Hello everyone, I am a USCF 1623, and my immediate goal is Class A. What was the most helpful thing you did when you had my rating?
Thanks in advance, Nate
One of the things i did when i was rated in the 1600's was work on my tactics alot more. Also i don't know if you are someone that tends to play fast but i tried to slow down and spend more time on my moves. Good luck on your quest for the A class.
You may also have a one-time session with a coach to investigate your OTB weaknesses.
It may be that working on only one of them could be worth 50-100 rating pts.
Expand your opening knowledge in your chosen openings and play as often as possible especially with higher rated players.
Thanks, I am planning on getting a few lessons
