Hello ChessMood Family! Hello Champions!
I've good news for you!
As I promised earlier, soon we are going to upload many new courses related to the middlegame and endgame.
The new one - "Happy Pieces" is uploaded.
This gonna be one of the most important courses you've ever watched about chess.
Enjoy the first part. The rest is coming!
Dear friends, dear PRO Members, my champions!
This gonna be an interactive webinar with our PRO team.
You can send me your questions related to our openings in advance.
You can ask me also about positions, that you feel uncomfortable with.
I'm going to answer all of them even if it takes hours.
See you soon!
I have two questions about this line:
(1). What should White do if Black chose 4. ... Ne4 rather than Nfd7
(2) What should White do if Black chose an early ...f6 (or even ...f5, which I have faced in some other variations), say, instead of 7. ...Qb6, so 7. ...f6?
Can White gain an advantage anywhere here?
Maestro, in this section in the video course, in your second illustrative game where Black does a better version (i.e. 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 cxd5 4. Bd3 Nc6 5. c3 Nf6 6. Bf4 e6, not allowing an early f4!), your game continued 7. Nf3 Bd6 8. Bxd6 Qxd6 9. Qe2 0-0, 10. Nbd2 At this point, instead of 10…a6, can Black actually play 10….Nd7 with the idea of (1) preventing Ne5 and (2) play a quick ...e5 himself? What would you recommend against this line of play?
Dear maestro Avetik,
In the line 1.e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Bd3 dxe4 4. Bxe4 Nf6 5. Bf3 Nbd7 6. Ne2 e5 7. 0-0 e4 8. Ng3 exf3 9. Re1+ Be7 10. Nf5 Ng8 11. Rxe7+ Nxe7 12. Nxg7+ Kf8 13. Bh6 Kg8 14. Qxf3 Nf8 you suggest 15. Nh5 saying that Black's best is to go back with ...Nd7. However, my engine wants to play, instead of Nh5, the move Qf6 and shows that after Nh5 black can actually defend against Nf6mate with 15. ...Nf5!? evaluating the position as equal.
I would much appreciate it if you could comment on this line of play. Cheers!
1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 d6 3.Bc4 was mentioned in the philidor video course by GM Grigoryan (https://chessmood.com/course/philidor-defense/episode/1168 time 0:49s) but i couldn't find the section where a full analysis was given . All the analysis looks to be for 3.d4 followed by 4.Nge2. I would like to play the 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 d6 3.Bc4 line, can anyone help point me to the correct section? i've seen its in the pirc course but that's different as g6 is played.
Thank you chess friends
Guys I finished Accelerated Dragon and I am doing well and playing a lot games with this opening too so I won't mess up move orders but I do want to include one more opening in my repo. The reason is to learn something new in chess. So what opening do you guys recommend to learn as black against e4 after accelerated dragon. I am not good in tactics and calculation yet so as coach told me don't go for Najdorf. So I trust him. I do not mean to focus in depth in new opening. I just wanna know ideas and that's it and my main opening will be accelerated dragon always.
How do you guys train calculation. I am right now follow the plans of studying classics. I watch them and learn concepts from them but in complicated games it's tough to calculate.
Any advice how to start training calculation?
I have 20 mins daily for calculation training and an hr for watching classics.
After may I will have 3 hr for training.
2nd question; How do u guys worked on pattern recognition skills? Do you first see the pattern then u solve examples or u solve pattern by urself then more examples?
Yesterday I subscribed to Chessmood for my younger son. Can you please suggest some good tools to practice chess openings where he can create the repertoire after learning a opening and the tool gives some feedback about where all he went wrong and which all lines he missed upon.
Hello, I am a 2000 fide rated player and am struggling in the aspects of calculation. I have trouble finding resources from both sides. I also have trouble calculating long variations in my head, since the position slowly gets more vague, and unclear in my head. I would greatly appreciate any tips for these problems, as well as chess books to strengthen these topics.
Thanks for any help
