SFDP, but chess club report so Hans doesn’t come after me again :
First session with the instructor went well, game afterwards did not. I got outplayed-one of those frustrating games where there were no good moves for me that I could find.
Lots of research for me over the next week from both the instructor and the game. Anyway, I think I’ll leave off talking about this now unless something interesting actually happens, which it probably won’t. I get a provisional rating in two weeks, and given how things have been going, I expect it to be rather low.
I am not quitting, however. I see many promising avenues for improvement.
