Finding my way in the chessdevelopment- and training jungle in order to improve my rating.

Still busy with Polgars middlegame problems in order to find out why these are so difficult. 4 hours per problem is de facto the average time I need to investigate all ins and outs with the aid of the solution and the computer!
Every problem has a certain amount of basic tactical motifs. It is doable to find these. The complexity stems from the interference between motifs.
Say, you fork a bishop and a knight with a pawn. Simple and winning. But if the bishop can participate in a counterattack, this interference makes it complex.
And so I'm trying at each problem to chart all basic motifs and all interferences.
