There's soo much to learn with this ahhhh my tiny mind is exploding!!!!

That's why the four-point plan I posted above is so simple. There's no point in overloading your brain with new and difficult concepts. The hardest part of the plan is the blunder check, not because it's difficult to understand or do, but because it requires sustained concentration. A momentary lapse, and there goes your queen. It's happened to all of us, and still happens to most of us from time to time, even at 1200, 1300, 1400...

And you can count on it happening, time and time again, to your opponents at 300, 400, 500... That's how you win at your level - by punishing your opponent's blunders and avoiding blundering yourself.

Thank you these pointers I am soo in need of and I really appreciate this! xxx

Welcome to chess.com Anna !

Best of luck to you.

As an aside, May I ask where you purchased your couch?

I love the color and design. You have great taste!

See the OP closed their account. You'll never get your furniture advice now @Bishop_e3. Bit weird you had those pictures though.

Ok

Greyflitworth

I asked. He didn't answer. Maybe it's a secret or just something randomly nonsensical he wrote lol.

When his pictures came on I asked her who he was and if he was a bf. She seemed quite nice and we were talking. I had the impression his post was in really bad taste and he was jealous of her being here. She said he was just someone who was helping her with her chess but I didn't believe her. Now he's lurking, to read the comments. happy.png

@Optimissed ok. All very weird but it's the internet so that's not surprising. Thanks for the clarification.

You're very welcome, @Greyflitworth. It's sad when a person we genuinely like disappears like that but it happens quite a lot. I liked her but I also thought that she wasn't being genuine because she probably couldn't admit to something. She said she was studying graphic arts as a degree course but I think she was doing something else.
