Back in action, got 1500 on to the next 500!

A few of you may have noted that I was active in the chess blogosphere again , today I resume posting here.

Since my last post on the Chess Tactics Server I have been making some progression there in terms of success percentage. I haven't been able to train regularly, but I have the feeling I'm getting ever more relaxed under the time pressure.

Handle mentat

My rating dropped slightly to 1162 (1186), however my success percentage increased to 69,1 % (65,3%).

03 of 10 training sessions where above 80% correct; exellent.
06 of 10 training sessions where between 70 and 80 % correct; not too bad, but still...
01 of 10 training sessions was 63 % correct; useless.

Now I must see that I continue this increase in percentage correct, but progress there is!

At this moment I have done 1500 problems, onwards to the next 500 and when this really gets a habit, I will post every thousand or so.

And remains so in round 03

After the crushing defeat in round 02 I offered Jabba that we would play again, me once more with the Black pieces. It was getting late and we were both getting tired, we had been playing chess for a couple of hours already.

In this game I tried my hand at providing some annotations myself, I hope they are correct and add something to the game.


I'll be gone for at about three weeks from now, but I put some chess programs on my cellphone: Cellufun Chess, Chess Buddy, HorseCourse, iChessDemo, ShredderMobile Demo, Spruce Chess and Webgate Chess.

If you know more, or have an opinion on the above, feel free to let me know.

I'll be back!
