Modified De La Maza

OK, With much interest, I have read a great many posts by the order of the Knights Errant. I too am a wannabe 400 in 400 MDLM. I have to report that I ended up modifying the 7 circles. Instead of running through all 9 levels, I am doing each level 7 times before I move on to the next.

I did this because I realized I am tactically deficient... and needed to see 1-3 move tactics before guessing at the higher levels. I am also taking a slower pace to the quest. I "officially" began the circles in June of 2005. I am now on my second circle of level 60 problems and scoring horribly.

My rating since June however has modestly improved a couple hundred rating points as seen here: http://www.uschess.org/msa/MbrDtlTnmtHst.php?12471987

My question to the Knights, can I become an honorary member given I have a modified circle?

Sure, and I like that approach myself. Anyone who does some form of regular tactics in a repeated format (i.e. circles) is considered one of the gang. Give Tempo an email to let him know.

Many Knights do mini-circles. Good luck and good to see a new face!
