It's been a year and a half since I was at this place. I was so close to attaining my goal but I lost. And then I lost. And then I lost. And then stopped. I played a couple 960 games with my friends to ease in. Unrated. Fun. I beat them. I love the creative aspect of 960.

Just celebrated 50 wins over my old chess teacher. The man who introduced me to the game. He hasn't been able to beat me recently. And now this guy. realaitch - American. It wasn't that hard to beat him. I was very aggressive and it paid off. He never managed to be a real threat and I had my knife on his kings throat from the beginning. Immediate rematch request and now I'm here. On the edge again. Exact same place. That win wasn't enough to put me over. Neither was the last one. I'll have two shots at him to break the barrier. If I lose, we'll need to tie break. But I'm not going to lose. This is match 250. 249 matches. Ranked 1599. I will win.

Your freedom of choice can't lead you to where you need to go until you have more possibilities to choose from.

I beat a man from the Ukraine who then immediately requested a rematch.  I beat him again in the same amount of time while simultaneously taking out a guy from Mexico.  I feel bad for him because I strangled him quite brutally and killed him with a few subtle moves.  He's probably kicking himself.  I'm going to take a break and when things settle down I'm going hunting for giants.  I earned the W's but my opponents lost their concentration and didn't see my traps.  Currently riding a 12 match win streak or so.

Highest: 1502 (Jul 28, 2014).  I'm back!  Better than ever!

The road to my 250th ranked game.  I've fallen so far from the player I used to be.  At my lowest I was back in the high 1200's... maybe last year.  A dark time.  But those days are over now.

Now I retire from 960 for a bit and go back to the regular game.
