27 ( +1 | -1 ) GK analyse feature harms OTB playing. It's completely diferent. So in GK you analyse your positions much much faster and safely. The great advantage I see in GK improving my game is simple the hudge amount of games I can play against with very diferent oponents.

42 ( +1 | -1 ) I normallyput all my difficult games up on a real board. When I first started at GK my rating was dropping like a rock. But now I am rising again. When I am not sure of myself I take out the real pieces again. I have difficulties reading 2D. I am now 1300+ again. But it is still not my OTB rating of ten years ago, that was 1865. I am sure to reach that again, because I joind a club again, and I am following a course, and studying openings.
