Chessy FeelingsOctober 14, 2021
I have recently come back to playing chess. I have actually started studying a bit, not only solving puzzles and playing but looking at openings and some pro games. I have to say I am enjoying it massively, in a way I never had when I just played my father and lost endlessly. I still cannot beat him, but hopefully soon enough.
After starting at the mandatory 1200, I plummetted down to the high 800s, which is when I started paying for the gold tier at chess.com. At 3 euros per month it is not expensive, and I can get all the games I play analysed. It is the best way I have found to improve other than studying the openings and trying them out numerous times. That has landed me this week in the mid 1100s, which is good but not great. Let’s see if I can keep it up and make it to the 1600-1800s by the end of the year!
