I had 41 wins and 39 losses in this year. My winning percentage was almost 50% and my lank remained in 8k for about 1 year.
My aim in this year was memorizing the "Hitome" series. It's a famous series of books about some technique of go for beginners. The series has life-and-death problems, good tactical move, race to capture, opening, endgame and so on. It has about 10 books now.
I finished memorizing almost all books of the series this year.
The aim was not to read but to "memorize". I had to read over 10 times each book for memorizing. It's hard, but I done.
Nevertheless, my lank has not gone up...
