Yet Another Improvement Advice Thread

Mandalore_KEK

I've only just joined (in fairness I've won my debut game) though both of us blundered badly at times.

 

Anyway, the advice from someone I was watching on Youtube (John Bartholomew) is you have to get to the stage where you avoid direct materiel-giveaway blunders. Not "thirteen moves ahead is mate" blunders, but basic blunders of directly giving materiel. He says that's where the sub 1200 people get stuck on, you have to get to the stage - by practice.

 

Anyway go to his YT channel, he's 2300 or so and he plays people, sub 1000, 1000-1200, 1200-1400, etc., with commentary and you can see what he's talking about. He also gives solid tips on what to do as well as what not to do.
