Week Report No 23
This Tuesday, two hours before a begining of the 2nd Chess.com Quick Knockouts (2001-2200), I decided to take part in it. And then, almost at the same time, started 2nd Chess.com Tournament (1801-2000) - Round 2. In the last two games in the first rond, as I wrote previously, one player played lost games until the mate - fortunatelly, he didn't use 3 days for every move. And sudenly, I had 22 games to play in 3 tournaments!
Too much for me, as I concluded before, and in Quick Knockouts Tournaments you have only 24 hours for a move. I am on-line all day, but I usually no enough time - and even, I played to fast. As a result, I made mistakes. I lost two games, against the same oponent, blizzsorc (rating around 2200). At the end, I will be lucky if collect 50% in the tournament. The first tournament when I have a bad result.
I won one game at the 4th Chess.com Tournament (2001-2200) - Round 1 - my 3rd game concluded and 3rd win at the tournament. I have chances for the 1st place.
One oponent in the 2nd Chess.com Tournament (1801-2000) - Round 2 desist, and officially 2 wins are in my statistics, but, as normally, not concluded in rating. I didn't include those games in my statistics.
Total #103 +62-26=15
2300+ #10 + 0-7=3 15%
2100-2299 #15 + 1-10=4 20%
1900-2099 #25 +14-6=5 66%
1700-1899 #21 +17-1=3 88%
<1700 #32 +30-2=0 94%
Na turnirima: #27 +21-5=1
I am so unsucesfull against players >2100! I made some conclusions about it in the Week Report No 18-19. I need to play few games at the time. I usually use a half of hour or one hour during a day for chess, and I am slow thinker but unpatient...
