Weekly Progress Report #19

I managed the 12 hour target comfortably again this week, doing about 20 hours and 50 minutes.  The majority of this time was spent playing and analysing at a 4NCL weekend, as described here.  Here’s the breakdown:

Monday: 10 minutes CT-Art

Tuesday: 15 minutes playing a 15-minute pool game at ICC, 45 minutes playing and analysing 15-minute games on PlayChess

Wednesday: 2 hour group lesson with FM David Eggleston, ~1 hour solving problems at the city chess club, ~1 hour playing strong opposition at the club

Thursday: 10 minutes preparing for and 2 hours 5 minutes playing a Team 45 45 league game (quite a nice game – rather better than my recent 4NCL efforts!), 40 minutes post-mortem analysis with opponent, 20 minutes analysing the game on my own afterwards, 30 minutes opening work

Friday: 20 minutes CT-Art

Saturday: 2 hours 30 minutes playing a 4NCL game, 20 minutes post-mortem analysis, at least 2 hours 45 minutes preparation for the next day’s game

Sunday: 20 minutes preparation for and 4 hours 50 minutes playing a 4NCL game, 50 minutes analysing the game

Overall, a good week’s work and I hope to be able to keep it up this week.
