Reporting in

Sunday 0 tactics
Monday 20 in ct-art

After recent friendly nudges from BDK and J'adoube about when am I going to be done the 7 circles. I decided to put in figures of how many tactics I do each day whether it is 0 or 100. I do find this helpful .

    Tak, keep playing your openings. Don't listen to the other knights who tell you to move on to "better" openings. Know that even Spassky was successful with the King's Gambit when everybody else thought it was dead.

    Failures of my opening play has more to do with my play of the opening than my opening choices. The King Gambit and Traxler has early attacking chances and thats how I like to play. Whether it is or is not sound at the highest level of play (Super GM/Fritz) is not of importance. Besides I enjoy the trash talk . At some point I would like to learn how to play the center game/ danish gambit well. (this I view as a trashy gambit but potentially dangerous) I also have an interest in the Scotch Gambit which I may play more of.
