That was nice to see how you handled a symmetrical english type position. I run in to this a lot and normally play d6 instead of d5, but obviously d5 makes more sense. Nice work!

Taking ideas from the stream ( maybe not executed perfectly, but still executed!) I entomb his light squared bishop, then attack on the other side of the board!

Fun game in the Benko! Lots of presure even before my opponent was nice enough to hand me his queen!

I controlled this one almost all the way through! I did miss a hanging queen late in the game, but I was winning by so much it didnt alter the outcome!

I hope some of my games are interesting.. Thanks chessmood for his wonderful opening repo. I only saw one time all lessons and I remember some ideas and because of that I am still winning games. I am playing less and learning more now a days. Especially watching classics so I will learn more pattern and concepts.

Hello everyone,

New PRO member in the family! Edo from Tokyo, nice to meet you all!

I just played a tournament practice game with the standard time used in Japan, with 45 min + 15 sec. It is a Benko Gambit game, where the white opponent felt the pressure all the game and was unable to find good moves because of it. The funny thing is that I watched all the benko gambit files only once, but the instruction is so crystal clear that even after missing a couple of chances my opponent was still tied up. Time did the rest but, no more talking and I hope that you enjoy the game annotated by me for you all and feel the pressure of the right mood... (at least that is what I was thinking during the game).

Hello Champions! 
Thank you for all your games. 
It's cool to see how you grow. It's twice cool to see how you crush with ChessMood Openings. 

Among all these games, we must mention 2 strategical games of Jay Garrison, where he like master isolated opponent's pieces and won the games. Good job, Jay. Impressive. 

Abhi and Ed Tokyo played very cool games with ChessMood openings, especially Benko Gambits. 
Jeff's attack in Sicilian was cool too.

Derek's checkmating attack wish Sicilian was nice too.  

And we had another 3 impressive attacks! 
So the winners of February's Best Games:

The 3rd place goes to Hasmik Kochinyan for bringing opponent's king to h3 and checkmating there! 

The 2nd place goes to Justin Chen for destroying opponent's position with very agressive attack, starting with e4 sacrifice. 

The best game of February goes to Fahad Rahman! 0-0-0 and Bb5 moves were fantastic!  


Congratulations to the winners! 
Keep the growth and see you in the "Best Games of March." 

P.S The Prizes will be on your accounts tomorrow :)
