well a German sparring partner of mine told me this right after playing a 90 | 30 game (he crushed me easily this time, and for a time I've been more or less winning most of our games)... I asked if he wanted some bullet or blitz games after analyzing our game... (sensing I wanted to take it even by winning in a faster time control) and he asked back, what's wrong with me with our earlier game? I told him I don't know. I never felt so 'low' in this point of my life. He then commented I seem to want things with faster payback... not so without delayed gratification.  Profound & true it seems...

 

Great things never come easy. If they are, everyone would be doing the same thing, so its not.. and never will be easy.

Congratulations!  That's an impressive climb.

In my case, I went from 1400 to 1800 in just over two years, but then got stuck at 1800 for about a decade.  It was a real struggle, but at the same time, finally hitting 2000 was all the sweeter.  Hopefully it doesn't take you near as long as me.  Good luck!

jonathanpiano13 danke too, @rishikeshwaran you're welcome

@SmithyQ thank you! It’s impressive that you still managed to reach 2000 even after having gotten stuck for such a long climb. I hope I will join the 2000 club some day.

But, I have never read a chess book in my life and never even spent a single euro on chess (it is a purely cost-free hobby for me)... That is probably something which needs to change if I want to continue improving.
