Weekly Progress Report #70

I did a little over 5 and a half hours of chess this week. Some of that time was spent on opening preparation for a local league game, but in a repeat of two weeks ago I wasn’t paired against the person I was expecting. Instead I played a significantly lower-rated opponent, and won without too much difficulty. I also solved some problems from a little problem book I received for Christmas.

The Durham City Club Championship is hotting up, and on Wednesday I’ll play co-leader on 2.5/3 Ken Neat (ECF 196).  Last year I managed to play quite a good game and beat Ken, but he still went on to take the title and I expect this game to be very tough.  Later in the month I’ll be playing for Durham University in the British Universities’ Chess Assocation Championships.

    1. Hi,

      No, but I’ve decided to focus mostly on uni work until the end of my degree. My 4th year project isn’t going particularly well, so I’m spending a lot of time in the lab at the moment. After my exams have finished it’s very likely that I’ll spend from a few months to a year just on chess, but I haven’t decided for sure / any details yet.
