I've decided to go on an improvement plan, as so many before. But there's always the sticky item of making it concrete and sticking to it.

 My goal is to reach 1500 USCF in a year, I'm 1261P now.

Other ratings include ~1300 FICGS, ~1500 here and standard FICS, ~1000 blitz FICS

 

Methods:

1. Tactics: Complete the entire CD Chess Tactics for Beginners x 3

                Complete at least 10 Chesstempo problems / Day

                Complete Reinfeld's 1001 Sacrifices and Combinations

2. Endgame: Complete Pandolfini's Endgame Course

3. Openings: stick to QG Exchange and Scotch as white, 

                              Ruy Lopez Open and Tarrasch QGD as black
