Ways to Get Better

1. Study the rules carefully, especially sections:

  • How are scores calculated?

  • Arena Berserk

  • The winner of the last tournament used the Arena Berserk option to get more points and play more games than other participants. Though it is not easy to play with half of their clock time, it may help you get points if you feel your opponent plays weaker then you.

2. Get to know your rating by playing rated games on This way
you will know your strength and this info will be useful when future tournaments have rating limitation.

3. Check your statistics on that your account generates.

  • Not only can you check your rating history, but you can also analyze your games and improve your skills. Here is an example from my Lichess account

  • Pay attention to the Chess Insights section - it contains some very interesting data from your chess matches.

4. Try lichess training section. It gives you great suggestions to increase your chess skills.
