    Nice work.
    Glad to see someone is having some luck these days.
    I think one of the most important things to do if you want to improve in chess is knowing your tactics, checkmates, etc.

    p.s. Good luck on reaching 1700!

    Getting better is a great feeling. As you become a stronger player don't forget where you origionally came from. One of the best qualities that a great chess player retains is humbleness. Remember that at each stage you now no more than you use to, but without the people that you beat you would not be where you are. The journey is great and difficult. Play well and study hard.

    1600 on CTS ? Wow, well done. Now, don't go for 1700 RHP, go for 1800 since you are strong tactican now !!

    Finally some positivity on CTS again. The last few weeks every time I logged in, within the first 3-5 tries I had already lost 5 rating points (while really I thought I had a good sharpness when logging in) and the rest of the session consisted of trying to "repair" (often that would mean I would lose another 5-10 points before I decided it wasn't going to happen). Before that I had just reached a rating peak of 2081. Every session afterwards has been a disaster.

    But now today I just finished a streak of 47 correct ones (ended by a classical silly CTS mistake ) while picking up +15 rating points. Back on the long way to 2100...
