I managed 12 hours 50 minutes of chess over the past week, which is ok for the last week of term. Here’s the breakdown:
Wednesday: ~3 hours at the City club analysing Bazna and other games and playing a 15-minute game
Friday: ~1 and a half hours playing and analysing with a uni friend
Saturday: ~2 hours 10 minutes working through the Gallagher book, 35 minutes playing 2x 15-minute games on ICC
Sunday: ~2 hours 50 minutes on the Gallagher book, 50 minutes studying Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual
I’m at home now and am finding myself a little distracted by Wimbledon, a Roger Waters gig and meeting old school friends, so I’m unlikely to manage the 40 hour target this week. I’m still undecided about which tournaments to play this summer; my first will probably be either the British Major Open or the Czech Open.
