day one

December 28, 2006

so i started on my quest to complete the MDLM program for chess improvement.. last night i ran the concentric drills using the K+R and i used the Q, R, B, and N.. i think every day i will change so i run a cycle of K+R, +Q,  + N, +B, and then i will change the starting squares.. the knight moves are quick to run through, and like it says, the squares start to pop out at you.. running through the tactic drills, i did about 25-30 from the little exercises in pandolfini’s chessercises, and interestingly enough, the ones i got correct, i found the answer quickly, maybe 5 minutes, but the ones that stumped me stumped me good.. i had about a 70% rate last night.. i found that i need to look at the board longer and carefully and not get frustrated so easily when the answer doesnt materialize quickly..
