    I practice everyday and try to get better but there are so many people much better than at my same age.

    Im wondering whether or not I will be able to reach Class A or Class B without a chess coach. I am currently a 1460 USCF...

    Of course it is.  But it's easier to do with a coach since they can more easily identify your weaknesses and show you how to correct them.

    I like aww-rats's program.  I have watched a few of his videos and it got me back into playing correspondence chess.

    rats is doing all potential NMs a very big favor. In fact he is doing a very big favor for anyone who inspires to be a NM.

     

    Kudos!

    You can go all the way up to GM without coach.

    Doubtful.  Please name some GM's that didn't have any coaches.

    Yes it is, but it takes a lot of hard work. I am trying to do so right now, as reaching NM is my life goal for chess.

    thx everyone

    @aww-rats I'm still having trouble following the main part of your program; analyzing my games after I finish. Does this mean I play my game over again from move 1 and see what I could have done better. Thanks everyone!
