Hiatus is over

Jul 4, 2012, 4:15 PM |

Nearly three years since my last tournament, I've decided to come back  to chess. USCF registration? Check. Chess.com membership? Check. Tournament schedule? Check.

I plan to play at weekly gatherings here in Louisville on Mondays and Thursdays, but also these CCA tournaments over coming months:


Indianapolis Open, 8/17-8/19

Louisville Open, 9/21-9/23

King's Island Open, 11/9-11/11


From every event I play I want to make a post of one game -- maybe multiple games for the CCA posts.

For training I'm focusing on Tactics Trainer problems, Chess Mentor lessons, Silman's Endgame Course book, and rereading Nimzovitch's My System.

I'd like to get up to 1600 in one year --- but we'll see. I don't feel like I'm coming back at my 1400 strength.
