Finally finally i have passed the 1500 mark in Live Blitz chess. It took me over a year with very light study but Im looking forward to getting over 2000 here over the next 6 months to a year. Hopefully i can throw a CM or FM Title in there somewhere while im at it! Man this is exciting!
Ah, the optimism of youth...
Youth? Man im 26
1500 in a year? You know 0-1500 is not such a big step comparing to 1500-2000.
Yeah but im talking about i was one of the worst chess players on Earth a year ago and i would go sometimes 5 or 6 days without so much as looking at a chess board so due to the time given its good. ill top 2000 just give me time
Congrats on reaching your milestone. Maybe you should give yourself a bit more time for 1500 to 2000, though, at least if you keep going as you have thus far.
test out different openings

"Stop saying I'm tense, Dammit! And go get me a valium!"

Thank you Zen
Not on this site to make any friends. Im on it to use people to get better. And i stay in Southwest Fort Worth so im not going all the way to Dallas to play OTB chess with anyone.
I also live in SW FW and I went to an OTB tournament in Watauga. They have regular tournaments for cash. I finished 2nd out of 10 players with +2-0=1 and won $35 (EF $20) so it is well worth your time.
" Im on it to use people to get better. "
Quite a humanitarian, I see!

chess Student you are a very poor looser leaving the game without resigning

Maybe you should work on sportsmanship instead of worrying about your rating. No one will remember your rating. People will remember this kind of stuff for years.
I agree. That's what ShadowKnight was getting at too. What do you expect from someone that doesn't care about sportsmanship; someone that seems to think his opponents are merely to be "used" to further his own experience.
Then of course there was EightPackKilla's: "You really suck."
What goes around...
