#Right Mood - Right Move
I hope this isn't an April Fool's joke ;)
This is a perfect game on how to punish 1.e4 c5 2.f4 d5 3.e5 ending with a pretty nice mate
Utilizing another lesson from the streams! Undermine the c5 pawn with an e5 push!
your opponent didin't get any chance.
It's a matter of approaches. You did very well but do u considered to keep queens on the board or I am missing something. I though after Nf5 Qh3 then g4 ?
Your suggestions will be useful for my analysis but still good game.
Stop blunders man, you will rock hehehe. joking.
You did well
Abhi, I know I answered you in private chat, but I will answer here too, as others may have the same question.
I chose to trade queens because his knight was going to be out of play for a while ( I am practicing playing against my opponents pieces) and I felt his c-pawn would be a target for the rest of my pieces.
1. TV concept applied.
2. Passive play punishment applied.
Another Nd5 beginner victim.
Cpncepts diagonal and weak squares exposed.
It's a 10 min casual chess.
1. Power of two bishops.
2.Basic pawn sacrifice for long term queenside pressure.
3. Using his weak pawns in the endgame to make his king and rook super passive and in the end executed the nice idea "Rook Behind Passed Pawns"
Still trying to work on quality of my games
After long time I played a rapid game and crushed him not by calculation but just by knowing classics and intuition hehehehe.
Bad I need to work on calculation and I will but sometimes its fun that my intuition is improving too.
Playing this gamee as white. Used the account of my bestie when she was in vcall with me and we were playing against different people. Just for fun I posted.
After Qf6 I wanted to play Nc3 c6 d4 exd4 e5 and follow the Morphy's game but I forgot that and when we made the move d4 the game of morphy came in my mind.
It's cool game and we punished his bad opening play like Morphy did.
Lost the game but still so much fun game
yes man I am learning attacking skills.
Playing against weak f4 pawn. Bishop pair play. b1 was blunder by me in the end.
Knight pair mate, I wanted to sac a rook so so bad so I did.
Played against IQP
In the first game Rc1+ instead of b1? would win more easily.but the position arises after blunder was also totally winning for you. Great game!
yup see sometimes I miss stuffs like melon
Yup sir but sometimes I wanna do it for fun on online. To learn something from games too.
Played on a rapid game...tried a sac early in the game and confused my opponent..
After a long time played a closed game and total domination in queenside.
yup my intuition is improving and I am also working on my weakness which is calculation and tactical skills.
My new target is to solve 10 books on tactics and combinations before my tournament in January and remember all lines of all chessmood openings so I won't mess up during I play and I think I can do it. Yes, lines are super sharp so I will apply the concept Avetik sir did, Revision and revision and revision and one day I won't mess up move orders.
My Best Game Ever!
Against Engine Fritz 16(2256)
I missed a quick win with a5 and mess up my opening repo but still I like the ending of game where he mised that Rxc7 is checkmate hehehe.
when i played this game I felt down after this one. I messed up opening so that day i completed all basic scotch and started working on my tactics more and more.
Hi, i played a Benko recently and met this line(i suppose its not covered in the series). I won the game but will be very pleased if GM Avetik can take a look at the game and give some opinions regarding the opening. (i am the black player)
Played Bd3 against the french as taught by sir. He takes it casually and played h5 g5 on the kingside. I managed to block the position which I was dreaming of. Then I exchanged by bishops for his knight(exchanging the right piece). And then my knights dominated the position.HE was rated above 100 points then be but I was never in pressure. An easy game where two knights dominated two bishops in the endgame.
Tremendous space advantage

In the middle game, my opponent offered me a free pawn by mistake by I did not take it because I didn't want him to do something and exploited his weak squares. After the game, I realized that taking it was also good.
Very Nice Game ---No Chance!
Pawn Sacrifice For Piece Activity!
Good Queen Vs Bad Queen!
Never Grab pawns in the opening heheh. I messed up lines but I took advantage of my lead in development.
Yes sir, I am doing revision of sicilian now and after that i have to revise a lot.
I did it but must have done better!
I drew with an FM in a simul.I sacrificed a pawn in the middlegame. Well he ignored my idea and I got sufficient counterplay. I could have won, but played badly in the end due to time pressure.
Another game where I am play the Sicilian Dragon against an opponent whose mistakes I relied on. Tactics I used:
Discovered attack, double attack & isolating a piece.
I today applied the concept which I learnt from Karpov's game and Tal's game.
1. Played e5 on right time.
2. Rac1 to bother his development.
3. Improved all pieces with tempo
4. Took advantage of his hanging pieces.
All thanks to you coach
I love Accelerated Dragon, I played it for fun. I know, right now it's not best option for me so I am learning AD first then I will learn this complicated one too.
Before going to the game I wanna share the concepts I applied in this game:
1. Chessmood Opening Caro kann exchange.
2. g3 key move with the idea of placing pawn on f4 and bothering his pieces with Ne5 and playing with space
3. Cool control over e4 square so no time for Ne4 and f5 for my opponent
4. Kg2 as explained in the course. I did not remember all lines but I knew there was a plan of kingside attack with Kg2. And guess why this plan works because black done nothing in the queenside so I was free to do my work
5. g4 and attack
6. After g6 final blow starts
Here is a good example of having better development and a target. Beaten an FM in 21 moves!
1.Bishop pair advantage
2.Weak square exploitation.
3.Sacrifice pawn for development.
Following Avetik's advice for more aggressive e4 play, this game follows the idea of more aggressive play, long castle and kingside attack. I probably bungled the main lines but just starting to implement new ideas, from counterpuncher to more aggressive play.
Your pieces have dominated the entire board!Great game
