So as the title suggests, I'm coming back after being off for about 6 months, and I feel incredibly rusty (damn college...)...
At any rate, my question is this: What is the best way to prepare for a tournament after being away from competitive play for an extended period of time.
play 2hrs of 25min plus 3sec increment games against only players willing to do postmortem analysis afterwards.
