Hi I just won a simul game against an IM with 2400+ rating but I'm not proud of it since he just lost in time 

I'm just waiting if there will be an opening lines of white against alekhine no rush :)

Last weekend local OTB tourney u1600 joint winner

Last weekend was a special chess time for me as I played in my local chess OTB tournament (u1600 section) & scored 4/5 points with 2 draws & 3 wins to finish as joint winner (3 winners in all on 4/5).

The first OTB chess tournament I have ever won (although my son won the junior prize in this competition many years ago-probably 15 years ago). It was last held in 2019 when it was in a large venue in Town, when GM Eric Hansen visited & I enjoyed meeting & chatting with him. However, due to CoVid & finances, this year it was at my local chess club premises (I do not play there any longer, but often run into club members in online games) & there were restricted numbers due to CoVid & the smaller venue & I was on the reserve list until midday Friday when I got in due to a cancellation. The main Open section was won by IM Alan Merry, a local player who was with my son as a junior in the junior chess club here (& I may add my son, Chris, never lost to Alan & I have the game notation when he beat Alan to win the Junior chess club annual tournament (30/06/2006)!).

In terms of game detail I played 1.e4 as White and as Black faced down 1.e4  twice with 1.e4 e5 with one game an Italian opening & the other a Ruy Lopez Berlin defence (both wins).  I know 1.e4 e5 is not a ChessMood opening course sadly, but it is my personal favourite chess opening of all time. The other win for me was as White with the Italian opening & I had one draw as White in the Alekhine defence and another draw as White in the Italian opening. So now I plan to study the ChessMood Alekhine course closely (in depth) now & maybe next year I can bust out the the Scotch opening a la ChessMood, as it is a pretty decent opening (not as good as the Italian or Ruy Lopez clearly, but I do like both the Scotch opening & a drop of Scotch whisky now & again!). If I get the ChessMood openings down, maybe next year I can enter the Major section & do well with these! Onwards & upwards.....(btw thanks GM Avetik for Facebook love to my FB post on this!) ;-)

Openings PGN Homework

Hi guys!

So I have been working on something for a while now, and it's not even remotely complete. However, I thought it was a good idea to use the PGN's as a homework assignment as suggested IN the PGN's. I have been doing this in a private lichess study. I have done enough work that I feel I can enlist some people who are hard working to help me complete it. I think I will accept maybe three or four people. The people that assist me with this can clone the study when it is done and even separate them into smaller studies if it makes it easier to digest. The point of this is to have a way for us to study together and get to know each other while assisting in getting us PGN's that can help us better understand the material presented.

I only want serious people who will help me edit this consistently at least weekly, recommended every other day, and preferably daily. I have done a lot of work so far, I completed the Alekhine one today because I noticed the Alekhine one didn't have a PGN. I also will see if I can do another one I find that may not have a PGN. This is full pro analysis so pro members only.

I may accept more than 3-4 if they really want in and convince me they will work on it often. I believe I am about 30% complete with the entire opening repertoire. A lot of it is entering moves and then double checking validity within completed moves by learning along with the videos. If you would like to you can contact me here. Tell me your lichess handle and expected activity. Please no trolling by coming in and messing up the PGN standard. I am merely putting in the suggested continuations with no analysis. I believe in the idea of this homework and will take it seriously. So trolling is immediate expelling. If you are inactive for more than a week I reserve the right to dismiss you. If no one accepts this, then it is like the chicken who baked a cake. I will eat it all.:-) I hope we work together on this soon.

Momentum article

An interesting article. GM J Aagard seems to state momentum is the need to play dynamically?

The scientific definition & formula for momentum is p(momentum) = m(mass) x v (velocity)...kgs/s2

(NB I am no physicist, although I have a degree in a biological science subject & am certainly no GM!)

What a game analysis! Seems to me that White screwed up a few times! I can certainly relate to the end scenario where from 29.Kd2 the side to move (aka Black) has the win. Is this game a good example of chess momentum? Does Aagard's definition of chess momentum correlate in any way with the scientific definition?

Even in my games, I have had many wins when I had the checkmate move, before my opponent could make the checkmate move, which might indicate I had some momentum. How much does this have to do with dynamic play or more simply, always keeping the extra move advantage as White in some games, or grabbing that tempo as Black in cases such as this game!

Playing dynamically, usually does mean maximising chess tempo in play which is playing with initiative. Speaking of tempo & initiative, I was chatting on the Twitch stream of a 1650 rated player, who stated tempo and initiative are the same?! Now, I do not hold that view and I think it is important to have clear definitions and understanding of concepts, both scientific & chess related.

Still, the bottom line, as there are so many ways to play the great game of chess, is to be true to yourself in your play! No limits..COGRO..Right Mood Right Move...happy momentous play all! ;-)
