I exceeded the 10 hour target by a large margin this week, doing about 16 hours 50 minutes. Most of the time was spent playing games; in the British Rapidplay at the weekend and the local Durham league on Thursday. Here’s the breakdown:
Tuesday 16th: 15 minutes PlayChess tactics training + 5 minutes reviewing mistakes
Wednesday 17th: 20 minutes TrainingBot, 2 hours group lesson with FM David Eggleston (with two other students of similar strength to me)
Thursday 18th: 20 minutes Chess Tempo, 3 hours playing a local league game
Friday 19th: 15 minutes PlayChess tactics training + 5 minutes reviewing mistakes, ~30 minutes checking some lines in the King’s Indian Defense (Sämisch and Four Pawns Attack)
Saturday 20th: 30 minutes watching Maurice Ashley’s ‘The Secret To Chess’, 4 hours playing rapid (30 minutes each) games
Sunday 21st: 4 hours playing rapid games, 30 minutes looking at Fighting the Anti-King’s Indians by Yelena Dembo
I expect it to be difficult to make the ten hour target this week, as I have a few bits of uni work due in. What chess training I manage is likely to be focused on reviewing my games from the past week.
