Today was day two of the re-launch of the 100 days of tactics.
Here are the cumulative results:
Interestingly I felt the same kind of surge I feel in an actual game when I’m in time trouble as I neared the end of my 30 min session.
This led me to miss the last two problems in some sort of “ratings chase” as I was practically gambling by rushing my moves to try to get back to my all time high on chesstempo. Because of course it tells you when you set a record.
Clearly I’ll need to work on emotional control while solving.
I am fortunate in that I’m not a jittery player. I don’t shake or fidget when sitting at the board and I rarely get nervous until I’m deep in time trouble.
Now I just need to work on that same calm while solving.
Til Next Time,
