Days 85 - 101 / 264 to go

NOPE - I didn´t not quit! Not even thought about it. (Sorry for my silence.)

Nevertheless, there were a few circumstances coming together which somewhat forced me to take a break: next to the usual job+family, there was also the Euro 2016 to which I simply had to pay some tribute and last but not least I had an old pal - FM Zimmer - visiting me for a few days.
We actually had a nice session on one of my openings - helpful and at the same time (very) motivating: thanks, dude!

During these days I actually played my first ever 30min rapid chess tournament: I started on rank 29 and finished 15th (with a hypothetical rating gain of 20 points). I take this as a success.
