Day 19

Today I did 10 problems from "365 Ways to Checkmate." I have been playing on gameknot, yahoo, and pogo as of late, and I have had good results. I often invite or challenge more highly rated players than myself, but I usually have to play someone who is at my level or a little less than 100 points below my rating. I am wondering whether or not the tactics training can have such an immediate effect, or if I am playing lousy chess players, or if I am just getting lucky. I think that it might be that I am just looking for tactics in games against mediocre players. I can only hope that all of a sudden I am a great tactician (I wish...).
