On the eve of a new year, I think it's time to start a new thread for my goals for 2010. I did pretty well in 2009 advancing from 2158-> 2235 and even hit a high rating of 2249. I also feel like I got a lot better at endgames and had better results with black than I had in the past, though there is still room to improve.
1) Reach 2300 USCF: I'm definitely in striking distance here, but I think one of the reasons 2300 is so hard to reach is there are no floored 2300 players to pick on like there are for all rating classes below it. I scored 3 wins over 2300+ players last year and one draw against a 2600. To reach this I'll need to continue to build on that.
