Chess amateur from Belgium

Post by marcp70 on August 24th 2010, 3:07 am

Hello,

I am 46 years old, I live in Belgium. I play chess since my 7. I never played in club.

I am on the 11th month of the courses and I am very happy of my progress.

I can now dominate my "Chess Master from Saitek" (my trusted opponent)from time to time. And that, just with the strategic ideas learned in the courses.

I always liked the tactics exercises, by solving puzzles and all softwares like "total chess training". So the tactical exercises in the courses are, are not a very great problems for me. But the positional problems are often obvious for me. I am lack of fundamental chess view.

Now I hope that courses will give me another approach of the plays of chess.

I sooooo wish I had never given up chess in my 20s. Things were a lot easier to learn back then!!
