I have a dream of becoming a chess master to be able to coach chess better for the Selmer Chess Club which my site is this: http://selmerschessclub.webs.com/. Any Advice?
Well, to be honest, if 1982 really is your birth year, you've pretty much missed the boat. Thirty-one years old and a rating (on this site) of 1080, doesn't bode well. Dream something more attainable.
It takes tons of time and dedication to playing & studying chess in a competitive environment. If you do ever accomplish this, you may find yourself wondering if it was worth the sacrifice.
Chess is a game of luck, so you just have to be lucky
Don a big puppethead and act like a jerk all the time (that's how I did it).
Roughly ten thousand hours of practice would get you close. How close depends on how effective your practice is...
Ofcourse, you could always take the puppethead method.
Or get lucky, chess is a game of luck after all
Do you know where Carnegie Hall is?
You get there the same way......
In every situation, first always ask yourself the question: >>What would Kasparov do?<<
I want to thank everyone who gave there advice to me.
And attack at ALL TIMES. Thats the important thing to remember. Even when it makes no sense at all just throw everything out there. Get there firstest with the mostest, thats the right philosophy.
I hope you know I'm kidding
Achieve Danny Rensch total board nirvana.
Or a John Grefe everlasting om state.
Time dedication practice and studying all of that is not enough chess is a contest of nerves extreme pressure,shock surprise and stress you either have what it takes to handle and survive it at the compeitive level or you just don't.
Some men shatter like a mirror into a thousand little pieces on the floor when they lose, some have meltdowns and nervous breakdowns they end up in the hospital, some men quit and never play chess ever again after devastating losses where so much was on the line it's too much they are never the same.
Think about it!
My God, this game is dangerous!
Good luck with all this! It's a goal worth achieving!
