Destination 2300 ELO Series The big picture (Plan)
when you have figured out where you would like to be , the next step is to figure out how to get there !! the target is to go from 1797 to 2300 ELO on or before 1/12/2018 , this really should not be about just gathering ELO points but to first of all become 2400+ strength !
Therefore my first goal should be to harden up and be 2400+ playing strength .
1. achieve 2400+ playing strength
2. Play in at least four major tournaments in Nigeria preferably 9 rounds event in year 2017 and 2018 **
