Can I reach 1500 online rapid by the end of the year?


True but I do better in sharp lines against higher rated players I can't win in the solid ones tho

What opening do you play as white?

What opening do you play against 1.e4 as Black?

What opening do you play against 1.d4 as Black?


White I play e4 and d5 (whatever I feel like) sometimes queens gambit ,Italian, so on

Black i try to play the main line if I know it for the counter to each opening

I have put my Endgame study on hold for now.

I am currently working on a few new openings.


I have been stuck on reaching 2200 rating.

I have never reached 2200 on any chess site, yet.

I think studying Endgames will help me finally break into 2200 range.

However, I have prolonging the study because I think it will be Embarrassing/Bad if I reach 2200 right now.


I have reached 2100 and I have faced Title players, but I have never played Classical Chess.

I think it would be Embarrassing to reach 2200 and not know how to play 1…e5 or 1…d5.


I think when a person reaches 2200 they become a chess role model and lower level players look up to those people and want to learn or get advice from them.

It would be pretty sad if I got 2200 and little kid was to walk up and ask me for advice in a Slav line and I had no response because I never played it before in my life. LOL

I have played KID & Gruenfeld for the majority of my chess career vs. 1.d4.

I have faced title players with those lines and they games are very sharp.

I lose more than I win vs. Title players, but the games are always wild and amazing.

But yeah I think I need to learn Classical chess.

oh am i meant to be a chess role model lol
