Concentric Maze (Circles de la modified) Update

To recap on my method:
  1. CT-ART 3.0
  2. Start on level 10
  3. Do it 7 times
  4. Next level ... 7 X
  5. Does it hurt yet?

So, in theory, my circles consist of 63 concentric mazes which will still total the same amount of problems as prescribed by Michael De La Maza. Tonight, I made it through Maze 38 ( 3rd round of level 60). This brings my total problems to a count of 7279. I did two extra mazes on levels 10-20 plus a few odd ones in various levels at the beginning for those of you doing the pure math ( Like Hmmm... 7 x(110+286+221+204+134) +3x 84 only equals 6937... who am I kidding?).

I still suck ... I find at the higher levels the first couple tours I score about the same percentage.

A look at my sucky "hit rate":

Circle 10s 20s 30s 40s 50s 60s

1 89 74 65 58 54 46
2 90 77 67 59 58 46
3 90 80 68 59 55 53
4 90 82 68 59 59
5 93 86 73 69 69
6 97 90 73 73 66
7 95 89 76 79 71

8 94 92

( I haven't figured out a clean way to do tables on this Blog so sorry for the craptacular format)

These are pathetic...probably because for a while I was not using proper "thinking" and trying to calculate or recognize the pattern. Rather, becuase of burn out and trying to go as fast as possible I would "guess".... trying to correct that these days.

Oh well, I'm Off to the Eastern Class Championship this weekend! I'm done with tactics for tonight off to review my openings and attempt to finish Andy Solitis' new book on How to Choose a Chess Move I found at our local library ( good positional book ... very "wordy" ...I like that... I am dense).

To get the tables to work in blogspot you can't have any newlines in the html for the table. For some reason, it automatically inserts these newlines WITHIN the table as needing to be put BEFORE the table.

I wrote the code in my text editor, and turned off wordwrap, and then imported it into my post. You can see what I did here. That was over an hour of work :O

I'm sure you already know this, but you can right-click and get the html source code if you'd like.

Yup, it can hurt!
