I’m really struggling in these chess games since I’ve come back to playing online. I forgot many of the (few) things I learned when I started, and I think all the players I’m playing have gotten better, judging from their ratings. But I’m enjoying playing again, and provided I keep my number of concurrent games reasonable, I’ll probably continue to play this time.
Learning to play chess online has been very rewarding, not only because I discovered how cool chess is, but because I think my doing it helped get a number of my friends playing chess again. I don’t think many of them were actively playing before I posted about it on Pipeline, but most of them kept playing after I stopped. So props to me on that.
I just need to catch up, easier said than done.
