How can I improve my current rating of 1600 to 2000 and beyond?


Hi all,

I have recently been studying chess non-stop and have been getting regular coaching by FM Jonathan Blackburn. I am 12 years old but am looking for ways to possibly boost my progression rate to the maximum! Any feedback is highly appreciated. :-)


Win more games. Think like the top GMs. Memorize their games.


I don't think that there is a Guinness World Record for the worst way to respond to a question about chess improvement. I may be wrong?


Solve tactical puzzles , more more and more of them !

It's better to buy a book , because they are arranged there in strength, topics etc...


Read Woodpecker Method by Axel Smith and Hans Tikkanen. Go through the whole book and when you finish it start it again



Why do they put the perspective for white always? This one is black to move.
