I enjoy playing chess and am trying to get better and learn more about the game.
Right now I am Studying chess mainly, The best place to do it is here, on chess.com! Study Plans are the best way to learn and get better. Tactic trainer is a big priority for me right now, as I work on my tactics! I recently went to a great chess camp: OleChess Camp. It was amazing! There were many top players there to teach me. Now I am preparing for this upcoming season of chess tournaments.
If anyone asks me why I play chess, I tell them: well, It's fun! I love thinking about moves and playing people from all around the world!
Some of my favorite chess players around that I have met and played are john Bartholomew (Who was my coach last year), Irena Krush (5 time woman's USA champion, who was my instructor at chess camp), and Greg Serper, who is a really good GM with great lessons.
In order to be good at chess you need patience, Determination, and you need to study and play games.
My favorite quotes include:
The single most important thing in life is to believe in youself regardless of what everyone else says. - Hikaru Nakamura
there is no such thing as an almost finish line, there is no such thing as a maybe finish line, all there is is a finish line. - from the book Drums Girls and Dangerous Pie.
