      Hi Samir,

      I really appreciate your kind words. The secret to massive improvement would be to work hard, which is easy to do if you have a passion for the game, and a “Never Give Up” attitude! I know it sounds standard, but these are some of the building blocks to become successful. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hey Akshat,
    I’m a freshman in highschool. I started to play chess in 7th grade. Please tell me…..what is your secret. I study openings a lot and have developed a repertoire, but every time I play in a tournament, people always play side lines. For example, I am well versed in the sicilian dragon, but no one play the open sicilian. How do you combat the side lines? And what do you think I should do, other than know my openings well, to improve my rating. I want to bring it up but it isn’t really going up. Thanks, Sandeep

      Hi Sandeep Akshanta,

      I’m sorry for my late response. Regarding sidelines, it’s impossible to avoid running into them. The only thing you can do is prepare and review your openings, and work on your strategic understanding of the game, so you’ll be able to manage when you run into a sideline. If you have a coach, you should definitely consult him as to how to deal with your problems, as he has a better understanding of you, and can help you deal with the problems more effectively.
      Good luck!

      Hi Suyu,

      I try to divide my time equally between openings, middlegames, and endgames. I don’t really play online that much nowadays, but I think playing blitz frequently is helpful, as it sharpens your intuition and helps you calculate quicker. Hope this helps!

      Hi Andrew,
      Sorry for my late reply.
      I have never coached before, although I may consider it in the future.
      In any case, if I decide to coach in the future, I will post it on my blog.
