    I am going to do the 1000 puzzles in 64/32/16/8/4/2/1 says test over the 4 months period and see if it works. This might help stop some arguing whether it is good or not. I would like someone else with an OTB grade to do it to with me. Anyone up for it?

    I hope you have a ton of time on your hands and good luck! I started last year in May 2004 and I took months off because of school. I started up again after taking 2 months off doing round 5. Got about 2 more long hours left and i'll be done round 5. I'm taking much longer to complete round 5 compared to round 4 because i took 2 months off and then 3 months before that. So Round 5 will probably take me 13-14 hours compared to 12 for round 4.

    So basically don't miss any days and your improve a lot.

    OTB 1728. I started the puzzles and OTB play at the same time so I guess you could say its got me to 1728 after 1.5 years.

    I havent got one yet . I was about to ask is there any free puzzle collections online?

    There are tons of free ones but they aren't organize in any order. I got mine from books and online and stuff and put them into a word document and wasted 90 hours doing that. So far i've only spend 70 hours on them and i'm done round 5 almost. Whats a waste. Just buy ct-art 3.0 its $35 and it keeps the time you spent on each puzzle also which is a plus.

    Why am I talking to you after what you wrote to me?

    You made up this chess lesson thread in hopes that people would respond to it, like they do to bowmann chess thread. But no one gave a crap (your words) and so you got pissed.

    You obviously have a thang for bowman. Not thing, but thang. You don't want me to start proving this because there are a lot of threads you have about bowmann this and that.

    Wrong - I made it because I hd been on a chess scotland junior training day thing where we were getting teached by 4 IM's and Jacob Aaragard (who is very close to earning GM). So I suggest YOU stfu before you get owned
