Finally reached Lichess rating of 2000! (Rapid rating)
That had been my goal for some time but I only managed to achieve it after 1000 games or so. (See my Lichess profile.) I have no coach so I mostly learn from YouTube videos such as from GingerGM and the Saint Louis Chess Club. Those have helped a lot.
Note: Lichess rating is inflated, so 2000 Lichess is nowhere near 2000 FIDE unfortunately.

Tip: Also World Champion Garry Kasparov’s Masterclass is incredibly helpful for beginning to intermediate players to improve their game. In fact, my ideal opening is Kasparov’s Queen’s Gambit variation with Bd3 and Ne2, aiming for a f3 and e4 expanding in the center. This opening is incredibly powerful and commonly played by Kasparov and his teacher Botvinnik.
