Don’t call me grandmaster just yet

good morning all

I’ve played a lof chess lately. Like - a lot. To the point where I look at people and I see the possible movements of a knight.

It’s bad.

But if only I were good at chess.

Truth is, I’m pretty bad at it. After more than 1,000 games I’m still somewhere between a 430 and 370 rating. I attribute a few reasons to this:

  1. I don’t know any moves. At all
  2. I move to quick. I lways play the five-minute games. By the end I still have a good three minutes to go whilst the other player runs out of time. But it leads to many errors.
  3. I count wrong. Take the knight, for example. I always miscount how many places it’s going. This leads me to a lot of trouble.
  4. I get the colours mixed up on the board. Sometimes I think a white square is a dark square. Sometimes I think a dark square is a white square. Both are problematic!

There ya have it. Fitzie sucks at chess.
