Question from beginner.


Hi everyone. I started playing chess during my online classes and now like the game very much. I have played around 800 games and now my rating is stuck at 700 . How can I increase it ( like how can I add on more skills in chess)?


Improving Your Chess - Resources for Beginners and Beyond...

On the 700 level the main problem is still the blunders, tunnel visions, misses. Play longer games, take more time to think. When your opponent moves, think why did he move like that. When thinking to move the piece, ask yourself “what was it doing before?”

Improving at chess can be quite challenging, but there are various ways to enhance your skills.

For those looking to improve without coaching, here's some valuable advice:

1. Play Frequently: The more you play, the better you'll become at recognizing patterns and making strategic decisions.
2. Analyze Your Games: Review your past games to identify mistakes and areas where you can improve. This self-analysis is a powerful learning tool.
3. Focus on Tactics: Tactics play a crucial role in chess. Spend time solving tactical puzzles and exercises to sharpen your tactical skills.
4. Learn from Masters: Studying grandmaster games can provide insights into advanced strategies and tactics.
