Right Mood - Right Move
Truely I am impressed by how Kasparov played this game. I do not understand opening well it's like mixture of King's indian and Benko but I learnt the following things:
1. Power of bishop pair in an open position.
2. Compensation of two sacrificed pawns for activity.
3. Piece mobility and especially white's all pieces were in queenside so king was unsafe and black used this to create some attacking ideas.
4. The b5 new benko mixture was new for me. I also never saw this Bg5 move in king's indian because I only saw two games in chessmood so I do not know what is best line against Bg5 .
During the analysis of game, author said it's not a good line for black
Still a lot I miss but it's fun to learn something drop by drop I can fill the glass.
Let me know what you think guys?
Any suggestions if I miss some concepts.
Coach kindly made a good article about what is chess?
The reason behind this request is as you know my grop @chesslectures. Most people are beginners and they think chess is a game of tricks, traps, luck. I tried my best to write an article about chess is a game based on strategy and there I wrote study plan fom beginners to 1600 level but I think if you make an article whenever u will find time in chessmood community then it will be like a boom for all beginners and they will listen your advice and give more value to it.
Even though I do study wiith WCM and I studied with my coach and I have a lot experience in how beginners and intermediate players make mistakes in their study but still rating matters. I am 1465, mmost people ignore my article even if I guide them right. They think hey man, you are 1465 , go learn first then teach. I think they are half right and half wrong. Half right is yes I need to learn a lot still but half wrong because they do not know my experience in the field of research. I done a lot analysis in past about how to improve in chess but issue is I done research late. It's because in past we had speed of 10kb/s.
Just hoping to help misguided beginners. I hope one day you will find time for article too.
Thanks for your support.
I am able to do well in positional moves or quiet moves but I am nnot able to calculate branches of variations. I find candidates moves well. During I analise games I find candidates but can't calculate precisely. I am analising games from two books .
I need a study partner for game analysis daily
we wiill use hangouts or skype for study.
We will study an hr daily and it will help each other's improvement in chess.
I hope for some serious reply.
I am 1465 rated and chess.com 2000. I need someone who is a player of my strength or even stronger will be better.

sir my opponent was a gm and he played 11...a6 with the idea of b5 and the engine is showing better for black.How should i continue after a6.
sir my another opponent was also gm he played 9...Na5 for that also how should i continue.
The following move-order poses some tricky problems if we also intend to use the recommended Grand-Prix Attack setup against the Modern Defence with 2...g6. I couldn't find a good way around this move-order so White may have to come up with an additional attacking scheme vs The Modern.
What say you ChessMood Team, all suggestions/ideas/antidotes are very welcome:
Coach, after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 ed 4. Nd4 Nf6 5. Nc6 bc6 6. e5 Nd5 7. c4 Bb4+
Is it better to block with Bd2 and let them exchange our DSB or block with Nd2 and then after Nf4 we play a3 and then Nf3 or something? I couldn't find it in the course, but I think playing Bd2 seems better. What is your opinion?
Tomorrow, at the same time, instead of stream, we'll have a simul game with GM Ter-Sahakyan Samvel.
You just need to be there 5 minutes before the event and in chat write your nickname in lichess.
See you tomorrow!
Hi guys! I am looking for some good partners to improve my chess skills in online games on lichess.org and chess.com . My ratings vary from time controls, but they are round 1650. My lichess profile: giorgoskehagias509 and my chess.com profile: Giorgos_Kechagias. You can also contact me in my gmail: [email protected] Finally, I am located in GMT+2 zone Greece. I can play in any time controls but I prefer 5+3, 8+1, and 10+0, in order to stay focused. See you soon guys ;)
Coach, maybe I'm missing it in the videos but I am trying to figure out how best to continue when the opening goes 1.d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 b5 4. Nf3... does black leave the tension and play d6/g6/Bg7 as usual and just try to transpose? I was looking on the lichess database and it seems like white scores very well in this move order, and I've ran into it several times now.
