Before a break at CTS my rating hoovered around 1530.
After the break of 3 weeks, my rating nose dived to 1470
Why so extreme?
It took me a month to get back to 1530 again.
Why so long?
In the mean time my succesrate improved from 79.0 % to 79.5 %
Since it is an average over all 33,000 problems that is much.
Why so much?
Most people's OTB-rating is about 300 points higher than their CTS-rating.
Except Celtic Death, who's OTB-rating is more than 50 points LOWER than his CTS-rating.
My new approach to redo my failures by visualising them in the mind seems to work.
Why does my rating at CTS improve so slow?
There seems to be only one answer to these questions: to continue until I find out.
