    Ep. 151 Kamryn (Youtuber) (1526 USCF)

    This week on Chess Journeys, I spoke with Kamryn, otherwise known as Kamryn Heidi on Youtube and Twitch. We talked about her journey since out last chat (ep. 73). Kamryn has continued to see ratings gains in blitz, bullet, and USCF. We also discussed our experiences at the National Open in Las Vegas last weekend. We both had an amazing time and had successful tournaments.

    Ep. 149 Jay Garrison (1907 USCF)

    Ep. 149 Jay Garrison (1907 USCF)

    This week on Chess Journeys, I spoke with Jay Garrison about his meteoric rise from 1901 to 1907 in just 2 years! It was a great conversation about the pains of the pits of despair. Over a 2 year span, Jay hit his floor of 1700 twice, and he reflected on the pains it caused. Jay talked about his process, rethinking his process, and eventually overhauling his process. Now Jay spends most of his time turning knowledge into skill with a lot of blitz against higher rated opponents.

    Ep. 148 Dylan (1250 USCF)

    This week on Chess Journeys, I spoke with Dylan. He’s a high school teacher, parent, and dedicated chess improver. In a few years, Dylan has gained a lot of ELO on Lichess. But we talked about his comparably low USCF rating. Dylan talked about resources that helped him on his journey such as Naroditsky, Chess Brahs, and Hanging Pawns videos. He also talked about running the chess club at his school and for his young child.

    This week on Chess Journeys, I spoke with Ingvar. He’s the assistant tournament director of the Reykjavik Open, FIDE trainer, and FIDE arbiter. We talked about his massive jumps in the early 2000’s and his quest to reach IM today. Ingvar recommended three books that he credits for a quick 300 point jump, especially Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy.

    Ep. 146 Noah (1750 ECF)

    Ep. 146 Noah (1750 ECF)

    This week on Chess Journeys, I spoke with Noah. Noah has gained about 500 points in the last year. We spent a lot of time discussing tactics training, and how Noah applies learning science to his approach. We talk talked about over the board chess, reading chess books, and his opening experiment. Spoiler alert, Noah has only worked out a black repertoire as part of an experiment. Noah’s friendly and energetic approach to learning is contagious!
