5 X 5 Board -CT Art
Although it is somewhat of a roundabout way to get there. I think it would be interesting/helpful to do a circle of the 1200 5X5 problems. My belief is if I internalized these 5X5 I would greatly improve tactically.
Currently on my L30 2 circle at number 500. 100 problems to go.
Also I am becoming a believer in the idea of narating why the tactic works for understanding in addition to visualizing the solution to improve tactical recognition.
My ratings increases/decreases have been sporatic due to my inconsistant study program. They normally increase after I go through a period of tactical binging. I feel I am on the cusp again of increasing,
The signs I see are.
Winning Games I have no right to win (through a tactical shot)
Drawing more games which I use to never do
Better endgame play
updated note: started to do a circle of 5x5 did the first 330 fairly quickly although somewhat cumbersome.
