OTB and Gameknot
I seem to find it much easier to beat strong players OTB then here. OTB I can beat players upto and over 2000, yet here I stuggle with anyone over 1800.

OTB I tend to steer the game into complex positions, a lot harder to do on GK.

OTB I spot things better and because of GameKnot now make exceedingly strong moves. (IE no pawn crapping around, go for the kill!!!)

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.

put 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.
