Hi, that is true but we need to keep in mind that players with the same rating don`t have the same knowledge. Some can be better in the opening, other in middle game and endings. Then you have players that have done professional training and have the same or lower rating at the moment but soon will progress very fast.  They can give you good advice in my opinion. My point is that anyone can give you advise it's up to you to follow up or not. At the same time, I didn`t notice many lower rating players giving a lot of advice.

Not sure are you heading with this to "Beggars can't be choosers" or you are fan of Rolling Stones?

My advice would be to play better, then you will likely win more and your rating will go up. Good luck!

This is not necessarily so. The principles of learning chess apply across a wide range of ratings. The same holds true of many other disciplines as well.

*note, I know the person that made the comment I quoted closed their account, but my reply is for others reading along.
