Despite being neither a good player nor good at tactics I was able to get a 2200+ rating at chess.com. That rating is greatly inflated. I have yet to get above 1800 at chess24 for example.

Re: NL Loki's Chess Improvement and Motivation Thread

day 24

at exercise 1028, the puzzles are getting insane now, i can see the initial ideas, but i'm always shocked by a counter resource or variation that I did not initially consider when i see the solutions. I'm getting mindf**ked over and over again. I'm going to try to power through the remaining 100 puzzles in the weekend!

Re: NL Loki's Chess Improvement and Motivation Thread

day 28

Finally done all 1128 exercises of the woodpecker method! Took 4 weeks basically... So this completes the first cycle of the exercise, I will have to redo them in half the time in the next cycle, not sure if I'm looking forward to that... But for now I will take at least a week break

Re: NL Loki's Chess Improvement and Motivation Thread

How many hours did it take you to complete the exercises? Did you already notice a difference in your tactical ability between when you started and now? Are the exercises hand-picked for the Woodpecker method or do you think it works with any tactics puzzle collection?

Re: NL Loki's Chess Improvement and Motivation Thread

I just lost to an online game to the 1100 in our weekly swiss, he played at 95.43 CAPS and destroyed me

I think 95 caps would equal a 2350 player. Sounds suspicious!
