What went well? New high is Chess.com puzzles I finished the ChessMood Tactics Ninja course and whatever was currently available for the BluderProof course (it was just released and has more content coming the next couple months) Following the advice of my coach, I played a lot more games I got through Part 3 of Silman’s Complete Endgame Course (1200-1399). I will work on part 4 next week. What could have gone better? I’ve been starting to keep track of notes from every game I play to look for common themes. One so far (with just a few games) is that I don’t always pause to think about my moves, and just play on instinct. That is when I get into trouble. What will I try next? Chess Vacation! I will (most likely) give up my 350+ day chessable streak, play no games, and really limit my study for a week while spending time with my family. I’m ready to rest and reset!
