    i have 'discovered' the analysis board...i always knew it was there but
    never bothered with it....i started to use it when i joined my first
    tournament..the 0-999 speedy christmas...now my 'hasty' and bad
    moves have been cut down drastically and i do not often lose a piece
    to a knight fork as i can see it coming with the analysis board...for those of you who have not used this tool i do very much recommend
    it...it fills in the holes in your game where you made quick and unreflective moves....i am now 10 games ahead of my nearest tournament competitor and only 2 of those games were from a timeout
    becuase a tourney player never played...i could not have gotten so far
    playing my old way...

    I love the analysis board. It makes difficult combinations so much easier. I've started using it recently and I no longer miss mate in one :p

    you see....i have emotional moments of brilliant play...i was reading
    oppenheimer's biography thru the winter and spring ( a christmas
    present...it is american prometheus ) so i played better as i was in
    the company of a great man...then i became despondent and i quit
    the site...resigning all my games...so now i struggle back ( no i do
    not see a psychiatrist or take drugs...i just struggle back....anyway i
    am getting off the mark...i will soon be back at about 1150 in about
    two months and that is my skill level....but i may take you on mr. ravello...i took on mctayto of pc's were made for chess last week...he
    was 300 points above me and i took him to a draw.....)...
