Hello all,
I am a beginner rated in the 500’s and am having issues truly getting my rating up. I do puzzles, play bots, and have read Levy Rozman’s book. My question is are there any books yall found really helped you? I would also take any advice yall have to improve that worked well for you. I just play for fun im not hiring a coach or anything but would love yalls input. Thanks!
