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.

Good game Jay! 
In this pawn sturctures, play e5 as soon as you can. It's a general rule, play e5 when his pawn is on e6. 
I would play e5 on the 7th move even.

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.

My friend, you could just take ab5 after his Qc2. And if e4, then simply Ba6! Having a great position. As his Q is on c2, not defending the d5, and he can't play e5. 
Abhi yadav

Abhi yadav 1 month ago

I think all players know that I forgot lines in scotch. I remember ideas but forgot lines. Especially this game. I did not wanted to play opposite coloured bishop line which Avetik GM Grigoryan sir taught in main course so I thought to play Qc2!! Novelty. I played it and then again I forgot lines. I was feeling like a melon but I st on my board and thought and thought and after he misplayed a bit I gained advantage of pawn structure and later I won.
Key points in this game:
  1. 1) Total rook domination in endgame. I forgot but I did saw a game on control of files. May be it's from (“Grandmaster Chess Strategy: What Amateurs Can Learn from Ulf Andersson’s Positional Masterpieces” by Jurgen Kaufeld and Guido Kern) and I saw how white played so well when he got control of important c-file. Here in my game I not only controlled e file but also c file and made his all pieces passive. This make me feel a bit proud.
  2. 2) I am learning Karpovian approach. So slow but keep position solid and do not rush. In my game may be strong players will find an easy win but due to time pressure I tried to play solid and safe.
  3. 3) The liquidation the end was also good and thematic for me. I was thinking not to allow any counter play so I entered in endgame with winning pawn endgame.
  4. 4) I also exploited so well his bad bishop.
  5. 5) A bit ok positional play!

Conclusion:
Scotch Scotch Scotch. I must study more and more scotch !!!!!

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.

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

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.
