Going to be playing in a G90 tournament on Aug. 9th.  I decided to play with 2 weeks to prepare.  My training schedule is as follows:

Day 1 - Go over KIA lines with Chess Position Trainer

Day 2 - Nimzo Indian with CTP + videos

Day 3 - French Defense with CTP + videos

Day 4 - All opening CTP Training

Day 5 - All opening CTP Training

Day 6 - Rook endgames

Day 7 - Rook endgames + Chess Coach lesson

Day 8 - Chess Mentor endgames

Day 9 - Chess Mentor endgames

Day 10 - Study tactical positions 5-15 min per position

Day 11 - Study tactical positions 5-15 min per position

Day 12 - Game analysis

I'm about halfway through now, and noticing lots of bad things in my games.  Need more opening training, missing simple threats, missing best lines, talking myself out of best lines, giving too much counterplay.
