Still struggling to plan workload

Post by hoopy on May 31st 2009, 5:46 pm

For those that have completed month 2 could you help us?
I am really struggling to work out how much time to spend analysing the million or so study of the centre games.
How much time did you spend on this
and how much do you think you should have spent
and how much time do you think you will go back in future months?

Thanks very much for your help in advance Question

Ummm. Apparently, my ancestors had the same issues as I am today. I shall survive.

Wow. A 2009 question never answered properly.

I studied for about 2 - 3 hours a day/night on this content.

Interestingly, tonight I played a game OTB and still managed to blunder away the exchange despite all the study. I think I am simply unable to avoid stupid mistakes.

Lucky for me, my opponent managed to blunder the exchange back and it all ended in a draw!

But I understand you reaped a championship tourney sometime (after completing ICS) as you posted somewhere?

Possibly the Interclub tournaments here in Adelaide, but yeah, I am not that good to claim any high level tournament victories. Individual games, yes, but I don't think I will ever win a major high level event.
