my last year rating is about 600-800 (June 2010) and now 1664 (July 2011).
Do u think I improve alot?
That's an enormous improvement in only a year. Well done and keep up the good work.
Yes. Although your starting rating is a bit low. Though I assume that live chess is a little bit more difficult than turn-based.
I improved in 3 months from 1150 to 1450 and hope to become 1600ish (turn-based) before september :).
That is a very good improvement.
Why not share with everybody here how you did it?
well, i was just reading chess books, analyzing masters games and my own games, solving chess puzzles, play live chess.
what do u mean?
^ yes but to be honest most adults start out with a rating of 1200 or so...even if their rating rating drops beneath that it improves rather quickly. Getting to 1600 isn't hard at all, that's childs play. Getting your rating to over 1800 is.
You did improve a lot but it's not like you went through anything difficult. With some basic chess knowledge ANYONE can make it past 1600.
Indeed; anyone can get to be almost as good as RoseQueen, because if you're below RoseQueen then you're an idiot. However, once you make that skill increase that puts you above RoseQueen, then you no longer have a life.
