    I think my biggest weakness is my inability to curb my impulsiveness.  I have a tendency to see my mistake only after I have completed the move by which time it is too late to retract.  Learning to repeatedly evaluate a position even when all seems well before making the move is my biggest challenge.

    All of them!
    Endgames, positional plays, tactics, openings and time management!

    Time management, but that's because I move too quickly.

    Calculation is tricky business! You convince yourself you've done the maths right, only to fall miserably into a losing position!

    I tend to tilt quite often. can beat a player rated 2100 easily one day and lose to a player rated 1700 the other.

    Do you not think that you are a good chess player just the way you are?

    Endgames, particularly rook + pawn endgames or queen + pawn endgames.

    Not sure what passes for passive and solid. Also not sure what is the point of points.

    Overconfidence against a passive but solid position.

    Successful "Violent Moves".  Proper sacrificial play is not only exciting but game winning.  I am a conservative player who wants to be able to play more like Tal.  :-)

    I actually choose to have a good internet connection by doing the best things necessary to make it so.

    It's better than moving too slow and losing the game by time.

    I always fail to notice tactics, and can't initiate on it. That's why my dad always beats me.
