Perhaps a lack of midichlorians
I have tried to put positional knowledge into practice during my games. Allthough I feel a lot of potential in it it still doesn't boost my performance. The problem is that if you have to do 65 things well in a game and you do only 6o well, you are not going to win the game.
It feels a bit the same as when I started with tactics years ago. Then you could hear me whining "I'm the only one who worked this game, I have to do everything myself. Even loosing. . .!!"
I have to study for my work so there's not too much time left for blogging. But I expect that to change after the summer.
Margriet on the other hand is doing extremely well with the new knowledge. I expect her to cross the 1600 line soon. Every seasoned tournement player knows that it is extremely rare for women at age 50 to increase from 1150 to 1600. Usually 1400 is an unbreakable barrier. So I'm very proud.
