Many players are asking me the same question, is it possible to improve at chess in their 30s, 40s or 50s? What are the main obstacles that prevent the majority of adult players to make progress at chess and reach their goals? Surprisingly, lack of motivation, is the biggest progress stopper at chess and life alike. Many adult players are simply not motivated enough to get better at chess.
