Rest, Sweet Rest ('a pause that refreshes'!)

tonight, finally [originally posted at ChessChat.org]:

a mighty long haul!!!!














85.0293%
(85.0%) #158 rank
3,297f/18,726s = 22,023 tries #30 rank
RD 16.7 #2 of 1434 active users (late Saturday, when I hit 85.00%)
RD 18.7#15 tonight (late Sunday, when I re-established 1500.1 elo).

how many CTS users 20,000 tries and up are => than 85.0% and rated over 1420? six, illustrated by tries (descending order):

morkovkin 1615, 21.2k @ 89.1%
dktransform 1500, 22.0 @ 85.0%
alvis 1543, 24.9k @ 87.5%
kawala 1534, 27.1k @ 84.2%
spacecowboy 1424, 27.7k @ 88.9%
trallala 1583, 34.3k @ 93.1%

is this the only grouping of outstanding efforts? no. just my idea of what i idealize in other CTS users and have been striving for.

others who are close:

slowmouse 1403, 10.8 @ 93.5%
bahus 1537, 11.1k @ 89.0%
loomis 1668, 14.1k @ 77.9%
edgy 1684, 15.2k @ 79.6%
chessdog 1305, 27.0k @ 95.8%
mousetrapper 1423, 31.5 @ 82.2%
wormwood 1560, 61.2k @ 77.7%
temposchlucker 1560, 67.6k @ 79.9%

slowmouse is below 1424 but % is ++
bahus is rated+ with %++
loomis is rated ++edgy is rated ++
chessdog is rated lower but % is ++
mousetrapper is below 85.0% but has ++ tries
wormwood is rated + with tries++ but -lower %
temposchlucker is rated + with tries ++ but lower %

lastly, one prefatory note: just as to be in the top 100 worldwide in FIDE 2600 was sufficient but now does not suffice, for the first time when previously 9,800 tries was enough to be in the CTS top 100 in tries, now one must have 10,200 tries to get there.

likeforest and i were both #165 in percentage success two weeks ago, and while he soared to #137 at 85.9%, i am now only #159 for similar reasons above: new users! i was 84.5% weeks ago, and now am 85.0% and barely budged. it is getting crowded at 84.5 to 85.0% and the air only gets thinner at 85.0%+. There are now like ten million new users with sets of only 50 to 100

addendum, added late Sunday 01Oct06:

(i) some other users who all have high percentile with higher tries and ratings combined (percentages, ascending order):

FARKINDAMIYIZ 1595, 1.1k @ 96.6%
tjeulesbetes 1546, 3.2k @ 95.4%
AlfiereCattivo 1510, 4.6k @ 94.9%
firegarden 1487, 8.0k @ 94.7%
navan 1555, 5.9k @ 87.5%
helmt3 1679, 8.0k @ 86.2%

FARKINDAMIYIZ has very few tries but rating + and %++
tjeulesbetes has few tries but rating + and %++
AlfiereCattivo has lower - tries but %++
firegarden has it all: rating, %++ but tries less less than 10k -
navan has tries less than 10k but rating + and percentage +
helmt3 has rating ++, %+, and tries as yet less than 10k.

(ii) i plan to take a much deserved break or at the very least, a real reduction from CTS, not a long break, but 12,023 tries since the outage in early July and 2023 tries in the last 8 days is enough effort?? my goal all summer was 85.00% by 22k and 20k by 15 september.













(iii) my new goal: 1f/13s = 14 tries each set, or 3f/39s = 42 tries @ 92.86% for the next 8,000. this will put me at 3,900f/26,100s = 30,000 or 87.00% (and i do not mean 86.501 or '87%', and thus i need 605f/7,395s = 8,000 or 92.4375% for the next set of tries.

probable long term goals are: 88% for 40,000 and 89% for 50,000. my expectation is that 87 is lofty, so 86.5% is more probable but a goal just beyond ones comfort zone is good...

(iv) here on out, i will not longer lay out my score sheet in rows of ten as i did for a long time, then rows of eight (1f/9s = 10 @ 90.00%), but rows of forteen to reinforce this.

1/7 = 0.142856 or 14, 28, 56 etc, so 1/14 is .071428 or 7, 14, 28 etc (= needed 92.86%, >92.44 per above referenced product).

a little crazy kabalistic magik cannot hurt a man??? no.

(v) i will shift back to CT-Art 3.0 and this is longed for by every pore of my chess body! dk

My goodnes! Some of you guys have solved so many problems it's hard to imagine. I would say that whenever you take a rest, it will be well deserved. And maybe you could send me some of that positive energy you got with CT-A my way, cause I need it!

Take care and keep writing!

A change of approach is a good to keep the energies flowing. CT-ART is a great program for calculation and deeper tactics. I own it but got burned out after some time.. no doubt I'll be back sooner or later.

It would be neat if the ranking page filtered players with less than, say, 100 tries. That would reduce on inflation. #11 in accuracy is 95% at 39 tries.
