Anyone into chess problems/tactics?

Anyone doing tactics at chess com? I suspect this is going to be a very lonely thread.


sorry, I don’t really play chess at that level of skill. I chop and change pieces as per the immediately possibility per turn, anything else is a mental construct I’m not versed in :confused:

I do tactics OTB.

Used to do tactics online.

I’m still not a good club player.

What’s that?

Well, according to chess com I’m better at tactics than at playing, but to be honest I think tactics ratings at the place are inflated.

Over the board or On the board.


My middle game and end game is just okay. I’m horrible at openings. Definitely a 1. D4 player. :joy:


I might do it one day, but currently I am busy with other projects.
I do have a registered user on, and I often play against the computer on the site.

Nothing wrong with 1. d4. But lots of players think there is something really wrong with the petrov defence, one of my favourites.

I agree if a player can do some serious, early positional development.

I do. But my online elo is very low. 900-1200. I don’t have an official rating.

I don’t myself. But my mate is into chess. They play it like nearly every day online. And I’m keen to play them one day to see if I can beat them, doubt it.

Is that for tactics?

Maybe not at first, but some people are just naturally good at it. Worth having a try.


I just play online. I often make a brilliant move, only to lose on the spot.


More power to y’all who can play Chess. I’ve never even tried it. My dad tried to teach me though

I have no idea why this reminds me of Queen’s Gambit.

I haven’t seen that show, looks too uplifting and rock&roll for me, but what do I know

no, for normal playing.

I used to.
But i lost interest in chess.
