 Re: JWhis (FICS Whis) Game Archive
Started out really rough on tactics today and early on missed 4 in a row. Fought back nicely with a 14/15 streak, and was able to gain sufficiently to break into the top 1000 again, despite not meeting my 90% expectation. I got burned on a few hard problems, but it is ok, I spent sufficient time to analyze to the best of my ability, and missed a few king escape squares in my calculations. Getting all the concepts right on the problems, just mis-executing them. There was one problem that I just got completely wrong, idea and all, and it was this one:

http://chesstempo.com/chess-problems/90455

I thought if I took the rook, then Qc1+ would be deadly for black, but white's threats are just too strong. I played Rd7. But overall, continuing to progress and get my vision back. I'm back in the top 1000 again!! AND in the 90% percentile of solvers once again where I BELONG!!! HA HA Onwards to the 800s we go!

Competition would be quite cool, Like most improvement over a 10 hour solving period or something.

I put a suggestion on their forum for a head to head mode, and Richard said someday they'll have it :) Maybe we could just do like a most consecutive green streak or something.

Bad day today, I went backwards. Just woke up, and still groggy but for some reason, refuse to just let it go after a few misses and come back another time. So I dropped a lot of problems :(

19 of my last 20. Got my mojo working after a rough start this afternoon :) Soon to be in the 800s again :) Bumped up a whole percentage point in percentile, from 90 to 91st percentile. Another 100 points or so, and we'll be in the cream of the crop

Hi Whis, don't forget to post your speed! Accuracy is most important, but in a real game you can't always spend 10 mins on each move.

I don't have premium membership, so I can't see my speed results, but scrolling through recent problems, I am usually faster than the average solve time, or when I go over, it is usually much higher. I don't train for speed there, as clock issues have never been a problem for me otb. I use the site mostly for practicing accuracy of calculation, not blitzing out a 'guess' move that I haven't thoroughly analyzed.

My FIDE estimate has actually gone down though. Presumably becasue I've taken longer...

 Re: JWhis (FICS Whis) Game Archive
What is the general consensus on accuracy vs time. When I do standard tactics I am usually getting above 90% but the rub is that some problems are taking me over 5 minutes, and in a 15 minute game that is 1/3 of my time.

 Re: JWhis (FICS Whis) Game Archive
As far as I know, if you are doing standard untimed, then take as much time as you need. That's what separates practice from a game ;). In blitz mode, then I try to be fast, but I tend to steer away from it, since I've seen more improvement in my play when I practice longer term thinking, since I have a natural inclination to 'blitz' out my moves over the board.

 Re: JWhis (FICS Whis) Game Archive
Then it all came crashing down....

Haven't done any CT for apparently 2 weeks... and I bombed 12 of 19. Once I dropped under 1800 I said fuck it, and stopped. -60 in one session is enough for one day :) Back at it soon, to get back where I was. Mental note, getting right out of bed, and doing tactics on an empty stomach = fail.
