The advice about joining a club is best.
If it's a good club there will be times when you will pick up more much
in one evening that you would after a month of monk like study.

I am 15 years old. I've been playing chess for about ten years. I would like to reach a master level one day. I only read books in my spare time, but I'm not always sure what I should be studying to further improve my game. Please give me some advice.
Originally posted by fi092369You can always improve. Some players are grandmasters at 15, so 1700 at 15 is far from being the peak in someone's chess career.
Help you improve? gee! you're only 15 and have a rating above 1700... I wish I had that rating and I'm more than twice your age!
I say worry about something else kid, your chess is better than most of us.

You meet in the flesh loads of people with the same interest as you.
There will be players of varying strength to skittle against, trade ideas with.
If you want to play net chess all the time then fine.
But the real enjoyment comes from OTB play. At a club yo ...[text shortened]... play in 4 different

i have always wondered about this, how is a chess club likely to help you? We make
our own decisions at the board based on our own evaluations with our minds, how can
a club help us with that? This is not a 'dig', at you GP, i really have wondered about it
to be honest.
