my chess has got good over the past year regularlly drawing against 160 170 players evan though my grade has dropped 94 i stuggle preventing intercepts but what can i do to start beating 160 170 players is there any offensive rules that can prevent them from doing this
1) Using commas and periods would be nice.
2) Try to improve your tactics with an online tactics server daily.
3) Get a decent book on planning and strategy.
4) Go over GM games by playing "guess the move."
5) Analyze all your finished games in detail using a good chess engine.
