Things have not been going well with the Chess studies this week. Four things in a row went bad, causing me to reconsider the whole idea. I mean, if you’re not having fun, why do it?
In following with step 9 from my first truly analyzed Chess game, I shifted my Chess work to address the problems I found with my play. Rather than continue reading my new Chess book (Reassess Your Chess) on Wednesday, I poked around on the internet and found some articles on the thought process in Chess. Today at work I had a lot of test runs to do on my new search program to deal with our new Sharp Floor system (more on that in the next post). While they were running, I did what I probably do best (and like to do most): I analyzed what I had learned about the thought process in Chess.
