GOALS Do you have goals in chess?
What are they"
Mine:
1. Have fun
1a. Just to improve to be the best I can be.
2. Develop or discover "my" style .. I still don't know if I am better suited to tactical or positional type play.
3. Learn some different openings .. I've been stuck on the Ruy Lopez for years and my defence is purely reactionary to the position I'm looking at. Don't know different types of defences to use against different openings .. need study in this area bad.
4. Improve my endgame play .. study, study
5. Breakthrough into the top 1000 rated at GK

My goal is..... To slow my game down. I am used to playing fischer time (5/3) and it is just to fast...
Also I tend to be too aggressive for my own good sometimes, I want to work on that

1.To be able to decern the key elements of a position and figure out a reasonable plans.
2. To be patient in my attacks (stop wanting to cash in too soon)
3. To become a calmer more composed player (stop playing variations that i know are silly but look too damn interesting :-) )
4.Develop my positional feel.
5.Develop my endgame so i can more easily decide to simplify into endgames that i know i'll win
6.Keep myself from studying openings too much.(I'm not strong enought a player to win a slightly superior position.So why not spend more time on things that will help me when i run out of opening moves)

Well ... I started playing serious chess about a year ago when I turned 30, and am teaching myself. I've made lots of progress quick, but now am afraid of "the plateau" .

My goals:

1. Stay somewhat consistent with my learning and practice.

2. Climb 150 rating points a year until I reach 2000.

My practice consists of

1: tactics (the TASC cd tutor is great)
2: positional studies
3: grandmaster game studies (which is how I learn openings)
4: PLAY! (and try to consistently review my games with a chess engine)

I'm amazed at how much more I "see' now when I play a game.

My chess goals? Much the same as in my study of the Karma Sutra.

To achieve every position at least once!

Ufortunately, it's impossible in one and looking more and more unlikely in the other. :-)
