I finally made it to 3000!!!

This had been a goal of mine for about 3 months. To see if I could break through that magic barrier. Today that became a reality, after an 8 hour session. I'm so happy right now.

Now would be a good time to start working on that rapid rating of mine, and maybe take a break from the puzzles cry

I've been putting in a lot of hours over the last couple of days. Got to around 2950 a few days ago, then dropped to 2820 in one day. Got very frustrated with my performance, but managed to make it up to around 2880 the following day, then 3001 today, after having played for 8 hours in a row.

Wow that’s very impressive for your rating, this shows that now all you have to do is learn some other things like a better positional understanding and your rating should skyrocket.

Thank you for the reply. Yeah, I'm planning to take a long break from puzzles, now that I've reached my goal. Instead focusing on increasing my general knowledge of the game as a whole.

I thought you meant like blitz or something, I was about to be like "time to report this guy for engine use" and then I saw it was puzzles (lol)

Still, congratulations! It's not easy.

Yeah, no I'm actually a very weak player generally speaking, and got much to learn, something I'm looking forward to.

I'm only rated around 1100 rapid, and have not played any of the other modes much at all. recently.

Gosh, that's a lot of dedication you put into puzzles! You deserve a Congratulations award (I just sent you one). Great job, @abcFearey !

Thank you very much. Yeah, I did put in quite a bit of time and effort to get there. I didn't actually think I could do it until I got to 2700 for the first time. That's when I considered it a possibility to actually reach 3000, and it being more than some distant, unattainable goal.

No problem!

Great! Hope you put all of those learnings in real games!

Thank you. No, I don't think so. At least not immediately. I'm intending to take a long break from puzzles before trying to get any higher.
