    what are the best online resources for sub 1200 players

    Probably Blog 4.

    It's fun to read, most is comprehensible to anyone and a big focus on missed shots and blunders, which is precisely what is needed at that level.

    chesstempo.com

    Practise tactics, do them slowly and focus on getting them correct.

    I like chess24.com....there are a lot of videos you can watch on various openings. Lots of games if you like fast (blitz) type games...good live stream coverage of major tournament, etc.

    Some of my favourites:

    Tim Brennan's "Tactics Time" blog / newsletter:
    http://tacticstime.com/

    For openings - very useful if you end up with a lousy position after just a few moves and want to see where you went wrong:
    http://www.365chess.com/opening.php

    For playing over old games (new games are there as well, but I mostly use it for older ones):
    http://www.chessgames.com/

    For amazing stories about the history of chess and chess players:
    http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/

    Streetfighting Chess. Proving that the art of annotating chess games is not dead!
    http://www.streetfightingchess.com/

    Another chess tactics server. I haven't used this for a while as I tend to play blitz games instead:
    http://chess.emrald.net/
