Hello ChessMood Family!
Now I'm adding model games in each section of our course, so you have a better understanding of the positions. Some of them, I'll also add in the book, that I'm writing now (later about that.)
Why did I write this post? :)
If you played nice and instructive games with our ChessMood openings - please post here.
I would be happy to add them as well.
The first course, where I'm going to add model games, gonna be the Scotch game. If you want to make a research in your games, start from the Scotch :)
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.
Um I am following latest events in midnight nowadays. I was watching live commentary of singufiled cup 2019. Both Anand and Magnus missed retreating moves. How is it possible?
I meant they are top players in the world but still why it's hard for them to find a backward piece move?
Yes from the very beginning we learnt to move pieces forward but is there is no solution of this issue about finding backward moves in tactical or strategical positions?
Any book which covers puzzles or strategies based on backward moves?
Can anyone suggest a line for white against Benko Gambit?
I know plans from black side but confused which line is fine for white to hold.
I just do not feel comterble with g3 lines bec black's put so much pressure and I cant handle it well.
I like the e4 Bxf1 line now.
I need suggestions as white because I am preparing d4 too.
Hey everyone, I made a discord server that is "unofficial" but where we can talk and send ideas, share links for webinars etc without having to be on facebook. This is completely optional and just for fun. Please don't feel obligated to use, and I am sure the ChessMood family will still be using the FB chat.
I also made ChessMood an admin on discord so they can control it as they see fit. Here is the link for anyone interested!
Hi Coach and Chessmood family,
Are there any good ways to practice defending a castled king? I often blunder in situations when my castled King is under heavy pressure, i.e. I move the pawns forward, or move defending pieces on the wrong squares etc. If there are any good tips do let me know. Thanks guys.

In the messenger list Chats were it has your profile picture... you can click that and it will take you to a menu page... go to notifications and sounds and there you can put limits on the messenger notifications. I set mine until morning but if you want you can even put them on vibrate or shut them completely off.
I am searching someone strong to play the black side of the benko gambit in correspondance game. I play white and we are both allowed computer and databases. I play on lichess my handle is Jonnyturgi feel free to challenge me. I do that to test my prep vs the benko gambit and i think the game could be really interesting. Tx all have a great day!
Tried doing the daily Puzzle today where the solution required promoting a pawn to a Knight instead of a Queen, but the system kept auto-promoting to a Queen and would not give me the option to choose another piece. Is this a bug in the system or am I doing something wrong?
Also, below the Puzzles no longer show which side is to move as it did before, so I just assume it is always White to play. Then there is the issue with the Mood Coin total resetting, could it be that all these glitches are related in some way.
Has anyone else been experiencing similar technical difficulties?
