Post David's Training Journal (2)
Same person here, forgot the pw to the old account :P, but I've been using CVTV for years now (5 I think), and it's a great site!

I've greatly improved since I first started playing, around the same time I joined here, and am probably a weak B class player now.
Planning on joining a club soon to play some OTB games. Up until now, I have been 100% self-taught online. Mostly blitz and rapid games. I'm starting to play 30 min+ in preparation for what I consider "real chess," i.e. long time controls OTB.

I'm quite eager to obtain an actual rating.
I'm also open to friendly (or serious) challenges on:

FICS: whoslayedgoliath
ChessCube: dinozhou
chess.com: whoslayedgoliath

I've played on yahoo! and facebook as well, because it's always fun to beat up on weaker players, but those aren't real chess sites.

Back again for my yearly update! Finally got an "official" rating, unfortunately not fide, but it'll suffice for now.

1650 CFC! (Canada), although i expect that to go up fast after a couple more tournaments.

i still suck at tactics. 1700 CTS 1800 chesstempo.
any tips for improving that efficiently? or should i just hammer them im until those ratings go up?

after about a week of training, got my chesstempo rating up to over 1950! a lot of the masters on that site are rated around 2200, so that's what i'm aiming for now.

Recently beat a couple experts in classical games! Playing in the World Open in less than a month now--so excited!! Funny enough, my chesstempo rating hasnt gone up at all (though it did peak temporarily at around 2050). I suspect I am already about 1900, though my rating doesn't show it.
