XXDART7’s Intermediate Adult Improver Plan

XXDART7
Week 1 Day 1:

Current Ratings

Blitz: 1084

Rapid: N/A

Daily: 1017

My main goal is just to learn something new so that every 6-12 months when I look back on my previous chess skill, I can be happy with my improvement. I'm hoping this study plan will provide a bit more direction and focus to get there, and that I improve more than I otherwise would.

Week 2 Day 1:
Current Ratings
Blitz: 799
Rapid: 1168
Daily: 997

My ratings dropped across the board, but those original numbers where back from when I had been playing more and studying.  I also never really played much Blitz or Rapid.  Not discourage but I've definitely been disappointed by some of my play so far.  This is why we study, right?

Week 3 Day 1:
Current Ratings
Blitz: 708
Rapid: 1012
Daily: 997

Ratings dropped across the board again.  Most likely that Daily will have a significant drop this week being as I signed up for a tournament and was given 22 games to play.  I didn't know how to get out of it and didn't want that many games, so had to resign all games started.  Oh well - onwards and upwards!

Week 4 Day 1:
Current Ratings
Blitz: 699
Rapid: 951
Daily: 896

Ratings dropped across the board again.  Largest drop was Daily as predicted.  Still on the program and hoping for some upward movement this week.
