The Fight For 1500
My current rating in Live - Standard with 30 minute time control is 1314. I started at around 1100 and in two weeks I have increased approximately 200 points.I am happy about this but I am still challenging myself to reach 1500. I keep practicing. I think my biggest obstacle right now it is that I just dont have enough knowledge of all the opening repetouires that I need to tackle the many openings I face. For example, 1. e4 c5 is an opening that I know for a fact I have no clue how to respond to. Studying is challenging without the access to books or money for a membership. So I have to go with what i can find on the internet. I posted a couple of forums. The guys in King's Gambit were really helpful. I think I need to focus more on analyzing my own games but I havent quite figured out how to do this with any really success.
