How can I get the title of CM??
You need a FIDE rating of 2200 and then ask them if you can get the title when you've reached it would be my best guess.
I should get an NM title simply because it's my initials.
My son's initials are GM..
Sometimes when playing chess i have plenty of BO
Totally tmi, but lol.
you must pay for your very name title...
If I am going to put in 22 hours a week, how would you recommend I split it up? ( I am 1200)
You can get AMM and AM easy.
AM: Wake up before noon
AMM (Anime master): Watch too much..
3 hours tactics study, that's all. In your rating that is just enough.
CM = Candidate Master. 2000-2199 USCF. USCF promoted this title years ago instead of Expert, but it never caught on.
FM = FIDE Master. Honorary title given masters for scoring well per FIDE guidelines . For me, back in the 80's, I had to score over 60% against title players in three separate events, facing a minimum of titled player in each event. The events had to be within a couple years. I played in a couple round robin events in Minneapolis, and I played in two Midwest Masters in Chicago.
IM = International Master. Same as FM but the performance requirements are tougher. (I have an ICCF IM title where I had to score well but in correspondence chess. Somewhat the same.)
GM = Grandmaster. Requires a higher rating (> 2400 maybe >2450) and with yet even tougher performance requirements.
Larry Kaufman got his GM title by winning the World Senior Chess Championship, so there are exceptions in how one can obtain a title. But usually it takes playing in several events of the right type, and then scoring well.
CM=2000-2199 USCF/win an International tournament representing your country.
Aiming for a chess title at 1200 rating? Two hours chess study and 20 hours praying.
The one and only requirement for the FM title is getting over 2300 FIDE, and of course applying for the title.
I never said that was what I am aiming for, I asked for study advice from somebody who improved quickly. I don't have a specific goal, only improvement is my goal
