What I learnt?

Openings:

I worked on Jobava video again because it's not common at my level.

Middlegames: 

I studied maroczy's pawn str. today and completed 5th chapter (Based on white's Kingside Attacking plans in Maroczy such as f4-f5 or Re3-Rh3 shifts ) with my training partner.

I also worked on half game of Capablanca's Best Endings with my partner @Jay_Garrison

I analyzed two games of Tigran Petrosian from the book called Petrosian Move by Move with @Devansh_Shah

1. Uddenfeldt vs Petrosian Nice Olympiad 1974.

A lot ideas about how to outplay the opponent in symmetrical position we learnt from this game. Also the ending with rook against knight was instructive and we learnt new ideas.

2. Petrosian vs Visier Segovia Nice Olympiad 1974.

In this game I was stuck a bit because I am not super good in this KID pawn formations but with the help of my expert KID friend @Devansh_Shah we found almost all the nice ideas and grasped a lot attacking stuffs. Normally Petrosian do not like to attack but acc to Var Akobian (When Petrosian Attack it's Mate ). So this is what we saw in this game. When he attack it's mate. 

Well, I studied so little today because I am sick and unable to focus well. I hope I will be fine soon then my real work level will become alive again.

What I learnt?

Openings:
Trompowsky Attack  Watched Video and grasped plans and variations again.

~~~Middlegames~~~

Chessmood Classical Commented Games:
Alexander Alekhine vs Akiba Rubinstein 1912.
Reti vs Yates 1924

Art of Attack:
1. Steinitz vs Golmayo Havana 1888
2. Alekhine vs Asgeirsson Reykjavik 1931 
3. Tolush vs Renter Estonian Championship 1945.

Pawn Structures:
 1. Studied 28 Pages from Understanding the Maroczy Structures. It was chapter 6th
and topic was A Leap to d5.   Note: I went through them to grasp concepts because most of the things are already covered by ChessMood.
There are few things which I learnt from the pages:
(1) When we play Nd5 then it will be superb if we recapture on d5 with the knight.
(2) When we play cxd5 then we can fight for the c file for attack and future invasion 
of the c7 square. We can take cxd5 only if we will keep control of the c file. Cxd5
is also useful if black have queenside weaknesses in pawn formation such as a7-b6
weakens the c6 square and b7-a6 weakens the b6 square. There is also typical way to 
annoy black by playing g3- Bh3 in order to control the c8 square so black will never
be able to fight for the c file. 
(3) When we captures exd5 then we can target the potential weakness on e7. Black can 
defend it with Bf6 and Kf8. Once we double or triple on e file we have freedom to do 
a lot maneuvering to improve our pieces and exerts more pressure. Sometimes combine 
with f4. 
Note: More learnings I will share tomorrow once chapter will over. Because right now exd5 is just started.

2. Studied first two games of Gruenfeld Pawn formations from Chess Structures
 a Grandmaster Guide by Mauricio Flores Rios.
The games topics were importance of the c file control in the structure~~
(1) First game presented in book was played between Anatoly Karpov and Garry Kasparov
Round 17th of WCC 1990. In this game after Re8? Kasparov was positionally lost because
he lost control of the crutial c- file. Later Karpov won the game using his famous
Karpovian Approach.
(2) Second game was played between Wesley So and Mauricio Flores Rios. In the game black
was hoping to get a draw against a very strong player but he was not aware of the 
game played between Karpov and Kasparov so in the end he found himself in problem 
and white won easily due to excellent control of the c file.

3. Fundamental Decision Making in Chess by RB Ramesh.
Read about Logical Reasoning and Chapter one will start from tomorrow. In the logical Reasoning section author included game of Magnus against Aronian

~~~ Endgames~~~

I learnt two theoretical  Endings:
(1) Lucena with a rook pawn win and draw stuffs.
(2) Vancura Positions. 

Practical Endgames:
I analyzed one game from Capablanca's Best Endings with @Jay_Garrison
1. Em. Lasker vs Capablanca 1921 ( Game 32)

Phew, Now I am super tired and have no energy to open my eyes. Now I am going to bed. Next update will come tomorrow night!!!

What I learnt:

Chessmood Classical Commented Games:

(1) Avetik Grigoryan vs Hovhannisyan 2006

(2)  Johner vs Aron Nimzowitsch 1926

(3) Petrosian vs Bannik 1958 


Pawn Structures:

I studied rest three games of Grunfeld Structures from Chess Structures a Grandmaster Guide 

(1) Holden Hernandez vs George Meier 2013

In this game white entered in grunfeld str. in wrong time and in the end black got control of the important c-file and later he won,

(2) M. Emilian Parligras vs Ian Nepomniachtchi 2011

In this game, I learnt the important attacking plan e5. White is both good and bad too. Good because e5 shuts down the bishop on g7 but bad because it gives up the d5 square and if black survives the attack then white will have to handle a long term endgame pressure. But in this game white got e5 and due to lack of black's Light squared bishop white won easily, 

(3) Yrri Vovk vs Andrei Volokitin 2012

In this game black first of all neutralized the white's e5 attack and in the end he won with an amazing breakthrough. Also this game showed importance of having outside passed pawns.

Now with this the chapter on Grunfeld Structure is over and I am trying to find new sources to learn this structure in depth.
