I’ve pretty much been in stasis since my last chess update. I’ve been busy. I never renewed my Dr. Wolf subscription though I have been trying unsuccessfully to beat Maria (1200 blitz rating) for months. I can when I use the assists but not without. I use the assists to learn strategy. I did download some chess strategy guides but have not had the time to check them out. So this update is to say I am still dutifully playing my daily chess games (5 minutes a day), probably learning stuff but not really progressing. And not really fussed about it because too much other stuff is happening.
I hope to up my chess game in the coming months after I’ve submitted my articles for the year. For now I will just allow Maria to keep kicking my ass.
Don’t want to play anymore live players because it just brings down my rapid and blitz ratings 😛
