War of Attrition

I will be done my last session of my current Level 20 circle tonight. Frankly, I am a little surprised that my recognition of the problems and their solutions are not better. My next step is that I am going to work on my incorrect problems. I will start with the first incorrect problem and do it 10 times then move on to the second problem. It sounds extreme but to do the same problem in rapid succession does not take significantly more time that solving it the first time. My tactical play in games does appear at times to be better. On Friday, at Chess Club I beat another strong player who had a record of 10-0 against me.

Session One: completed the subset for 116-200 10x 172,193,194 review once more
Session Two: completed the 200-210 subset 206 & 208 review once more
(202 is walking down the ladder tactic)
Session Three:completed 211-220 subset 10X
session Four :completed 220-250 subset 10x 248 review
Session Five& Six : completed 250-307 subset 10X 266,302 review again
Session Seven: 308-334 subset 10X 327 is an epalette mate(sp)
Session Eight 335-352 subset 10x
Session Nine 353-379 subset 10x 320 is an unusual queen bishop mate,356
review,379 is a tough Nezh tactic
Session Ten: did final 10X subset 389,390,393 review
might do a 1 subset before another circle at l20
Post 10X review....100-200 only 193& 199 to review
200-250 202,203,204,208,240,248,250
250-300 257,274,275,276
300-350 302,303,306,308,309,320,323,340

    Sometimes, in my 6th circle, I asked myself "am I supposed to have seen this one before? Looks new to me."

    Glad to hear I am not the only one! After doing each incorrect 10 times I should recognize them.
