At ChessGoals we know that you want to increase your chess rating. In order to improve you need clarity on what to study. The problem is there are too many chess books, videos, courses to wade through which makes you feel overwhelmed and frustrated. We believe that chess improvement should be simple and fun.

We understand what it’s like to spend months or years without any rating gains. That’s why we surveyed hundreds of chess players to see who improved and how they improved. Here’s how it works. First you select a plan based on your current rating. Next you will follow the plan for twelve weeks. At the end of twelve weeks you will have formed a habit for chess improvement and seen rating gains. So buy a study plan so you can stop your slump and start seeing results.
