  3. Getting into High Ratings and Defeating Them

Hi, I'm currently looking for advice on getting higher on the rating ladder
I've also been playing chess with a local chess competition winner in our place and I cannot seem
to beat him
Even If I deeply think on every move he always find ways to exploit and create openings on my play.
I would wan't some tips from you guys using my recently played chess games on my profile.
Note that not all games I play in this website is always that I think very hard on it.
I just usually play on instinct and not on reasoning since I get tired thinking too much.

There‘s hardly anything secret or a short-cut. It’s hard work for years. Expose yourself to chess content, learn and adapt.

A beginners book or a book for advanced players might help. On your level they all recommend Silman.

PS: I just looked at the very last game, 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6, stopped. Take a beginner’s book!

"I would wan't some tips from you guys using my recently played chess games on my profile."
I do not see any suitable games for analysis: only blitz, casual, engine games... Play some rated classical or rapid.
"Note that not all games I play in this website is always that I think very hard on it."
This is like a runner who says he cannot keep up with the other runners but at the same time says he does not run as hard as he could. Think harder!
"I just usually play on instinct and not on reasoning since I get tired thinking too much."
That is like a runner who says he does not run that fast because he gets tired. If you want to get higher on the ladder, then you have to think harder. A strong player can play blitz on instinct, because he has played many tiring classical games, that gave him a vast experience.
