I've reached my chess goals faster than I've thought so I took a longer break from studying the game. This was not the best idea as my tactical vision is getting worse and I do some stupid mistakes.
I thought that chess is like walking a bike, once you learn how to walk you'll never forget. But it's very different and now I understand people that are warning me before playing a game that they haven't played lately and their game migt look stupid.
Starting today I'm back in class, doing tactical puzzles and reviewing my games, daily.
Also, here are my goals for 1st of May 2013:
Livechess standard: 1500 - currently 1212, highest 1241
Chesstempo: 1600 (this one will be reached faster) - currently 1322 (highest 1425)
I'm playing also online chess, but only with friends or in tournaments for my teams. Also vote chess is an interesting feature that attracts me.
I know that some may consider that a rating is just a rating and this is not the right approach but this is how I work, I need to have a goal, otherwise I'm like a ship without a destination, drifting.
See you here on 1st of May, 2013
