dont think its a very good idea do hang your time if your not ready to calculate three moves ahead. There are patterns for tactics you can learn by heart in this time which saves you time you otherwise need to "invent" on your own.

How could you think you know better than countless masters and grandmasters? They all say that playing anything with less than 60 min on the clock (or less w/ a huge increment) isn't ultimately going to help you improve past a certain point. You honestly think you know something they don't? No...you don't. 

 

You're a speed chess drooler. It's ok, but that's what you are. You're not a chess player. 

 

The goal of the game is not fast calculation - It's the ability to calculate deeply and precisely. That takes time, and more of it the more complicated the position/game get.

Hey deirde imagine you are a 6 year old boy who has 6 hours of school 5 days a week, do you think he wants to sit one full hour at a chessboard- or is it more likely that he isnt able to concentrate because he lacks exercise? Why do kids at that age hate to go to church- because they have to sit one hour without being able to jump around. With age comes patience.

There is nothing wrong with playing speed chess. To each his own.

Speed chess is not a great way to learn but there are advantages to playing speed chess for some.

Even some super grandmasters play speed chess...

No idea why you thought this was needed but ...thanks, I guess? 

 

Super GM's playing speed chess is a little different than some chess.com troll doing it.

LOL - Don't you even dare use the fact that you're young as an excuse for not being able to focus on Chess. It's the other way around. You have TONS of time to work on Chess. You think going to school and then coming home is a busy schedule? Man, are you in for a rude awakening in your life at some point. Your schedule, at this point in your life, is nothing. You have no job. No girlfriend/wife. No kids. No bills. No car. No bank accounts, credit cards, mortgages, loans, businesses to run. You go to school, read cat in the hat, and then come home. You have more time for chess than any adult who isn't literally a bum. 

 

There are 7-14 year olds playing in FIDE tournaments every weekend. You have no excuse. 

ponz111

Does someone need an "excuse" not to focus on chess?

testaaaaa

absolutly ponz, if you do want you want to do you can go all day intrinsic motivation

     I know many 9-10 year old boys and girls that can sit on the board for a full hour and more.

These are the ones that earn the titles, not the ones that find it boring.

thats what i said to ponz, guys who get the title later are intrinsically motivated and invest hours and hours because they want to.  By the way deirde i only know one grandmaster who is really good at teaching children-Arthur Yussupow. His students play long games but only after After! they understand enough to use their time. They know the basic endgames they know the basic tactics...

I have time, I haven the resources, and I have the motivation, I guess it is time to clear up my act and stop slacking and start whacking!

When someone is low rated--he makes the same mistakes over and over again.

Best, in my opinion, is to get a higher rated person [by at least 700 points in this case] to look at some of your games and tell you and show you--your mistakes.

Then write them down and play games of at least 30 minutes per game.

While playing your games--keep the list right next to you and try not to make any moves which are listed as mistakes.

If you do this--you should double your rating in about 3 months.

Most of the time (including this case), the reason for such horrible play is because the players are being lazy, not because they are bad players. These are the common signs of laziness

1. Not working on tactics

2. Not checking for hanging pieces

3. Not considering carefully the consequence of each move.

4. Not analyzing their games or at least, checking for blunders with the computer.

A hard-working player should see the improvement within 2 weeks of intense training. I am a good example. Here is my latest game:

 
Here is one of the first games I ever played, on June 18, 2018
 

If he is serious on improving your chess game, he will earn it (quickly).
