    Learn to play like a 1250 to 1350ish fish.

    Detailed explanations for how to leave pieces en prise, looking two moves ahead, losing tempo combinations, accidental mates and much more.

    Is there a chapter on playing when half - asleep, (whilst thinking you're wide awake) seeing really good moves and then forgetting what they were, and getting distracted by music at exactly the wrong moment? If you need a hand I could ghost - write that one for you.

    Since you brought up mine, I thought it only reasonable I did the same. But since we seem to be incompatible here, perhaps we should just leave each other alone. Or maybe I misunderstand your jokes?

    torunn,

    The OP was making a joke so you are not ruining anything. Did you think she was serious about writing a book?

    I was never much concerned on here about who talked to me and who didn't entirely up to yourself.

    I am still open to any questions you may have about any of my posts.

    Sorry, I wouldn't learn anything from your book. I'm already a natural at all of those.
