    I want to know if there is anyone out there who would like to share their knowlege of the game with a young student. I have had my rating in the 1500, for the most part, I am a 1350 to 1400 player. Any advice, or thoughts? Let me know!
    Thanks

    I used to be rated USCF 2002 and I would be happy to offer any advice that I can. At least it's free. (Then again, you get what you pay for!)

    I think U need a strong player who guides U on board. For me this is the only way to improve Ur level. If U want just a tip or a question about a particular position...U can simply post it!

    Who is the "best coach in the world"

    The best coach isn't always the most expensive, or the highest rated. Keep that in mind

    I would ask Kmac27.

    He got me started on some stuff. I am just a knuckle head. But he definitely knows the game.

    So does Dragon Fire.

    There seems to be quite a few that could help you out. You just may need to ask them directly via e-mail.

    And who is to say that you can not try a couple at once?

    Money is made of paper, so even though money doesn't grow on trees, it does come from trees.

    Actually, I think current US currency is made out of a sort of cloth weave. Maybe it's part paper though.
