It's painful to admit that I "committed" to working with Rolf Wetzell's "Flash Card" method of improvement 11 months ago.
I finally made my first computer generated "flash card" today.
The idea is to take specific instances where you missed something and immortalize them in a form where you can quickly review them over and over, eventually eradicating that type of mistake to the extent possible. Wetzell says in the book that he made an average of about two a week for eight years, resulting in about 800 images. Placing them in a binder or in some kind of computer-based viewer allows rapid, efficient review.
In order to encourage a lot more of these, I'll be posting on the blog...herewith, Flash Card #1:
The whole note section doesn't show up but this is taken from this recent Reno CC game. A full version is now in my notebook.

UPDATE 09.27.07: See the comments for further interesting analysis, which I'm sure is still not completely covering all the important possibilities. Seems that "Black is up material" is very iffy...to paraphrase Barbie, "chess is hard."
