1600-1700 "Astute Intermediate. Player has better thought process, does not leave pieces en prise." Are you sure? When I was 1700, I dropped pieces all over the place, and every time I play one now, they usually drop a piece at one point or another.

it's true! Just today, I blundered back rank mate in a totally winning position, and instead of seeing it, my similarly rated opponent instead let me take his Queen. Enough said...

One more thing: 1600-1700 with 6-8 years of experience? That's a good one. I've been playing chess for 7 months now happy.png

Totally right, I don't even spend all that much time on chess lol and I'm 1600+ in 6 months!

Just about right where I should be for me. happy.png

This isn't really how things work. Among other things, there's no formula for how long it takes to get to a certain rating because that's highly dependent on age (and possibly also intelligence), even if we assume equal time and effort put in.

I kinda agree.  There are other factors involved besides age, ability, and motivation that influence how high a person's potential rating can get.  There's also opportunity (i.e. living in an area with frequent USCF-rated tourneys featuring high-enough rated players and/or having a large amount of spending money and/or having rich-enough parents).  For example, a kid could have the potential to become the next Magnus Carlsen and show enough talent and motivation to do so, but if that child grows up with poor parents in the middle of nowhere far, far away from the city where USCF-rated tourneys are held, then that child might have a hard time progressing (or not progress as fast as he could in better circumstances).

Full support from parents such as books, chess engine, chess database, coach fees and tournament attendance...would be the fastest way to gain high rating and becoming (NM, IM or GM) at young age.

Hi All. I am just trying to help. I am just trying to help. Hi All.I see people want to reach 1800 ratings, but it only achieve able with hard work and being discipline as you have to spent time on a regular basis. Let me tell you a fact that, even i was 1200 here in chessdotcom and have reached 1900+ in 4 years because I was not regularly playing.I used to play only 3 months in a whole year which is not good enough.I didn't even try to think like 1500, 1700, 1900 mind sets in the game. Just be regular and try to play higher rated opponents so that you will come to know your weakness in your game. I stream chess games, puzzles ,puzzles battle for 1200-1800 rated players on regular basics and play with all people who wanted to feel how 1800 rated player game taste like.You can add me as friend and send challenges on chess.com. (Username you know already).You can catch me on www.twitch.com/corporatechessguy for livestream. I hope you all get a chance to play with 1800 Player like me, as other high rated players don't except challenges from lower rated player to be honest. Hoping to receive more friend request on chessdotcom and followers on twitch. Most important, you are always welcome to try out your tournament practise with me. Let's play together!
