Day 20; Got the rapid rating sitting comfortably above 1600 now which is a huge accomplishment for me! However the blitz rating isn't quite so easy to maintain with my poor time management tongue.png Also had a bit of a go on lichess with a strong rated friend which was fun and definitely challenging. 

Rapid game 1:
Interesting dutch ended up with unfortunate draw. Was up in material but tricky position. Handy endgame tactics to know. 
Rapid game 2: London system tactics.
Rapid Game 3:  Comfortable french; unjustified sacrifice from opponent led to a slow and steady conversion. 
Bullet games 1 l 0 and 2 l 0 ;

Lichess games 5 l 2: A valuable lesson in the french, and why c5 does work in certain lines

Let the king get away!
Lichess bullet games: 1 l 0 (lost 6 out of 8, many on time tongue.png)
