Back to the chess club last Tuesday. Incredibly, I’ve been away for almost a year. I did play USATE, and one or two rated games in the Fall, but that’s it.
Jeff Hall (1888) and I traded oversights for three hours. Really horrible stuff :)
So the rust removal process begins. Back to the tactics server (emrald). Back to blindfold on FICS (last login more than a year ago).
I’ve previously documented the ways rust affects my play.
How quickly do you find you can get “in form” after a layoff?
