144 ( +1 | -1 ) Dear gohan2535, What is wrong with your rating? Is it too low? What do you expect? 1300 is still low, and so is 1500! Why not just use your games to have fun or to train yourself in order that you can improve your skill? I cannot see any reason why you have to be proud or happy if you can reach 1500 while nothing changed with your skill.
My rating is around 1550 now. I can boost that in a few days (assuming that my opponents would finish the games quickly). But then what? Will I reach 2500? If only I could improve my skill by playing with you, I would love to challenge you. But I know that it is not good to choose opponents of too low or too high rating for training purposes.
I have 2 games with highly rated players. With cyrano (2900+) I have a Sicilian Najdorf defense. I use the game to understand this defense by looking into the game more deeply. It will improve my skill by deeply analyzing my game (and this is my defense of choice). With keiserpaul (2100+) I have a Halloween Gambit. With such a critical game, I have to think of exact moves, which at the end will improve my calculating skill. I have 2 chessboards setup in my room for these 2 games. The rest of the games are… you imagine that!
