Training Update

First let me say that I need to make a more concerted effort to post information, updates, and positions every day.

In the meantime I have been hard at work. I really can’t stress how much of a godsend Chessable have been with this.

For example, this morning I woke up and solved close to 100 tactics on my phone on the Chessable app.

The courses I have currently are 1001 Exercises for Beginners (tactics for somewhere around 1500-1600ish level) 1001 Exercises for Club Players (tactics for up to 2000-2200 maybe) and 100 Endgames You Must Know.

I have not been solely limited to Chessable however.

Yesterday a friend of mine and I spent a couple of hours working on guess the move with this game:

I recommend this game as it’s not well known and it has some interesting moments. Here is the pgn:

Copy that, put it in Chessbase, set it on Training mode and have fun!
