’ve been asked by a number of players, especially newcomers to Correspondence Chess as to how they can get their ratings higher quickly.
Going beyond the obvious “Win all your games quickly” sarcastic response there are a number of ideas to consider which can accelerate you development.
Let’s assume you dont hve a FIDE rating then the only options available to you are:
To accelerate you development you want to be winning or drawing against the highest rated players possible – as , in simple terms, the ratings of your opponents pegs your rating.
So not a lot of date but there are two types of event which do offer us hope
So if you want to accelerate your rating development then you need access to higher rated opposition and the best way to achieve this is to keep a eye out for the Champions League and Non Accelerated International Opens.
