I'm particularly happy that I managed to play more games last month than in the month before, namely:
- 2 OTB Games
- 8 Lichess classical games
- 13 Lichess rapid games
I wanted to play more compared to October, so I prioritised playing even when I was ill.
I also continued solving tactics every day, which I think is very important to stay sharp, especially since I didn't have the energy to work a lot on chess in general.
The biggest issue with my training in November was that I couldn't put a lot of hard work into my chess training. This means that I neglected game analysis and didn't solve as many puzzles as I had hoped to.
Also when playing, I often lost my focus during the games and played some moves way too quickly since I couldn't really think about the position.
Improvements for December
I want to get back on track with my study and to help me achieve this, I will simplify my training plan a bit.
I will still solve tactics and go over 2 Alekhine games every day, but other than that I want to focus on analysing my games and doing also some positional exercises from Mastering Chess Strategy.
I will also play in an OTB tournament in December, so during the tournament I will study less and focus on my games. I certainly look forward to playing in another tournament!
