Good game and win in English Symmetrical opening. How is the competition winner decided (maybe there is a post about it)? I doubt I will be posting any of my games, but it maybe possible at this time of year (famed for miracles happening in this month).

Nice one Jay (now where have I seen this opening before..it is vaguely familar! LOL). Gets over 90% accuracy on chess.com analysis with only x1 inaccuracy retry where 6.0-0 is recommended as best). This inspires me to actually do this opening course here. Thanks for sharing this, good luck in the competition and well played!

Here is a daily game played on Chess.com.  I've had a lot of difficulty getting the K-side attack as white correct in the Sicilian. Finally, I think I figured it out.

I really struggled a lot in openings in past. I learnt only alapin in depth from white side but now bec of chessmood I am crushing 2000 on chess.com and improving not only in openings but also middlegames strategy.

Here are my two quick knockouts.

1. He fell into the novelty Qe1! and made blunder Bd6??

2,  French knockout. I wanted him to play Nxf3 gxf3! line but he did not so I played my best and won so quickly.

Thanks. I played many good  games but these two were amazing to me bec they fell into my prep.

Abhi, before, have you ever win a game without doing a single move during the game yourself? :) 
I am glad you learned the Caro Kann too :) 
Abhi yadav

Abhi yadav 3 weeks ago

I do prepare openings, and I do know the response to some moves, but I have never played a whole game where I knew every single move without thinking, In case of opening prep I focus on mainly some elements such as pawn formations, pawn breaks, critical endgame positions if the lines are forcing, basic ideas of openings, some squares strategy( like if I am KID player I will focus on dark square strategy play). That's all I do.
