All Things Must Pass

So I went on quite a run of tactical success with chesstempo.

I solved 29 straight correctly, then finally missed one a few minutes ago.

I do like to solve them rated sometimes to try to work my way up to harder problems.  The only issue I have with them is that often the value for success is little and the punishment for failure is high.

My best guess is that you need a success rate of around 70% just to stay level with where you are.

Either way, one thing I noticed as the streak took hold was that I was giving in to the temptation to guess far less frequently.

I was doing my best to calculate as precisely as I could.  Hopefully that sticks and is a thing now.
