Lol what makes you think you can reach 2300 when you can't stay in 2100? Rapid ratings also become harder the achieve compared to blitz after around 2200. 2300 rapid is already more impressive then 2300 blitz

This is 100% true, 2300 rapid is super impressive, especially while playing 15 + 10 instead of 10 + 0 like the vast majority of players in the pool.

It is impressive but that isn't harder to get than 2100 blitz acualy I have seen multiple people 2300 rapid but only 2100 -2200 blitz (btw they play primarily blitz )

So do I ! 2300 seems a long way off again at the moment.

My first thought was that I needed to stop playing 'secondary' openings which I do because I don't have a great memory for lots of theory so I have always avoided main lines. But when I look at my analysis graphs, I am generally okay at the end of the opening so I am now thinking that chess opening choice is not THAT important after all. It is much more important to simply get into the type of position that you like.

I would love to know how a good chess coach would go about improving players stuck at what feels like their ceiling. I have followed all of the usual advice.

Is this really my ceiling ??

I would recommend trying different time controls everyone gets stuck but things like blitz chess is really helpful for rapid cause it builds intuition and helps find those easy moves quicker

Bullet =speed and time management (really good for converting endgames fast if low on time )

Blitz =fast thinking and pattern recognition

Rapid =better thinking

(Ps: if you want I could play a couple 10|5 or 15|10 games )

Ideally, I would like to play 30 minutes but it is pretty much impossible to get paired. I have always shied away from Blitz and Bullet because I don't like to play without proper calculation. It is interesting though how prolific streamers such as Levy and Hikaru seem to have improved in classical chess.

I might try a few anonymous games - I am slightly worried about having a reasonably high (and honest) Rapid rating and a stupidly lower Blitz rating which I always think looks suspicious in opponents.

You can try lichess, maybe you'll get pairings there.
