I suck at daily chess!

I really notice that I lose much more than I win. I also noticed that many others are above the starting 1200 rating and I am rated only 1036.

Luckily I have many super great friends that are good at everything in the stats...and 23 of them!!!

Try taking your time and analysing your losses. It might seem hard at first, but believe me, it works!

AFAIK, daily chess players do research (e.g. read chess books, consult friends, and use end-game tablebases) before making a move.  So, if you don't do any of that, then you are at a disadvantage.  It isn't for everybody; but I hear it will improve your chess game.

No NO No.  Yes on the chess books, but a big no no on the consulting with friends and using endgame tablebases.  Just not allowed.  You're right though that if a player isn't consulting a database and doing a little research, they are at a disadvantage.

Daily is the way to improve. Use the analysis feature and play out every move. Make strong moves. If you don’t find a strong move, improve
A piece position.

Good points!  I use chess opening books and the chess opening explorer here with a personal rule not to look more than 12 moves into the game, and usually a lot less.  I want to learn the best opening moves and the slow game helps me, but eventually I want it to be my own game.

I also explore variations on my own on a separate, online chess board, where no hints, etc. are provided.
