Nobody is safe to answer this question unless he or she is a GM. You definitely need to search an answer in chess games. You can analyse by yourself or by using chess engines or you can easily find many videos on the internet. One of my favourites is the game between Vladimir Kramnik and Garry Kasparov when Kasparov sacrificed his Queen on move 12! It ...

I would recommend Chess Tutor Step 1. It is a training software that starts with the most basic level and goes until 1800 rating, more or less. The software costs around $20. When you finish you can follow with Chess Tutor Step 2 and Chess Tutor Step 3. Even they have several languages available. I have been a chess trainer for 30 years, and I have never ...

Being stuck for 5 days is not a long period of time. Players get stuck at their levels for months or even years. It could just be that you got a particularly hard sequence of puzzles, or that you didn't sleep well, or many different reasons. There is no "perfect" way to calculate. If there was, chess would be a very uninteresting game. You could just give ...
