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.
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 :)
Here you can find sparring partners.
You can write, for example,
"Hey guys, my name is Bob, I'm from the USA, my rating is 2000 I'm looking for a sparring partner."
Or even more specific like "I just finished the Caro-Kann course and I'm looking someone to play a friendly sparring games".
Hopefully, you'll find good friends too.
Here is a game about space advantage and how problematic are the knights, when one side has space disadvantage.
The game is played between 2 world champions!
Keep the growth and stay safe.
Hi, amazing analysis also in the French course!
I have a question: How can we play in variation in wich Black keeps the tension in the centre, for example:
1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Bd3 dxe4 4.Bxe4 Nf6 5.Bf3 c5 6.Ne2 Be7 followed by ...0-0, ...Nbc6, ...Qc7, ...Rd8 keeping the tension in the centre or
5...Nbd7 6.Ne2 Bd6 that I met in an online game.

I am writing because I am beginning to study the Maroczy bind and today in an OTB game I had the following opening (I was black) 1.c4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.Nf3 g7(I think that Nf6 should be better) and then the opponent played 4.e3 followed by 5.d4. What should be the plan against this? Can someone point me in the right direction? Or even better, the right video? I honestly could not find it... It should be somewhere though... Thanks in advance and let's keep the cogro mood!
Hi, I learned the Caro-Kann course, really interesting ideas! In particular I liked a lot the solution against the Dreev line.
If someone wants we could practice together on Chess.com! Let me know if you want :)
I have also a question: against 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 4.Bd3 Nc6 5.c3 g6 6.Nf3 Nh6 or 6...Bg7 and the ...Nh6 how we can react?
I was watching some middlegame lessons and found this position. Only one game was played after c5 Bxb2so do you guys ever studied this position?
I played kan in past and same line but never saw c5. In the game Topalov's opponent took on b2 and then took on a1 and later lost.
Nice dark square play .
I like Bc5 more after Bd3
e4 c5 Nf3 e6 d4 cx Nxd4 e6 Bd3 Bc5 Nb3 Be7 Qg4 g6 Qe2 Nf6 Bh6 lines. My past experience says it's playable position but I do not studied modern theory
I ended in this position in one of my recent games. My opponent resigned. He quit on my move and honestly I don’t know what I would have done if he hadn’t. Any suggestions?
