I have read books, played 3 times per day... and have done everything possible to get better but im still not even able to beat the average 1000 ranked players
What are the basic things i need to work on to geet better at chess... it just seems to be hard to get better and good players dont want to take the time to help u get better
Can I have your chess stuff?
Thinking people who took the time to actually offer advice would have dibs and I don't remember seeing you.
Anyway, keep your chess stuff 47, you may find yourself wishing you had it someday. Have taken several year + long breaks from the game since I found it but I always seem to come back to it with vigor.
If fact, taking a break could possibly be a good thing in some cases. I've even heard people say they came back stronger after taking a break.
And remember, if you ever feel that the fun has just gone out of it for you, there are lots of other ways to have fun in life.
Is that you?
i started out by playing 1,330 5 min. blitz games in about 3 months. my rating was stuck around 1180 & i was beginning to drool a little but i got a lot of games under my belt. then i stopped playing for 2 1/2 months then started up with live standard games & picked up 200 points on my rating but i'm stagnating again. i was thinking of switching to 10 or 5 min. games just to see what happens. i know this is not by the book but i'm having fun finding my own way.
