Have an upcoming game against player who always plays 1.Nf3, any 2. b4. I have my own ideas, of course, but am curious what others think. One idea I have is to play 1. Nf3, c5 taking away a free 2. b4. Yes, 2.b4 can still be played, but I think challenging a confirmed Polish in such a manner might be disconcerting for him.
Hello ChessMood family,
a 2000 rated player coming to my Chess club to play against me tomorrow. I need some opening preparation against Reti Opening, English Opening and the Pirc Defense for black. Any help would be great. I think he is too strong for me, but I want to give him as much headache as possible. Hope you guys can help. Thanks!!!!

Dear Friends, dear Pro Members!
In this video course, I explain the main ideas of fighting against Rossolimo and show the lines why Caruana stopped playing Rossolimo during the World Championship match.
The material was made by me and GM Melkumyan, just because he is an active player, I recorded the videos.
Hello ChessMood family,
Can you help me with my thinking system? I find I lose games because I reacted too quickly after my opponent's move and lose the game because of it. How can I maintain the discipline throughout the entire match? I feel rushed when playing blitz but I feel much more at home with 90 min classical format. How does somebody keep the same level of analysis,thought process and ability to anticipate dangers early. Any help would be great. Thank you.

I had no business winning this game. It was just bad on my part...very bad... But we are not quitters here! Keep applying pressure and they run low on time trying to figure out what you are doing, even if you are doing nothing! #SLP!!
My oppent blundered his piece in the Evan's gambit accepted where after my advancement in the middle he out me in check with his dark square bishop. I block wih my bishop. He moves pawn to d4. I take his bishop. He takes with his knight. I take my queen out him in check and fork his knight. How do I win after this
