200 ELO Points in 6 Months

USChess.org has a great article on how Christian Galwe  increased 200 rating points in 6 months!

Here are a few of the recommendations from the article:

* Study your own games with an instructor

* Don’t study openings…study structures and plans instead.

* If you play blitz, play with a 5 second increment and always try to find the best move

* Review your blitz games just like if it were a standard game.

* Do tactical exercises everyday for at least 30-40 minutes.

* Keep physically fit.
