That also go for anyone else around 1200 :)
Uuuuh, almost 1500 views. Cmon 5 people!
seems like you managed to reach 1300++ within 16 months. congrats.
(edit, oops, a necro)
I think a lot of people on this site who are started at 1200, and immediately fall below it, have this as a goal.
Yep. I started playing chess around the start of 2015. I signed up for a chess.com account in April/May and my live rating dropped to around 800. I did a lot of casual studying and now I'm around 1255 just 4-5 months later. I hope to maintian or increase this speed of progression as I continue playing and learning.
After many months in despair struggling to improve my rating, finally I reach the 1300++. Just by studying the Stonewall Attack for white and Alekhine defense for e4 and King's Indian defense for d4. It is so surprising to get here just by learning and understanding few openings.
Anybody who prefers quiet positional play instead of sharp tactical play?
