Re: Frenchie501 - Tactics training - morning of 15/8/09 [13:20]
Cheers for the advice student...its very true what you say and my coach says the same. As I was doing the video, I was trying to speed things along, and felt pressurised to get the right answer fast so I could continue. That plus I felt embarassment by not knowing the answer immediately.
My preference is to use a real board to study tactics because I look at things as I do in a proper game. As with most things internet, its difficult to treat them with the same level of respect - take online poker for example where people take far more risks as its easier to press a button, same in online chess its easier to push pieces around making mistakes as you invest less time...
It was a trial video for myself to see if I could do tactics on the fly, and its obvious I cant unless I stay silent for a few minutes each time, which makes the video unwatchable and embarassing for me at the same time.
I just wish i could get some of these mating themes in my games...they never crop up!
