@dvk that will happen the longer you do the puzzles. It really improved my game. I use chesstempo, lichess and chess.com for puzzles. Like lichess the best but chesstempo is great about labeling tactics and discussion.
@Snommel_ I’m on Lichess & chess.com right now but have yet to check out chesstempo, thanks for the tip!
@dvk The puzzles help me improve, but it's not always immediate. Sometimes I grind at puzzles for a week or more before I see the results in my games. Of course there is more to improving than just doing tactics. Learning openings and strategic ideas is always helpful too. I am only 1300 right now, but trying to improve as well.
@dvk What rating are you? My friend, @theblackatlantic on Twitter is trying to get 2000 ELO before he turns 40. Taking his chess studies really seriously and tweeting a lot about it. Might be worthwhile to follow him.
@stefthoen Sweet, would love to follow his journey.
I really only got back into the game last week and discovered how I played when I was younger is barely called chess, so my rating is super low. Playing every day now so give me a few months to settle on my actual rating. 🙂
