What do you do when your opponent makes mistakes within the first 5 moves?
You follow the opening principles and keep playing good moves. That’s ideally what you should be doing. And in this course, we will take this a step further.
At ChessMood, we always want to give you the practical stuff for everything we teach.
So here in this course, you’re going to see real games, where the opponent broke opening principles and got punished.
These are all commented games, some of them taken from our live stream.
As you watch, you’ll understand how a Grandmaster thinks when their opponent makes an early mistake, how to punish unnecessary pawn moves, early queen adventures and many other things.
