Today has been one of the worst days in recent memory, but it seems that there is always a silver lining to a darkened cloud. The game above was played today on Chess.com and although it is not much to look at, it represents an important milestone in my chess training because it is the first game to ever place me above 900 ELO in blitz! As I blogged about recently and followed-up with in the current edition of OMC Weekend Review, 900 has always eluded me, but today is a day for celebrating the fruits of hard-earned labor.
