Not once I made some CTS inspired move in a blitz game only to learn that it was not nearly as plausable as I initially thought.
Chess Tempo is something in between, i ...[text shortened]... r too slow. I am starting to think that the last is more serious option for ambitious players.
it is too fast for my taste. Have you tried chess tempo standard? I think it's the best way to go after a certain level. This was advised by the greatest: take a relatively complicated position in front of you, and analyse to the last drop. Chess tempo standard is excellent for this, and the positions are realistic, because they are from real games. (computer generated games).
For me, the best ratio is 5% of my tactics training time in CTS and the rest in chess tempo standard is the best. that 5% is usually for "getting in the mood" before a long FICS game or whenever I feel a little tired for serious calculation.
