"I can see you on the hill (oh why do I...)
You're comatose, but walking still (oh why do I...)" - Neil Young
New month, newish plan.
This month will just be a partial continuation of last month. For October I plan on working on exactly two things:
It's time to get a handle on this one. I like the positions that arise from it. I like that it's less muddy than my beloved Scheveningen, and I like that it's something that can be played by feel to a large degree.
So I will continue to read The Siclilian Taimanov: Move by Move by John Emms, and I will continue to study the games of Igor Miladinovic.
Analyze my Own Games
I plan on working hard to analyze each of my games in October, along with the two September games I haven't analyzed yet. This month I will be playing in a Swiss at the Southwest Club, and will be playing in the Hales Corners Challenge next weekend.
Don't get me wrong, these aren't the only two things I will be doing as I will also be solving tactics puzzles on my phone as well as reviewing Alekhine's best games book and a book on pawn tension, but these are the main two areas of focus I intend to work on.
