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.
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 :)

Now I have an hr daily for chess studies even after work. So, for this purpose I chose to start a book which will teach me how to think properly because when I think I face vision issues in some positions and also blindspot. I head of ( Pump up your rating ) this book from many other players so I thought to give it a try. But the starting of this book is making me super confused about improvement in chess.
This para is bottom confused me. If absorbing knowledge is not matter that how can one improve in chess? I am going to read this book completely no matter how many month it will take but I also need some suggestions about improvement. Before this book I already finished ( The complete chess workout by Richard Palisher) this book. I can't afford coaching so I prefer self study programme. I also do not have good internet so I can't watch free lessons on this web or on youtube.
many ambitious players is that they focus on knowledge.
A good chess player is not someone with well-defined knowledge, but rather one with great
I would like to make the Berlin Defense my main response to 1.e4, as I particularly find the Berlin Endgame very interesting to play with Black. However, I'm not sure how Black can play for a win in the variation 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O Nxe4 5.Re1, as it seems that here the structures become very symmetrical, and black has some issues with coordination, making it hard for black to generate winning chances. Is it still possible to outplay white from these quiet lines, or should I only use the Berlin against strong opponents and something else against lower rated opponents?

I like to make small videos of my games and post them in Facebook when I win. Just like a memory for my self or something like that. The nice thing is Facebook shows me the posts I made from a year ago on the same day. This is really cool because I see my old games. I been watching how I used to play compared to the games I have today and I can see a huge improvement. Thank You ChessMood!
Great video series on the Rossolimo against 4. Bc6. What do you recommend if white plays 4. 0-0 instead?
IM Christof Sielecki in his book Keep it simple 1.e4 recommended 4. 0-0 and after 4...Bg7 he recommends 5. Re1.
I have been getting this variation over the board much more frequently than 4. Bc6 against 1900+ players and I am not sure what to do with black.
Recently I started a book Pump up your chess. I am studying it alone because I do not have any real life good friends who live in my own city
When I switched to the game one of the book I applied the same idea which Avetik Grigoryan sir suggested in his amazing video.
I found it amazing but the problem is I can see the plans but I have issues in follow ups of those plans .
I am posting the game link in he bottom which I tried to analise alone. I faced many planning issues,
Of possible Kindly give me a suitable advice for improvement. Or suggest me a book which I can read alone. I frankly liked the topics on this book. But your all suggestions matters to me.
Thanks in advance.
