My name is Lauren Goodkind and I'm a chess teacher based in the San Francisco bay area.  I offer a free ebook on my website for beginners on how to get better: www.ChessByLauren.com.    

   I recommend reading tactic books, hiring a chess coach, and playing games with a slow time control.  

  I hope that this helps.  

Thx

Well, it lets you the choice between four options:

_ Learn French

_ Learn descriptive notation

_ Find a version of the book in algrebraic notation

_ Forget about that book

I'm thinking to select 1-3 options  Tonya waana agame

Not now, I just woke up, and still need sleep, do like 5 typos a line...

I think option 3 is the best (if possible), I don't like the descriptive notation.

Sorry

Study books on a board. Look at like ten annotated games a day. Work hard on your Endgames.

Ok, for working on end games any suggestions? I can’t get chess books.  And for annonoted games like master games or my games?

 

End games:  in Chess.com, set up a position that is something like Rook plus 5 pawns vs Rook vs 2 pawns.  Play the hardest computer available.  When you win consistently, go down to 5 pawns vs 3 pawns.  So on and so forth.  Analyze each game along the way.

 

Set up a 2 bishop vs bishop and knight end game and challenge someone within 200 points of your rating in daily.  2 games, one for each side, 3 days per move (2 days would be ok).  Study tons and tons of variations for each move.  Join a chess club that is in a vote chess league and join games that are in the end game phase.  For each move do lots of variations, and post your results to support your suggestions.

 

All of these you can do on your own with the possible help of one of hte many chess clubs, and possible of one person who will respond to your challenges.  But you DO need to have a computer with analysis abilities, such as the one Chess.com has.

 

But let me tell you - moving up at these levels is slow.  SO MANY end game scenarios (not to mention so many opening variations, and so many tactical variations, so on and so forth).

For the record, I am over 1800 in daily, and trying to get my live chess ratings up over where they are now.  I am working hard on openings as well as end games, along with trying to learn as many mating patterns when they occur along the way.
