Coach Siddharth has helped my daughter improve her game by leaps and bounds. She’s more focused than before and I can see the tremendous difference in her game. Coach Siddharth has always been patient and has a way of being able to tailor lessons to each individual (I’ve taken a few lessons myself). He’s an awesomely talented person and his passion for teaching really comes through.

6 Tips For Improving Your Chess Game

Back around 2014, I decided I was going to improve at chess. I watched a few videos online about some openings, played a few dozen blitz games online, and then promptly lost interest within a week. Four years later, I decided to pick it up again and in less than a year, I had gone from 1100 to 1900 Elo rating online. Obviously, I changed how I went about my improvement! So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …

When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …
