using an real chess set in comparison with a computer screen one

Post by chesstiger on November 18th 2015, 10:51 am

I think I read in the introduction that one needs to use a real chess set instead of looking at the computer screen diagram. This because you play your games in real life also over the board and so you are working on your board visualization skills aswell. But aren't we all lazy and just look with a blank stare at our computer screen? Or are all of you so disciplined that you actually set up (use) a real board?

If you do use a real board then what kind? Is the size a real tournament board or just such little board that one takes with you when traveling?

I use tournament size pieces and board. Someone recently recommended that I have a second, smaller board to go through the annotations. I might try that to see if it helps.

I used a real tournament board and used a computer for annotations and variations. This is NOT recommended by ICS though.

I use real board. Sometimes I put the game in PGN when I want to keep some notes for future.
