Hi...do u like to be my training partner?......anyways we can play some games with each-other if u like.
Are there anyone who wants to be my partner? My Fide rating is 1691.I’m passionate about chess and I want a partner who have a same mindset as me! We can share our material and ideas(like I can teach you how to play the French and King’s Indian)
coach you shared every practical issue of a alone player. I had this all issue. Because in past I had no partners but now due to chessmood I have everyhting
How you got partner
I need one for improving my chess
Ha ha coach! You have a great sense of humour.
Chess is an individual sport and most active chess players jealously guard their chess ideas & plans, although they are happy to share basic concepts which are freely available anyway, to anyone.
As for training partners & chess coaches, when I first joined here, I answered someone's request to train & play games. We played x2 games & they won and had a higher rating than me and I never heard a word back from them for more games! Why? Well, because they had no intention to help & train together, instead they were just wanting to gain improvement for themselves, without giving anything back to anyone else or even a passing thought to the concept of helping anyone else (especially someone they could win against & was lower rated than they are).Coach Avetik kindly provided me with a coach & unfortunately I forgot one of our coaching lessons and I apologised later, but again, never heard a word back (in fact I played him in the lichess tournament today & I played some different moves as an experimental training game but I doubt he has a clue about that). This is one problem I have as a lower rated player, everyone is usually higher rated than me, so I lose most games. The one game where my opponent was lower rated than me I could play my normal game & won).
All this is completely fine for me. I do know there is one good player on this site, who understands these issues and due to him I remain here (he doesn't know this of course). Meanwhile I will train & play here and improve, as I have all the determination to do it and yet I agree the limiting factor is having limited time. It is good to have good friends, but I will make do here as best I can! Happy chess training & play & remember RIGHT MOOD-RIGHT MOVE & COGRO friends!
