    Okay, these are very popular, so anyone who wants to skip the queue can join this one. it isn't really high-power, but hopefully it will help.
    Start by posting your acceptance if you want to join up, and also post 3 of your games for me to help you with, but finished (I probably am not allowed to help games in progress). it would also be helpful if you told me whether you can understand chess notation.

    When you have accepted, start by posting what White threatens to do with their next move after:
    9. Bb3
    before 9:00 p.m. tomorrow night, when I intend to continue playing.

    That game is in progress too, hence should not be discussed.

    Also, but only if you have the time, examine this positional game and tell me who's up at the end of the notation. By the way, if you accept you still don't have to, I just want to see who really wants the training.

    Fine, if you say so, but I already know exactly what to do, if you study the position you should too. In fact I've already made the killer move.

    7. ... Be2 is not a legal move.

    I assume you meant Be7. Black's3thd, 4th, 5th and 6th moves were weak. On each occasion, d5 was better.

    It doesn't matter. Game was in process at the moment you posted. That is not done.

    I know- I've changed it. Do you want any of this tutoring?

    Sorry. I never check anyone's profile. He was hanging around the thread. Besides, I only suffer from lack of concentration. OTB, i haven't been beaten since August.

    I know. I just gave people an easy answer as long as they bothered. But I am suprised you actually went through the game. I did the analysis board to make it and everything.

    Well, then that mate in 3 puzzle shouldn't be a problem for you. It is a beauty indeed.

    I know it shouldn't, but it is. Puzzles for me have to be fairly easy.

    Besides, this thread isn't supposed to be about you arguing with me.
