My first and last rapid of this month

Bottom I am sharing game with notes. If anyone find any mistakes in my game then please let me know. I am hoping to improve my skills to the next level so all time I am worried if I make any single mistakes. I care for good game so I am working on my skills. Yes, in one day no one can become champ but in one day we will find right path to study well for future and become Champ.

I did not saw setup against g6 so I thought if mentor is not covering this line then there must be punishment.

Concepts I applied:

1. Development with tempo and bothering his queen.

2.  On 10th move when he made the move c6 I thought of the game of Dubov against Mamedyarov so I was not able to stop my hands and I made the move d5!. I hope this is accurate bec I followed the principle of open the game when we have two bishops and second his king is in the center.

3. Move 12th I played the Qa4+ because I was an alapin player or I can say below 2000 chess.com alapin expert. My score in positional alapin was always great so I knew whenever black loses the Light square bishop then the a4-e8 diagonal becomes super weak. Now after Qa4+ he will lose the right to castle or just Nbd7.

4. Move 13th, concept playing for initiative so I do not worry about pawns and due to @chessmood's benko gambit my fear of pawns is disappeared and also from Anti- Sicilian I learnt the power of initiative.

5. Move 14th, even if he try to grab two rooks then in the end he will lose the a8 rook. 

6. Move 17th, Nc7 forces him to give up the rook for the knight.

7. Move 18th, Rxb7 not only grabs the pawn on b7 but also creates a mating net  so he thought he can defend this threat with Ngf6 but he missed my move g4!!! and good bye to dancing queen.

Note: It's my first rapid game of this month so I shared my inside thoughts. Due to opening prep I had no time to play more rapid in last month. Bec lappy work make me super tired.


Coach, let me know if I missed something or you saw something better so I can work on it. I did not posted it for compliments but I do want to work on skills so I need to focus on improving my skills.

My funniest Chess Dream!!!
My funniest dream!!!!
As I wrote several times that I am now in the condition to prepare for events due to lock down so all time chess events and thoughts about it moves in my mind.
Yesterday, I went to bed with again chess thoughts and moves in my mind. I saw a funny dream and I remember something about the position that I was playing black and I was super better. I had nice hanging pawn formation and active pieces and on the other hand white had no active pieces. At some point I was winning too. Then a strange thing I saw. It was me who was playing white. This make me feel funny during the dream too. I felt like I was black and now how can I became white player. But ok it was just a dream. Another thing I saw was a chess book in my hand during I was playing event. In the end I had pawn on g7 and I took 20 mins and then played pawn promotion because I was trying to find moves for my sides and then I realized that oh! is it a pawn on g7? Then I realized oh! yes it's a pawn so I can promoted it and I said g8=Q. Then he said ok find a new queen and I went to another board and took one queen After some moves he resigned. After resignation he said to me that may I call Arbiter. I said yes but I felt scared too because the book was in my hand. I thought he may claim that I used the book to win against him. But he had different thoughts in my mind. He told me that he will tell Arbiter that we pre-decided the result of the game and I was like when we did? I did not even know you. After that my mom asked me to wake up and I was happy that I won one rated game in my dream hehehe with many funny things.
Summery of my funny dream:
Don't use a chess book during you play hehehe.
Do not change the pieces like ok I will play white now or I will play black now hehehe.

My mom thinks I am super crazy because I think of chess all time. Even in past, when I had no time to study I was thinking of how to find time for study. I am glad now I have 8 more months to study chess and in this mean time I can improve!!!

What you think guys, why I see this kind of dreams? Is it something wrong in me?
