get better at chess

GREETINGS & WELCOME to my chess website. Designed to promote, teach & share chess to kids of all ages. IN MARYLAND the ANNAPOLIS CHESS CLUB MEETS TUESDAY 6:30pm at WHOLE FOODS Supermarket, in the Parole Towne Center mall at the corner of Old Solomons Island Road (route 2) and West street. It is completely free, no dues or costs to play chess, just play for fun. Typically we have 8 or more boards going (16 players). Games end at 9:45 sharp. Play is in the Whole Food Markets' big table area near the corner entrance to the store.

As a Chess Trainer for many years, it is a very rewarding privilege to share the phenomena of Chess with so many students. And to know that they will go on to spread this phenomena for another 50, 60, even 70+ more years is an absolute honour. ~ Andrew K. Lubienski


Then the question actually becomes :
How exactly do we improve our chess skills? Well, there are specific things which you must do. And quite a few wrong ways to train. Improving our chess ability can be compared to climbing a mountain and you cannot expect to sprint all the way to the top of the chess mountain. It's just not that simple.

There are 'plateaus' which you will find that you need to acclimatize yourself with. That's just the way it is, you will get to a certain level and not be able to get further for a little while. The amount of wait depends mainly on how accurately your learning focuses on your specific needs. Instruction must be customized and accurately tailored!

If not Chess players can be frustratingly stuck and could lose interest due to stagnation. This does not happen often, but should be avoided anyway. An earnest student will derive terrific satisfaction by following this type of customized instruction. They will benefit greatly by witnessing measurable milestones. Custom instruction and foundational study is the best way up the chess mountain. We have an extremely effective drill for foundational study called '50 Q'. Please click here or on the button below named '50 Q' to see this very useful drill.

YOU WILL SEE an increase in your Elo chess ratings very soon if you just keep playing and taking notes. Just don't ever get discouraged. If you are a sore loser, then.....

Chess is sport, Chess is art, Chess is FUN!
