I completed my level 30 problems for the 10th circle of hell on CT-ART .
I have a less than stellar results as I only scored a meager 68% as compared to the 76% when I completed the 7 circles rush last summer. I am doing it differently this time. I am not doing the concentric maze like before instead I am doing a more “traditional” sequential approach. Rather than relying purely on memorization I am focusing on approaching these with a consistent thought process as if I were in a game. I recognize some but I try to look at the “tactical seeds” before I start the calculation.
What’s frustrating is that my thought process is not as consistent as I’d like. (could be the fundamental problem of all human players) But this is reality. Some weekend events I can come in and have my “game” on. Other times, I’ll have external influences clouding my performance. So likewise, being able to train under varying circumstances is what I strive for because it best represents the dilemma that a weekend warrior like myself will encounter.
What I am finding though, is my thought process HAS improved. I am being more cautious, playing less erratic and the last couple of games I lost were purely due to calculation errors. I am better able to analyze a position with more accuracy and form the right plan ( at my level at least).
I know I can’t strive for perfection when it comes to the inner noise. Practice and progress is my mantra.
