Well, after my most recent club tournament, the Blooming Flowers Swiss my rating is now only five points shy of my peak of 1724.
The results are here.
I'm pleased that I was able to gain 32 rating points in only two games. Mostly a combination of luck and skill I suppose.
My next event is a quad so I will have three games against similarly rated opponents. Meaning that I will have a good chance to surpass my all time high rating as long as I continue to play like I have been barring my one bad outing at the Arpad Elo Open.
At this point I think that as long as I continue to work my plan I will continue to improve in leaps and bounds. I just feel it in my bones right now so I feel like I have to keep the intensity going...
This weekend I will be at the final three rounds of the US Championships. I will also be spending time with a friend of mine that I grew up playing chess with. We are about the same strength so we should be able to get some good studying in around hanging out and everything else.
