Getting over the hump

Getting over the hump

I love chess. But so do most of us on this site. I play downtown San Francisco with some of the chess hustlers and mostly pay for lessons via losing bets. Ive been lucky to hook up with a few Grand Masters and Grand Master level players and learn a few things. I havent played regularly for quite some time. I support the HipHop Chess fedearation( http://www.hiphopchessfederation.org/ ) but I havent gotten any regular play. Im so glad to have discovered Chess.com . Ive been playing almost nonstop (bar sleep) since yesterday and I gotten my rating up to about 1354 only to plummet to 1263(smdh) but ive finaly gotten past the 1300 hump and I hopr to stay above this and grow as a player. I ve learned my lesson(again) about chess fatigue. sometimes you just have to put the pieces down,chill and re-energize. Then you can have back at it *CHEAH*
