My book study has begun. I am currently working on Silmans Complete Endgame Course. In addition to that title, I also am working on a few different tactics books during my lunch breaks at work. It is important to constantly practice the fundamentals and be well schooled in them. You simply CANNOT build complex chess knowledge on a crappy foundation. What seems difficult and sometimes impossible at the chessboard is actually just a combination of fundamental chess ideas. No matter how baffling and genius a chess move may seem, it is always based on these kernals, unwavering chess truths. So right now, I'm putting in the grunt work and building up my basics. A lot of players end up hitting a rating wall because they do not truly understand chess. By working hard, I will be able to acheive my rating goal more quickly.
