Hi all. Apologies for the long break from blogging. My degree is finally complete, so I can return to chess in earnest. I’ll be posting about my plans in the near future, but for now this is just a quick post to fill you in on the small amount of chess I did over the exam period.
Nearly six hours, split between online blitz, and preparation for and playing the final round of the Club Championships. The Club Champs game was important as had I won I’d have tied for first place; as it was I blundered at the end of a hard-fought game and my opponent secured the game and the title.
45 minutes or so of online blitz (revision breaks).
About three hours of opening work.
Three and a quarter hours – mostly opening work but also a little blitz.
I’m aware that I’ve neglected to reply to a lot of comments recently – I’ll be working my way through those soon.
