Introducing myself

Post by fanat on April 14th 2009, 1:40 pm

This forum seems like a great idea to discuss the ICS experience.

I've been playing chess seriously for about a year. ICS looked interesting and I thought I would give it a try. I'm now almost done with month 2.

I mostly play on the internet (chess.com to be exact) and my internet rating is around 1900. Obviously the internet rating is inflated by 400-500 points at least!

My goal is to become a stronger player by the end of ICS and then will see what's next. Maybe some OTB tournaments.

Thank you.

This looks like a very nice and well organized forum. I am sure more people will join but it will take time.

A late welcome to this forum!

Why only by then end? Why not during the course itself? Laughing
Did you set a target rating, a rating you wish to have or to closeby when you finished this course? Or is any rating higher then 1900 ok?
