@EnergeticHay, what is the number of chess puzzles(or puzzle rush) you would recommend doing every day?

A lot of us fall into the trap of playing chess on "autopilot", or playing when we don't have a lot of time, degrading our calculational skills. How would you recommend studying when you don't have a lot of time or are fatigued from a full-time job?

If a low level player hardly ever play games and therefore is stuck around 1100 rating forever, but they think they are better than they were 5 years ago, then at what tactics rating ought they start diverting chess time to learning strategy and/or openings rather than just doing more and more and more tactics?

If you play games against the computer set at a particular rating, at what score should you up the level of your computer opponent?

Go to the fide website, and register ig.

You need to play in Fide rated tournaments, instead of Uscf, to get a fide. Look at the website for tournaments near where you live

I would recommend doing tactics books instead, but if you want to do puzzle rush or chess puzzles I think spending 15-30 min is ok i guess

I think if you're not really improving, then you should work on all aspects of the game. Analyze your own strengths and weaknesses. If you're good at tactics, then do less of it

Best move for an improving low-level player to play to learn from future analysis ...

1. as White after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6?

2. as Black after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3?

3. as Black playing the QGD ... aim for Tartakower or 5...Nbd2?

1. Bc4
2. Nc6
3. not quite sure...

 

Thank you! Now allow me to ask you for clarification regarding your answer to number 1: 

1. If 3.Bc4 for the lower level player, then should such a player play d3 first or go for d4 early?

2. How do you rank the rest of these options for improvers on move 3 (after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6): 3.Bb5, 3.d4, and 3,Nc3?

What I mean is ,,, If I play against the computer and set it to a 1200-level of play and analyze those games, then at what point is it best to increase the strength of the computer to say 1225?  After I have scored 25% in a match of 4 games?  After I beat it twice in a row (once as white, once as black)? If I can beat it in a world championship match (first to score 6)?  Thanks.
