You can’t deny the power of the Internet to improve your chess skills, regardless if you’re a student or an experienced player. I’m sure anyone who has tried to type “chess strategies”, or “chess tactic” into a search engine, will admit that it can be difficult to find the right information. What should I do? Are there any online chess lessons? Are they useful? Which chess strategies information you have is accurate? And which one is inaccurate, misleading, or erroneous. Which chess products is worth purchasing?
These are the key pieces of information I want to share with you in order to make your search for chess strategy easier. This information will make it easier to search the Internet for the best chess strategies information to help you improve your rating.
First, do some research about the author of what you are reading. Is their chess rating available? What length of time have they been coaching? Do their students have success on the chess board or in coaching? Don’t trust everything you see online.
Second, do a quick Google search for the name of the writer or the resource you recommend. I find the chess forum to be an excellent resource. You will find a lot of experienced players sharing their chess strategies and tactics on this forum. It is important to remember that not everything posted on a forum can be believed. You can generally trust the consensus of the majority of forum posters if they are positive about the resource in question. You can click on the profile of the forum poster (usually by clicking on their name to left of the post), where you will find their experience level and chess rating. This information will help you determine whether or not the post is valid. (You can access my Chess Exchange Forum by clicking the “resources” button at the bottom of my website.
I have found the chess forum to be an excellent place to find new resources for improving chess, and to ask questions about chess strategy. They are extremely generous with their time. Many times, they will answer your questions in detail and provide great answers.
