Hello champions and welcome to the ChessMood team!
We all are from different countries, different ages, have different professions... But one thing bounds us - the passion for chess.
Champions, we'll grow together and keep a warm relationship in our team.
Please tell a bit about yourself in this post.
On the website it says:
29$ is only for our first 100 PRO members.Then the price will jump up to 99$.
But seeing the number of views on the PRO Member posts the numbers vastly exceed 100, the price still seems $29, and it seems like a contradiction.
Am I missing something?
By the way, I am not complaining in any way. Chessmood has been tremendously useful to me.
Dear coach Avetik,
in your video you covered 7.Bb3, d5, e5 … - but how best to continue if Black goes for 7…b5, O-O, Nbd7? Still going for 8.Qe1/9.Qh4 and GP Attack or maybe inserting 8.a3 (to cover against 8…Nc5 and prophylactic against a possible 8…a5) and then the standard attack with Qe1/Qh4 etc.?
We know that many of our PRO Members have never played against a GM, and we decided to host a bonus event for you.
On the 1st of October, we'll have a simul game.
GM Avetik will try to play on 20 boards against you and stream it.
NOTE: Anyone who wins me, he'll be out from ChessMood team!
Haha, joking :)
Also, we've added a Webinar on the topic "Prophylaxis in chess" on the 17th of September.
The details of the events you can find here: https://chessmood.com/events
See you soon!
P.S We'll do our best to speed up your growth and we hope you'll also do all you can to accomplish your goals faster.
9...Be6 in the Petroff
Hello I was playing today and someone played 9...Be6 against our Petroff repertoire. I did not know exactly why it was a bad move and I castled anyway, then Bxa2 and I got a better position trapping the bishop. I was wondering why it is Be6 not played more, how should we proceed here Ne4, Ng5, 0-0-0 and if the bishop captures it will get trapped. Everything makes sense to me but what would you suggest?
Maestro Avetik, I just played a 10 0 game on lichess. The opening went 1.e4 c5 2. Nc3 e6 3. f4 a6 4.g3 Nc6 5. Bg2 Qc7 6. Nf3 and here my opponent played ...d6. In fact, he never played ...d5 which is the move covered in the course. So, I was on my own and decided to play later h3, g4 and f5 attacking on the kingside (my opponent was kind enough to castle there jaja). I won the game very smoothly, the opponent didn't play well, and the attack just went like a knife through butter (at room temperature)...
Please share any insights with regard to any such variation as the one I describe, i.e. without an early ...d5, or no ...d5 at all.
In Section 3, the title of 19. is 4...e5, but seeing the initial position of the video shouldn't it be 5...e5?
(1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.ed cd 4.Bd3 Nc6 5.c3 e5)
Seems like an obvious error, but I'm presuming no one brought this up earlier, otherwise it would be fixed, right?
We've added a full new course - Queen vs Pawns.
In this course, you'll learn the most important theoretical positions and the ideas in the Queen vs Pawn/s endgames.
If you think you know everything here, we have a challenge for you. Go to the last section of the course.
Cause even we (our Grandmasters team) thought we know all the important positions, while we found many new and strange ideas and positions, during collecting the material of the course.
So, just go section by section, and in the end, you'll have a very good understanding of positions Queens vs Pawns.
Enjoy it and keep the COGRO! (Constant Growth)
Hi everyone - I just joined this week and am loving it so far. My only problem is there’s so much information! Wanted to see what tips people have for learning all the repotoires. Without the chessable-style repetition, how is everyone absorbing all the lines Avetik shows? Good luck improving!
Hopefully you saw my course in openings Sicilian Sidelines by Black and I would like to get some feedback from you. Now I am working on Najdorf by black, and I will take into a consideration your wishes. Please be honest, as it will be very useful for me and you at the same time) Thanks in advance!
Today I have played my first scotch game over the board. It was 15 min 10s increments practice game with a 2100 rating player. Game started with 1. E4 e5 2.nf3 nc6 3. D4 ed4 4. Nd4 Bc5 5. Nb3 Bb6 6. Nc3 Nf6 7. Qe2 0-0 8. Bg5 Nd4 9. Qd2 Nb3 10. ab3 h6 11. Be3, here my opponent played c6 after that I didn't played well. What should my plan after 11. ..c6?
