Happy Slowmouse

Quite happy with CTS as training device now. Got 98% success while rating climbed to 1200 - Slowmouse now 200 behind Mousetrapper. Still, one nightmare every 40 moves is too much. Would mean one blunder every game. Taking time allows that you really learn. And the problems present a lot of themes, sometimes it is just the simple decision «can I take back?» or «how parry this check?». One main advantage over the Circles is that there is much less repetition on CTS. More variations. More patterns. On CTS I can do X-Ray Scans, Target Scans and Filtering, blundercheck, Candidate Move Evaluation, all this with ever changing and always interesting positions.

I wonder if a speedmouse is on it's way too?:)

Mousetrapper is speedmouse. Taking a little hiatus now. Maybe comes back later. Wow you get near 1500. Not bad. Congrats Tempo!

I don't worry too much about the "nightmares." Many of mine are due to mouse errors like clicking a different destination square than I was intending.
