keep losing

Terminator-T800

If you can't past 800 that would only mean one thing. You don't love the game enough yet.

Can’t get my rating past 800

Chess isn't always about winning you know. If you love something then you're going to do it no matter what. I'm always losing constantly however I love to play chess and will continue playing and that is how I will learn. I've found that playing with someone who is willing to help you (usually someone who is higher rated than I) is a great weapon to have up your sleeve because they're personally training you one on one and you get all the attention and help you need.

So true. It takes time to learn how to do anything in life. I play the piano and am still forever learning however I keep on going to reach a higher goal. happy.png

Thanks for the tips and comments!

I also found that taking the lessons on here also improved my playing immensely.

Do you analyze your own games? Could imagine that could help, maybe it's just one or two things holding you back and if you find those things, I could imagine you'd improve very quickly then. Do you bring out your queen too early and she gets pushed around? Developing your pieces quickly? Protecting your king (castling, keeping pawns close)? Keeping a good pawn structure in general?

Seriously, I let my dog play online sometimes and she's rated 950. Granted she's very smart for but she's still a dog. 

Lzolz! Touché!
