Hey fellow Pro Members!
Over the next few months, I am going to be working deeper on our ChessMood openings and filling in my PGN files, so I can remember all the lines better.
I am looking for anyone who wants to study with me, play these openings together, and discuss the ideas of the opening as we fill in the PGN files. We will work on 1 opening section per day so we don't confuse ourselves. The goal is to know all of our openings inside and out in the next 90 days! Everyone is welcome! Even our GMs, if they have time and want to pop in to give us words of wisdom!
I will be starting each morning at 9 am PST and working till 11 am PST on the ChessMood openings. I will be starting this tomorrow morning, since it is short notice for today, and will be working on this every day at the same time. I know the time wont work for everyone all the time, but I hope some of you will be able to make it once in a while.
If you would like to join me, please download the free voice chat app Discord and join my channel - https://discord.gg/fhZ2SP9 - so we can talk to each other while we work. It is ok if your English isn't the best, no one here will judge you, but it is important to be able to communicate.
I will be starting with the white openings, and this week will be the Scotch. Please take the time to watch the first section before we start if you can. I look forward to seeing you all over the coming weeks and watching all of us grow in our knowledge!
Feel free to ask any questions about this study group below. I hope you all join me!
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!
I have been a monthly Pro-Member since March this year and have been billed for 4 Months (March, April, May and June) thus far. I am considering changing my Subscription Option to Bi-Annually and have two queries:
1. This is now June, if I immediately change my subscription option to the six month one, will I be billed straight away or six months from the date the subscription type was changed.
2. I am currently a satisfied customer, but If for some reason I needed to cancel my subscription, how do I do it. I only ask because I didn't find the answer when I searched the FAQ on the website.
Very good free training database chess software
http://scid.sourceforge.net/ you can also get pgn files from
http://theweekinchess.com/twic and also
To start your own personal databases. I bought chess king and got Houdini 5 pro and a lot of games I exported from chess kings database for cheap. Just one word of caution the engine works in scid but if you upgrade to chessbase they won’t let you use engine from any place that’s not part of their software so when I upgraded to chessbase I had to keep scid to use my Houdini 5Pro.
Two days ago, I watched an Armageddon game between Carlsen and Anand... We all know the importance of bishop pair, and the game was 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Bb4 3.Nd5 Be7 Can you explain this concept of giving this dark square bishop so early in a relatively open game without damaging pawn structure ?
Dear ChessMood Family, dear friends!
After we learned the most important factors playing in positions queen vs. two rooks, now I am going to offer you an interesting position.
White to move.
Is it a draw, won or lost?
