Man vs Nature, Nature 1 Man 0

While at the Cape a wave threw me and I now have a fractured fibula.It is my left foot so I still drive and go to work.

The plan is to do Ct-art on the coach for Evenings for a while. In an air cast for the next 6-8 weeks. This is God's way of telling me he wants me to be a better chess tactician.

Thursday : Ct-art Circle Whatever 1-270

    I'm going to stop praying for God to make me a better endgame player.

    Are you doing test or practice mode?

    practice mode. I might do some ct for beginners as well.

    Cheater! Actually, practice mode is better for the kind of solution-oriented approach I've been doing. In test, can't fire up the damned engine if I don't understand what's going on.

    Sorry about your injury. That sucks!

    sorry to hear of this misfortune...

    at the same time, last year, when i had a rib contusion, managed to start back hard at ICC and play like literally 1400 chess games, in the next few months, etc, if not about 800 in a few weeks.

    nice posts, as always, below and above. thx, david

    ps, thx also for your lead on GM-Ram and Soltis as classic games, of course well known for me, but till your good comments, never thought of adding, at this time, but did fully. bravo!
