More Threats in Chess

I haven’t been keeping the notebook up because for the past few weeks my chess training has become very simplistic.

1. I continue to practice tactics on chesstempo.com until I get 3 incorrect answers which usually takes 15-20 minutes.  Solving tactical puzzles in this fashion is based on David Pruess’  New Way of Training Tactics.

2. I am playing more often, and when I do I am focused on the threats on the board.

3. I’m not reading any books right now, but I am reviewing my played games and addressing any deficiencies by referring to reference manuals. For example, if I lose a King and pawn endgame I’ll refer to Mueller’s Endgame Fundamentals book and so on.

I feel that this threat based play is helping my game out, and I have posted a 2nd part to the original threats post on begin chess and more will be coming shortly as I experiment with my new found thought process.

  1. Isn’t the opposite also an alternative? “Use CT until you fail three problems”
