76 ( +1 | -1 ) Inspiration- How do u keep it up?Ive landed on a level of tricks ,playing for fast development as white , winning some games losing others. For me only the beauty of the game makes me feel good. I lack patience and positional understanding but most of all the inspiration to really find the best move,and that makes me lose vs strong players. I c that most players like myself use maybe 1 min to use the analyze board feature to make a move, but this also isnt enough to make a good move and I feel it would be better if the analyze feature was gone and I would just think while watching the board. This feature actually makes me even less patient - just looking for tricks... The thrill is gone ! pls help! :(
33 ( +1 | -1 ) You're still behaving..........as if you were playing OTB. This is Correspondence Chess (though it's not called that). So: Log off, set up a board, and move the pieces around. There's no need to return for several hours, even till next day. One result of this is that you'll come to view your games objectively, as if you were analysing someone else's games.
31 ( +1 | -1 ) To keep up inspiration, I read a little history about a particular chess grandmaster and play through a few of his games. When you do enough of that, you begin to aquire positional skills. It's almost subliminal ... you see the good positions enough and you start to play them. Sounds simplistic, but I've found it true for me.
