@sipncoffee, thanks for posting! Great inspirational story.
If you have a link to your FIDE or USCF record, it would be great to see your progress chart over the years.
If anyone is interested, you can see my personal USCF rating progress on my latest blog: http://www.chess.com/blog/sipncoffee/adult-chess-improvement-part-62
Feedback and comments welcomed!
That is right DrCheckevertim- I was pretty dedicated to chess from the first experiences with the game. My beginning was so unstructured in finding my way-I really think anyone can do it now in at least half the time it took me, which was about 14 years or so. I think 5 years or less is very possible with complete dedication, escp. with all the resources out there and excellent guidance. Best of luck to you! Cheers!
I went from "unrated" to USCF 1814, nine months after I joined the USCF.
Haven't broken the 1900 rating level since then, but have learned to play at high speeds, relatively well. GREAT FUN.
Who has the time to regularly play in 2-3 day tournaments? Not me, at least not until I retire.
Assuming it's true, @Sipncoffee's long and consistent commitment to many (long) tournaments is impressive. More power to him.
He's in the top 5 percent of active USCF tournament players.
