Training Diary | Chess Cafe Puzzle Book 1 Tactics - Day 4 of 20
Concentration level was a 7.5 or 8, but the level of difficulty unexpectedly skyrocketed today. Solved the first two quite quickly, but doomed my entire test by taking an absurd twenty minutes over the 3rd problem (Officially #432 in the book). The problem immediately after that was equally impossible to solve.
I should have gotten #435, but at that point I had 7 minutes left to solve two more problems, so took a wild stab and guessed wrong.
Lesson learned: Save time for later problems. Don't aim for a perfect score. Do your best and move on.
Next up - positional puzzles.
