A few days ago I checked my games from the last year and put them into my database. I founded some interesting facts about those games which I would like to share with you now.
As the title of this articles says, I played 21 games the last year. I mean serious and tournament games. My result was +9, =9, -3, performance 1780 (my average ELO was 1743).
I was clearly better with white pieces: +6, =4, -1, performance 1828 (my average ELO was 1743), while my statistics for black pieces are: +3, =5, -2, performance 1743 (my average ELO was 1743). It surpsised me a bit as I was better with black pieces in previous years.
The number of games is not too high because I did not play any game in the second half of 2010.
This year I plan to play 4 tournaments at least and the first one – the competition of teams – will start next week. It should result in about 40 games per year at least.
Do you do this kind of stats for your games?
