Improving at Chess

Many times I run across kids and parents that are wondering how to improve at chess but have no idea what options are available, or even what types of resources to look for. I decided to write this article to help people who are searching to improve their chess playing ability.

Chess is work and study, but it is fun and rewarding. It is important to have a goal in mind, decide what you”re trying to accomplish and then choose the options and tools that best suit your needs. For example if you”re a young player looking to be the next chess master in town then you”ll need to devote an amount of time and have a study schedule, if you just want to learn a few new tricks to try out at the club or local tournament then a small tactics book would be all you need!
