So the 2011-12 quest to play 52 games failed. I played 41 games. I could have gotten (maybe) a few more games in, but after the NAS-NAJ Tournament, the wind spilled out of my sails. The tournament didn't cause all of that - rather, it was a combination of the tournament and other events that culminated in a lack of desire to do just about anything.
But, I'm picking the pieces up and the desire is coming back and I'm ready to kick off the 2012-13 quest to play at least 52 games. I'm not going to be so stringent about the time controls I play. I will probably end up playing more G/60 games than any other type.
As usual, leave a comment, send me an email or message on FICS if you want to play a single game or a series.
