Dedicated study the last week has settled into a routine via Chessable.

After getting out of bed, I make a coffee, smoke a cigarette (bad habit, I know) and settle in for about an hour. The current lessons include a tactics series (presently knight focused), updating my openings (working on Italian Game) and endgames (R+P).

Today's work was about an hour and a half. Feels good. What I recall of Personal Chess Trainer software I was using years ago feels like Chessable. Repetition to ingrain pattern recognition.

Hopefully it starts to pay off!


  1. Good to see you back. Thanks for the words of encouragement. We do this for ourselves. Setting aside some time in our day/week/month for ourselves... to have a daily "practice" that helps substantiate us away from just our drudgery of work, eat, sleep repeat. It's for any monetary gain or out to impress anyone else but our own state of being and "to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow." ( stole that last part from a quote by Kurt Vonnegut)

  2. ...It's not for any monetary gain... rather ( couldn't edit comment)
