Chess tips

I want to improve in chess so if any one has tips please tell

Get a coach..preferably a master of some sort...
thats it

One of the dumbest misnomers in chess ever is that coach does all the job, half the job, or 0.0001% the job for you.

The job of the coach is to make you capable of working on your own on everything and to help you with something you are stuck with and something you've tried on your own beforehand.
And possibly to give repertoire tips. (And obviously, to analyze your OTB games, that goes without saying.)

If you want to get to a high rating, you have to work on your own and quite a lot unless you're pretty talented.

Regarding general tips, it's as simple as doing tactics frequently and learning basic endgame positions/checkmates (you don't want to get N+B vs nothing and draw that in a real game).
As for positional understanding, besides some books like Alekhine's book on NYC tournaments in 1924 and 1927 or Gelfand's Positional/Dynamic Decision Making in chess or some other, what's necessary is personal experience in official tournaments. Understanding does not come by snapping fingers a few times.

I wonder why my 'get a coach' was thumbed down by 5 people
Most decent players have some sort of coach...
Whoever thumbed me down seems pretty ignorent tbh

I guess Pushwood gets thumbs up because he is the 'NM' whatever the hell that daft title is supposed to mean
