How you got so strong? My goal in Daily is 1800, you are already 2000+.

It's easy. She understands tactics better, knows what pieces to trade, looks for combinations, can think more than likely 5 moves or more ahead. These things that a beginner like myself will never understand.

I improved a little my tactical skills in the last years, but I still have to learn a lot. If I would start my chess career again I would focus on tactics and endgame in the first 5 years.

You can't complain, it's not against site rules

Some people playing Daily Chess in a tournament try to play as slow as possible. If they have 3 days to make a move they usually wait until the last hours to play, even in positions where they have a forced move.
I guess they think that they have a bigger chance to win doing so, as some players could die during the tournament or forfeit because they are bored. In a current tournament there is a guy who didn’t finish a single game, and all the other players have to finish only the games against him. Somehow ridiculous.

It can be frustrating at times; however, as already mentioned, if there are three days to move, there are three days to move. Some people do need to take most of that time due to other off-line commitments. When they are in a forced move situation, you can always use the conditional move button. After your move, select it and when the screen opens enter their move and your reply. They may make their next move right away - or wait another three days! It's worth a try.

I have also played games where my opponent moved too quickly and by so doing sometimes made poor choices. (Not that I have ever complained about that, as it helped me greatly!)

So, the moral is, if you join a three day time control, don't be too upset if opponents take the three days. On the other hand, don't make your moves in 3 hours when you have more time to really find a better move. Emanuel Lasker, "When you see a good move, look for a better one."
