Last game hitting 1921:


Glicko RD 106 after game - I played really little so rating would rise or fall rapidly.

Things I had done: ICCF games; Reading opening books of Avrukh, Wojo's student, Lars , ... with engine research and CPT; Some endgames; Some ICS material review; 4+ years of OTB play (currently stopped)

I value ultimate success more than "correctness" of studying method. Thus, I prefer the maths side of rating (and playing less, treating each game as duel between nations) rather than pursuing the bulk experience from many games.

Time to do strenuous chess exercise again - which is painful and daunting and I have delayed "conflict" between them long enough.

2000 without Chess.com study plan for advanced player is possible ... some months or years later.
