Circle Two complete!

So the bishop takes the knight but what about the queen. Oh wait, it's pinned. Aha, take that! No wait, that's wrong. Rook takes knight and ... "test complete".

Thus finished my second lap around the track. Tonight at approx 10:30 PM, I finished problem number 1039 (I had counted wrong all along). In the past 96 days (and change), I have now completed 2248 chess problems. I don't have my Oxford English Dictionary handy, but I think that qualifies as a sh*tpile of chess problems. At approximately 10:32 PM, I opened the traditional celebratory beer, a 24 ounce Arrogant Bastard Ale.

Life is good.

32 days from now I should be done with the program (one rest day). I'm optimistic and would put my odds at 1-2 to finish. Quite an improvement over my original 10-1. Stay tuned! I think it's gonna start getting a bit crazy.

124 days down, 31 to go
1039 problems down, 0 to go in Circle Two
Level 10: 97%
Level 20: 88%
Level 30: 76%
Level 40: 68%
Level 50: 63%
Level 60: 59%
