What went well?

What could have gone better?

  • I played too many Blitz games. That time could have been better spent studying.
  • I lost about 2/3 of my games last week. I initially thought it was because I was starting to learn a new repertoire, but I lost 80% of my games as white, and that hasn’t changed much. I do think that spending time on Chessable and Blitz has impacted my Rapid rating. My rating dropped below 1400 briefly.
  • I did not spend much time on the books or homework my coach gave me.

What will I try next?

  • Get through the 1. d4 quick starter chapter in KIS.
  • Take my time when playing rapid games online, and no blitz this week.
