IM 1420 rated player.Im 14 how fast can i get to 1900? If i work hard in 1,2,3,4 years?
I gained 1000 points in a year when I started studying chess. Just make sure to win all your games and your rating can go up really fast.
I've gained almost 900 in six months. Granted, my first rating was only 694, as I went 0-4 in my first tournament, so I did start extremely underated, but with hard work you can improve. I'm planning on studying a lot over the summer and am hoping to break 1800 within a few months. The most important thing you can do to gain rating points is to go to big tournaments and play up, for example I played U1900 in the chicago open despite having a 1500 ish rating, and a supplement of 1339 (I could have played U1500). I went 3/7 and will probably gain a ton of rating points, just because I drew a few 1800 players (+1 -2 =4)
I'd say you can do it in about 6 months with a regular study/play schedule. Like eight to ten hours a day studying and 2 hours playing on weekdays, four hours of study on saturday with six hours of playing, and taking sundays off.
Couple of years - depends on your talent, dedication and quality of training
