Chess Tactics Server vs. CT-ART 3.0 It seems to me that the Chess Tactics Server at -> chess.emrald.net, being a free service, makes CT-ART 3.0 redundant. Agreements? Disagreements?

Disagreements I enjoy much more CT-ART 3.0 than the Chess Tactics Server. The Chess Tactics Server train our pattern recognition skill (the ability to sense a tactic and guts feel the right move), I don't believe that anybody can compute the variations in the 10 seconds allowed. On the other hand, CT-ART 3.0 permits to take your time and evaluate the opponent answers to your move. In this case, we train our evaluation and calculation skills.

For instance, one of my problems at chess is that I never compute variation and even control if my move gives opportunities to my opponent. I just play by guts feeling. Training on Chess Tactics Server just strengthens this wrapped manner of playing. Additionally, I increased my rating at Chess Tactics Server since I started using CT-ART 3.0.

My two cents,
