What went well?

  • I have been writing these weekly updates for 20 weeks straight!
  • I had my first “easy” game in a long time. I won all 5 of my rapid games this week and got back to 1200

What could have gone better?

  • It was a slow week with Christmas. Time to get back to the grind.
  • Aimchess updated their design which now is great but meant I had no personalized lessons for a couple of days.

What will I try next?

  • Keep working on The Soviet Chess Primer book, which is going well. I like the slow and steady approach I am taking.
  • Play a longer (higher stakes) training game
