Please tell a bit about yourself in this post.
It Just My Suggestion ...Maybe It Can UseFull
I Was Thinking That We Should Have A Room/Area
Where Anybody Can Post Their Game And analyze Their Or Have Conversation On Some Interesting position or chess game!
i Got This Idea When I Was Saw Many People Upload Their Game In The "Best Game" Forum
And I Saw Most Interesting Game Ever I Saw..
If We Had Any Conversation In There Then The Forum Will More With Analyze Of Game Then of Any Game!
So This My Idea Hope It Can Be Useful!
Avetik Sir had recommended me to complete all white openings and not for black according to my study plan
I have completed scotch, petroff, anti Sicilian all parts, Scandinavian , caro kann and Czech pirc
But I find it little tough to memorize the lines and subtleties
What to do?
And any suggestion of books or any other study material? (My rating is 1628)
Thank you in advance
Can in future you guys write a blog on basic steps on visualizations skills?
It will be helpful for us to learn to think in proper way. We all can assess ok the position is plus minus we have initiative but task becomes tough when we need to calculate lines. Especially with a line full of branches from move 1. I know calculation is a broad subject but still any intro to this dark mystery will be helpful for those who have no mentors.
I'm a FIDE 1900 who loves chess. Joined PRO because of the exchange Caro Kann and the commented games courses. A few views and I've learned a lot of new concepts and ideas already.
Although, I don't intend to replace my whole repertoire with Chessmood's :)
The grandmasters running this Chessmood brand seem to be dedicated and honest, so let's take advantage of it!

There were at least two 1928 Rubinstein-Nimzowitsch games, both Nimzo-Indian Classical (E32). The commentary we have from coach seems to be on the one that took place in Berlin, not the one in Bad Kissingen.
Rubinstein-Nimzowitsch 1928, Berlin

As you all know Chessmood recommends the book called “Grandmaster Chess Strategy: What Amateurs Can Learn from Ulf Andersson’s Positional Masterpieces” by Jurgen Kaufeld and Guido Kern positional skills. How to work on this book well? I saw only two games and I got a position in which it's hard to find a plan for black. For example in first game after move 21 it was so so hard to see any good move for black and I guessed the maneuver well and in the second game I did found Rc4! a nice move to gain control over the c file. Then what, after that I saw all the ideas well for white but hard to see any ways to handle the position as Black.
The power of Ulf's games is that it's so hard to understand and when he reach him total domination then it's tough to find any move for his opponent.
I use a board but I start seeking ideas after move 10 and I try my best to see plus and minus but i cant calculate ahead like others can.
So, can I go through the book by placing pieces on board and go through every game and grasp concept or I need to analise it? The problem is I am in a situation in which I do not know what is the Art of Analysis so it's tough to work.
Any suggestions are welcome.
While checking the 12.Re1 line in the Benko course, in the minute 4:47, it is not recommended 19...Qxa1, because of the weakness of the black King after 20.Bxe5 and the threat of Rxg6 and mate.
However, checking with the engine (I do not like using engines for opening study but I like to know what they propose) Leela was proposing 19...Qxa1 because after 20.Bxe5, there is ...Rxf2+ 21.Kxf2 Rxa2+ (-+) and white has problems.
In the course, 19... exf4 was proposed. Which one do you thnok is better, 19... Qxa1 or 19...exf4?
