So I played over 2 hours of the Antichess Shield. I got tired and over it so I stopped. But my rating went up by 104 points and I maintained a 80% win rate after 20 games and a performance of 2300.
See link above:
Games played: 35
Win rate: 74%
Berserk rate: 29%
Average opponent: 2014
Also during this tournament, my rating peaked to 2180 and I almost got a top 50 antichess trophy (as high as 57).
Overall, i performed better than my previous Shield
Impressive CrystalEdge! B-O
I'm sure you'll be in the top50 rank soon.
Thank you @FrancoK <3
Congrats, CE!!! Well done. And quite impressive...
My own achievment today morning: cracking exactly 2100 in Lichess puzzles, after 14-6 yesterday and 3-0 today.
First time 2100... some >2200 puzzles achieved on the way
Thanks to the thread "Tools for Improvement" i take it seriousely now and "it clicked"
Now i have to go for a stable 1900 rating in rapid and classical, i mostly play intuitivly and positionally there and dont think too much, with calculating / tactics 1900 shouldn't be too difficult
(if the difficulty stays that high in the forum-mate in 1-puzzles, i will collect them for training purposes)
Congrats to myself for being the only one who drew #3, @seferduran (perf. >2200), in a wild game ...
This past weekend, I finished 11th in the u1500 section at the Pittsburgh open. Here are the standings:
My pairings were brutal, but I still managed 3/5. My opponents finished 1st, 4th, 6th, and 7th out of 34. I think I played better in this tournament than any previous! My games are being posted here: lichess.org/study/JQ8nR6u1
I'll be playing the world open in a little over a week, expect updates!
