it took me going down 700+ point in the beginning (5-6 months ago) to get to where i am at my current blitz rating. my improvement was fast because i study chess 3-4 hours a day...

Research the bongcloud opening. It's a very reclusive opening that leads to a great middlegame.

Dear Chessfriend,

Due to this coronavirus situation, I lowered my prices. Instead of 30 EUR or 35 USD /hour, my new pupils get a discount, so the new prices are 25 EUR or 30 USD/hour. happy.png Don't hesitate to send me a message. happy.png

 

My name is Gabor Balazs. I am a Hungarian FM, fighting for the IM title. My top ELO is 2435. I have been playing chess for 21 years. I won the Hungarian Rapid Championship twice (U16 and U18).

I love teaching chess and it is very important for me that both of us enjoy the lessons beside the hard work. I have pupils almost all the levels from beginners to advanced players (1100-2200 ELO).

Why should you choose me?

- I have a widespread opening repertoire (a lot of openings are analysed by strong Grand Masters).

- I have a lot of chess books in PDF and Chessbase format, so I can teach you the main middlegame plans, the art of calculations, famous chess games and the endgame theory.

- I have elaborated, personalized training plans, which help you to improve your skills effectively.

- I help you analyse your games deeply, so you can realise your mistakes and learn from them.

- I am really flexible and hard-working person, the quality of my work is really important for me.

Please, contact me (balazsgabor1991@gmail.com), if you are interested in working with me, I am looking forward to your message.

challange me who want compition

get really fast at puzzle rush then challenge a pro to 1/0 chess - you will have a fair chance of skanking a win off them with that skillset

To beat stronger players you have to “complicate” the position for them.  The more tension and pieces threatening each other makes it harder for them to analyze and increases the odds of a mistake

Maybe slow your games down and not play blitz so much

beating a pro at chess is one thing, but what about beating a con ?

English grammar competition? Sure.

Make chess pieces out of silly string, and when he's not looking, unravel a piece and beat him senseless.

Grind it out patiently, and take the game deep

Convince the pro he should play blindfolded since a lot of GMs can do it too. Maybe his ego is so big that he accepts even tho he cant play like that.

You should try to get good at chess and watch moves always have a rule book on hand and talk with them a lot to get them distracted so the make a bad move r they run out of time I sometimes make people think I speak another language in the chat and then they spend all there time figuring out what I said when really it is jiberish

Most pro-players (Well, to me, "pro" is anything above 1000) ignore my open challenges due to my low score, but occasionally one will accept for god knows what reason. Pity? Easy win for self-esteem? Idk. Anyway, the simple truth is that you usually can't beat them. You can either resign when you start feeling too discouraged, or you can play until they put you in checkmate. I usually do the former, but once I did the latter, and it resulted in the relatively better player taking me under his wing for a bit, so that was nice happy.png
