Take whatever your rating is in Coorespondence and subtract 200 elo points. That will give you your real playing strength in OTB. I salute you for playing so many blitz games and working the Tactcial Trainer. It is obvious to see that you have improved over the past year. Good job!
1967-200=1767 OTB, not too bad!
Before I reset my tactics, my rating was ~2600. No joke. I am not kidding
well done! I have a long learning process to go before I get to that level but one day I will. what did you study that helped you reach that level of playing?
are you refering to titust or me?! If it is me, i studyed a lot of master games, and played a lot of games.....and analyzed them after. Really all it takes is a fairly sharp brain and a couple hundred hours and you are there before you know it (i say a fairly sharp brain because some people don't have the mental capasaty for that much improvment, or the ability to paly chess at that level)
