What's Happening at Takchess World

I continue to run through Ct-Art on the L40 Problems and not looking to spend one moment extra with variations sidelines. I want to see all the problems once then I will decide whether to do the circles as god (MDLM) intended it the complete CT-art 7 times or break it down by doing each level 7 times. The scary part is I did Level 20 14 times before I got it to a level of solving it that I was happy with. After that my play was significantly stronger causing me to want to play more chess and do less tactics eventually making me significantly weaker in time. It seems to be a pendulum with me moving me to the center. I went through a rating drop so here we are again...............

    samurai is also at level three, so its one heck of a push.

    fyi, of course, i do 100 to 125 CTS a day, so its a real effort...
