Hello ChessMood Family!
Now I'm adding model games in each section of our course, so you have a better understanding of the positions. Some of them, I'll also add in the book, that I'm writing now (later about that.)
Why did I write this post? :)
If you played nice and instructive games with our ChessMood openings - please post here.
I would be happy to add them as well.
The first course, where I'm going to add model games, gonna be the Scotch game. If you want to make a research in your games, start from the Scotch :)
Here you can find sparring partners.
You can write, for example,
"Hey guys, my name is Bob, I'm from the USA, my rating is 2000 I'm looking for a sparring partner."
Or even more specific like "I just finished the Caro-Kann course and I'm looking someone to play a friendly sparring games".
Hopefully, you'll find good friends too.

I recently saw the Chess Mood Scotch course on sale at Chessworld.com (which makes it somewhat less exclusive as a Chess Mood course for members & Pro members). Are the other Chess Mood courses available elsewhere also and are there plans to release more? I would appreciate any reassurance Chess Mood can give, that membership here will not be devalued by any of these "wild" courses. Many thanks & best wishes

Under this post, we invite you to post your best games that you will play in February.
I sampled the Modern Maroczy course when chessmood unlocked its courses for a day a couple of weeks ago and loved what I saw. I'm considering becoming a PRO member in order to finish studying that course. However, to continue my membership, I'd like to see something for 1. d4 players and perhaps some other courses on endgames, middle game play (calculation), etc. Are such courses in the pipeline and if so, how much time would it take before we see them on the site?
Great work on the existing courses, like I said, I loved what I saw (Avetik is a great teacher!). I could actually remember what I saw in the video much later.
I just finished a 3 day team match at chess.com and won (after my opponent resigned) and my rating went from 1429 to 1615 (+186).The game opening was a Sicilian and playing Black I chose to play the Sicilian Hyperaccelerated Dragon, an opening that is pretty new to me and that I know next to nothing about! I played it as I know my coach plays Sicilian as Black but she actually plays her own version of Sicilian Accelerated Dragon and I believe there is quite a difference between both these two openings?
I too need also to learn the Chess Mood Accelerated Dragon opening, but I was happy to do so well with an opening I know virtually nothing about! Now I am keen to learn this Sicilian Hyperaccelerated Dragon, as imagine how good it could be if I actually knew some theory of it!?
Well, that was the biggest rating increase I think I have ever had (+186) from a single game win. Anyone done any better?
