I will never do tactical exercise again.

ABC_of_EVERYTHING

I cannot sense two move tactics. Therefore, I always fall to two move tactics. It is happening even in daily chess. I have made my mind to not do any tactical exercise again. Those exercises only teach you how to have a tunnel vision and so not an efficient way to view the whole board to absorb the position to sense everything.

Well, you must have some ability to see two move tactics if you have scored 23 in 5 minute Puzzle Rush.

Puzzle rush is good and I am not against it. And I have not done timed puzzle rush sometime for now. 

But what I am talking here is about flat tactical exercise. Doing tactics is not getting translated to my real game. What I should do instead of tactics is to absorb the position. That's my 2 cent.

It takes time and experience to "sense" those tactics.

 

It takes me many many tries to finally launch good ones of my own. I have launched many failed attempts in tactics again and again just for the fun and for the experience of it. Even in positions where obviously sacrificing material is not recommended, I sometimes proceed with it anyway and find weird ways to justify my unsound sacrifice.

 

Don't worry, that moment will eventually come for you as well.

How can you reach:

  • Best 5 min 23
  • Best 3 min 17
  • Best Survival 39

 

And not be able to make any 2move tactics with all the time in the world?

May the force be with me. I am bad when dealing opponent tactical threat because I am train to attack others rather than spoting opponent threat. The only way to cure this disease is get a feel for possible tactical maneuver. Those tactics that I discovered stick with my brain but it is only those tactics that I practice without understanding deserted me.

Puzzle rush is good. It activated my basic tactical awareness. But it doesn't teach you many things. It is those many things that cause almost all of my defeat this weak.
