Hey YouTube, it’s been awhile! I’ve moved recently, and I’ve been streaming a fair amount. Hope everyone out there has been well.
My goals in this series are to 1) stay even or ahead of my opponents on the clock, and 2) trust my decision-making. Follow along as I try to avoid perfectionist tendencies and apply pressure with the ultimate equalizer in competitive chess: the clock! #Chess #BlitzChess #ClockAsAWeapon
