Played chess when I was young & took it up again a few years back.
Don't study chess, any improvement I might make is through playing games.
I make multiple moves a day, mostly on my iPhone. It's a great way to play! And I can play all day every day!
What is this hangup people have about taking time-outs? Chess is a game played with a clock. I will take time-outs, unless you give me a good reason not to.
