#Right Mood - Right Move
My first game of March 2020, played on 2nd March. I got great position in opening then mess up in middlegame but still I won.
This kinds of games teach me a lot like
1. Never become excited during you play.
2. Be focused.
3. Do not care too much about your mistakes during you play. Do not blame yourself during you play.
4. After the game then check your mistakes and learn from them,
I will do my best for the next games.
Anti-Sicilian is very aggressive, especially against less prepare opponent.
I can say finally I played well. I allowed bad pawn formations because I need his bishop pair and pressure on f7 and a lot
What you think of this game?
Bishop pair classic? Joking.
When you know ChessMood openings, some games end very quickly! The game was over before I was out of my opening prep! 13 moves, and a checkmate vs the Scandinavian!
I do forgot a lot lines. I only remember key plans and ideas and that's how I play. I need to work on my opening skills but still good game by you!
I never crushed any 1800+ player in rapid on chess.com in my entire life. But now because of chessmood I am not only winning against 1800+ players but also crushing them positionally or sometimes with attacking skills. Here in the bottom I played as black. I was scared to face an almost 1900 player but I kept thinking of Bobby Fischer which I normally do whenever i feel scared of tensed. He is like an inspiration for me. So opening was fine for me,Now in the bottom some of my thoughts about the moves so it will be easier for mentors to understand my weaknesses because I am follow 50% study plan on classics. Due to time issues I only watch classics and makes training base on them and I play.
..14 Rxb2 I thought a lot because in the end of line I knew i will have to give up my lovely bishop but I do not saw any compensation from his side.
...17 I think c5 was an important move. Fixing his weaknesses on c4 and later I can use them by Ba6 Nb6 and if allowed Rb4-Qa4. Another thing is important to notice that no matter how white will place his pieces, he will only get three defenders of light squares and I can get four attackers. But later I allowed some counterplay I think but it's a different story.
..19 Qb6 a simple trick, if he takes Qxb6 Nxb6 and he can't play a4-a5 bec of Ba6 Bxc4,
20. I do not like his Qa3. I was thinking of Qb3 follow by Rab1 and fight for the file.
..20 I think here Bb7 was a bit passive by me allowing Ba5 but I am not super sure.
..21 I played Qc6 to gain a useful tempo against by using his weak pawns,
24. Rab1 is too late I think here because now I will get his bishop pair advantage and it give me relief and I can use the a pawn as long term target and I will also play b6- b5 to trade off my bad pawn for his bad one too but in the resulting position I will get passed pawn.
..28 He is just one tempo behind and I have b5 hehehe.
I knew after Rb5 position is so tough for him to hold. Principle of two weaknesses I tried to use. Targeting the pawn on e4 and a2 and good thing for me is that both pawns are on light squares hehe.
..30 Qa4 eyeing on d1 and e4 square
..31 I did not saw any concrete way to win. I saw Rb1+ Kf2 then what. Here is my problem . Sometimes tough to win a winning position but he resigned.
If anyone fully read this one then kindly share my mistakes so I will learn from them . Especially in case of Rxb2. Was it sound and about c5 and about Bb7 in the end allowing Ba5 from his side.
Any suggestion will be boom for my game!
My again GP win. This time it's classical game. Missed a lot tactics but rn I do not expect my game as tactically sound. Because no time to study like I am supposed to do. In future I will. But still cool and aggressive game and variations will be amazing if u analise it.
I shouldnt have allowed my opponent to exchange queens, but then he probably shouldnt have allowed me to isolate his bishop either! Once his bishop was out of play, the rest was easy :)
master of isolating opponent's pieces hehehe.
played another 15/10.
1. Power of bishop pair.
2. Central control.
3. Passive black pieces.
Black missed pawn levers against the structure and he played e5 in wrong time.
Thanks chessmood for bishop pair concepts.
The more I played this Queen trade line the more I found that people face so much problems on c7 square hehehe.
Not with my real account but training account.
In the end chessmood bishops crushed him like a melon.
My win on Lichess against the English Opening. Waiting for GMs to tackle this opening for us. In this game I opted to approach the English as if I were playing against the Sicilian.
I am so happy that I know now a lot classical games and patterns. Especially my strength is to play typcial pawn levers. Here is a great example of my first game ever against a player of 2400 chess.com. I was tired that time but still played in chessmood tournament. Lost 3 in a row then I paired with this man and I thought let's try KID now and guess what? He entered into the line which I studied in 2 classical games shown by chessmood middlegame course. I remembered typical pawn maneuver and ideas especially g4 without h5 after knight on c3 moved. I tried to play fast because he was strong and I got losing position but due to pressure he missed simple Bg3 nd I gave me winning position and later I lost on time.
Happy thing for me was that due to kasparov game I played this line well in blitz.
I do not know I am gonna win any prize or not but I am satisfied with my every single game. I only remember ideas for now of every chessmood openings but I need to work on move orders and soon I am gonna work on them. But even a player of 2000 is not able to handle ideas which I learnt here. So I think once i will study openings in depth + classical games then I think in just few months I can achieve 2400 on chess.com
Here is my today's best game and full of mistakes but final touch was great from my side.
Here is the game I played recently in Inter Bank Chess Championship 2020. My opponent's rating was 1600 Fide an mine was 1900 Fide and the time control is 30+10.
I chose the game due to two themes,
1. Domination of Knight over Bishop
2. Isolating a piece(Like Winter-Capablanca :))
Hope you all like the game
is that super cool I must also try as a starter I really loved the scotch game and the classical games
About this game:
-Powerful attack against White king.
-Round 5 of the national youth under 14. Board 1-FM De Silva LMST vs Ahangama Senuka Aswin. De Silva was the best player of this event,starting rank 1,former youth champion(last year), a FM. Aswin (me)1494 rated player well known for his agressive style of play.
De Silva and I each of us well.At the moment every other players were on my side. They were so desperate to beat De Silva because they were sick of him being 1st every year.
Mindset before the game:
-De Silva-Feeling the pressure.Very negative at the moment,try to make the position static.
-Aswin-nothing to lose(underdog) ,no pressure,try to make the position dynamic.
Before the game I taught to myself "this is a game two humans.There's no such thing called ratings or titles. My plan is to stab his heart(king) in the game, play the moves quickly, make him feel the pressure.
