    Have a look at your game against LKIERA Game id 2398866. Notice how a knight fork attacked your king and rook at the same time. What could you have done to prevent this? How will you prevent a similar attack in the future? Did you attack when you needed to defend? Did you have to resign? Learning from your own games is very important.

    TACTICS

    Try a website like: http://chess.emrald.net/ to practice tactics. Or just search for chess tactics and see what you can find out.


    ENDINGS

    For endings get to know the basic checkmates and study some king and pawn endings and some rook endings to start with. Learn about "the opposition"

    OPENINGS

    Have a look at several of the well known openings such as; ruy lopez and giocco piano for white and Kings Indian and Nimzo Indian for black - there are many to chose from but most important is to try and understand the principles behind the first 5 or 6 moves in each of these opening. In time you will chose your favourites for deeper study.

    STRATEGY

    Play through some annotated grandmaster games.

    Theres a lot to do - it takes time - good luck.

    An automatic language translator is not a method to improve the language. You get rid of some errors but introduce others.

    If you cannot make a move in the required time then you should lose the game as in otb chess if your time is up you lose so better to stick to the rules or why bother playing chess at all.

    Probably not. Not till you stop dropping pieces at least.
