I lost the match to GM Michael Roiz, but the last game and his last phrase compensate it ????
Below are the links of the game and the course about Grand Prix attack
Do you play Grand Prix attack or you're going to play? :)
So, anyone else ever get tired of losing so many games to blunders? I am really not sure how to stop myself, but I will be going along and playing ok for me, and then I wont check one position or thing and miss a simple tactic or make a wrong move. It is beyond frustrating to me at this point.
This is my latest game:
Hi, champs! Do you have any sugestions of how to play with black if white does not play d4 move in proposed English opening line? I mean after 1.c4 c5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nc3 Nc6 4.g3 and if the first player just plays it slowly and modestly like: Bg2 0-0 d3 and so on. I know this is not very ambitious line for white, but anyway, it would be quite interresting to hear a GM recipe here. Shall black play here d5 right away, or do you have any better advice? Or is the answe given in the courses already? Thank you in advance...

I was watching video on middlegames and found this funny but super strong novelty by Fabiano Caruana. So for those who love Catalan can work on this novelty to surprise their opponent. Be3 idea is to stop c5 that's all even GM Vazubian Akobian said and not more because he was also shocked and confused by this move. By using this novelty Fabi Crushed Anand. Vishy spent 5 mins after Be3 move and played Bd6 and 7 mins on move 9th .
Um, I have no words to describe my happiness. I am a guy who believed in hard work because my goals are always clear. Yes, life is not so simple so sometimes family priorities came between me and chess but i never left chess. I wanted to improve but all time I studied useless content created by amazing chess marketers and even by GMs but I never improved. In dec. 2019 coach GM_Avetik Grigoryan asked me to join his website too. As he met me in early 2019 when he had only fb group. So in the end I gave it a shot. I only studied courses one time in past and doing the revision second time and you know what my rating graph is going up and up and up.
In the bottom I am gonna share some screenshots of my chess.com and lichess.org profiles and you will see how much I improved all because of coach.
My Chess.com's Rating Analysis by me!

Bullet 1930 1995.
Daily Games 1700 1860
Lichess Ratings Analysis by me!
I am not a active lichess user but I started to play there too few months ago.
Blitz Rating: 2111
Bullet Rating: 1990
Rapid Rating: 1966.
Now after checking my ratings you may say, oh it's not so big improvement but what matters is I gained confidence due to lessons and streams and courses by chessmood that in future I will do more well in chess.
I lost my all hope in chess when I was studying and losing and losing and I never imagined myself to become a 2000 FIDE rated but after I found chessmood I lost most of the time only by my own mistakes but all courses gives me nice advantage and slowly my ratings are improving and I can feel it. Rating is just a number and soon they will come behind me too. Now I am so excited to play real life events and increase my elo because right now I am only 1465 but I know I play more well than 1465.
We hope you are enjoying the courses Pirc Defense and Czech Pirc.
We uploaded a new course - Modern Pirc.
