How to increase your rating fast ?

Jan 22, 2008, 12:45 AM |


If you are rated less than 1800 and really want to improve... 

Do daily tactic : On the net (Chess Tempo or Chess Tactics Server) or whith your favorite program (CTB, Ct-Art 3.0, Chessimo) but train every day.

Not less than 15 min a day. Preferably one hour a day : half hour in the morning and repeat later.  Train your tactic muscle. No rest day ! Do this for 21 days at least !  
Tactic is almost undoubtedly the most productive single area that beginners and intermediates can study to improve their game – the more practice, the better.                                                                                                                               Dan Heisman  (Novice Nook n°4)
