I have been playing chess for many years, but only just recently (the past couple years) have I begun serious study and a plan for improvement. I prefer OTB but have little time or opportunity for that. I find blitz games addictive but frustrating, and I usually don't do well with them. In online (i.e. correspondence) games, I freely use reference books, opening databases, and the analysis tool, but I never use a chess engine or an endgame database or tablebase.
