Time for new things.
Back in February 2005, I started doing the tactical problems after reading about the De La Maza 7 circle program. I first read King of the Spill blog and joined the Knights Errants.
I started this blog and hastily wrote blog entries unencumbered by correct spelling , grammar and the need to write the kind of detailed meaningful content that Tempo, BDK, Pale Morning Dun , J'Adoube, Sancho, Don DLM and others often provided.
I have done my 1000 plus tactics 8 more time so I am officially declaring myself graduated. My goal was to do the complete CT-Art but it is apparent that I am not going to do that.
Doing the circles was helpful. I never have played stronger than after months of doing tactical training. I would recommend that anyone looking to improve give it a try. Being part of the Knights Errant was fun and helpful. Take a look at Samurai Knight blog if you would like to learn more.
I will continue to play chess and occasionally blog. Thanks everyone , Knights past and present, Fellow bloggers and readers. See you on the Internet.
