I take a short vocation from friday the last week, for I am out of the town, on a trip!
I still solve problems at Tactics Treiner, and I improved my performance at least: at the moment, my TT R=2370, rank #14! I like it!
I concluded two games this week, both against ckexp at the 2nd Chess.com Quick Knockouts (2001-2200) - round 1 . Won as a black, lost as a white! In both games, attacker lost at the end for defender was sucesfull! My rating drop from 2154 to 2144.
I concluded all 8 games in the tournament, result +3-4=1, 3rd place at my group. This is the first time at five tournaments I didn't qualify for the 2nd round.
I started to play at the new tournament, Aggression! Small one with only six participants, all >2100 rating points, and we play only one game with every oponent. At the moment, I have in progress five games in this tournament, and three in 2nd Chess.com Tournament (1801-2000), where I strugle for the 1st place. I still wait for 2nd round to start in three tournaments.
