400 hours of chess

Oct 7, 2011, 6:19 PM |

I just passed another landmark on my way to 10,000 hours of chess: 400 hours! So, I've slowed down a bit, studying only 54 hours weekly (on average), since my 300 hour landmark. However, for quite a while I've been stagnated at about 1,600. But I guess that's a part of the process. 

Also, I've had my first chess lesson! That was on Monday, and it was great! I will certainly do that again, with regular intervals. 

And in a week from now, I'll participate in my first OTB tournament. That will be interesting. Smile
