A Week of Accomplishment

25th of Jun 2017

One of the things I do in my spare time to de-stress (or find some eustress if I need to wake up without caffeine), is play crazyhouse chess. It's a variant that's played like normal chess, except that captured pieces switch sides and can be dropped back onto the board. I typically play on lichess.org—the chess.com interface feels a bit clunky to me and the better players (JannLee, TwelveTeen, chickencrossroad, mastertan) frequent lichess more often. I scored shared 10th in the inaugural chess.com Crazyhouse World Championship, and now, on lichess, reached the Top 10 on the ratings list for the first time!
