Hello sancho - are you still very busy? I seem to remember you posting funny stories a while back.

You make me curious.

Sancho Pawnza said...

You saying I'm no longer funny? :(
Just slightly busy.

Mousetrapper said...

Wow impressive percentages! Seems we have another super hero among us.

Sancho Pawnza said...

They are only mates-in-two at the moment.
I'm kind of ticked that I'm not at 100% for all of the Cycles.

Hi Sancho,
What was your rating when you started with tactical training? I'm making a list.

Margriet said...

Good to see you work so hard.
An exemple for us all!

Hi Sancho, great you are so dedicated to the plan :). Just wondering.. which puzzle set are you doing?

Sancho Pawnza said...

I ignored the problem sets (i.e. "Luring", "Pins", etc.) and rearranged the database by number of moves. Then I created mini databases using the newly arranged order and proceeded from there.
This of course was my approach, but if someone is just starting out with tactical themes I would recommend that they work through the disk at least once using the "theme" method to familiarize themselves with the various approaches. Because these are the basic building blocks that are used not only in mates but other attacks as well.

Hi. I decided to come back and see how all of you guys are doing. It seems that we have a lot more people than before. I plan on rejoining you guys this summer, which will officially start the 10th. I can't wait. I think that I will start to so some exercises again and will get back into the groove.

Sancho, It's good to hear that you are doing well. I hope that everyone else is doing well too.

Just fyi, I will begin to post at again.
