Mark Shelton has created a chess tutorial site, with about 60 lessons and videos. Check it out!
It appears that you need a flash player and Chessbase Reader 2013, both of which are free! I couldn’t verify the site as my iMac couldn’t run the videos or install the reader, but it looks promising!
Check it out! Drew Serres has started a chess training service for anyone from beginner to near Master! His Google+ webpage is here!
Good luck Drew!
There is a really interesting review of IM Justin Sarkar and his recent match against IM Adam Hunt on the NY Times. Check it out.
Sarkar played the Caro-Kann Defense and Hunt responded with the Panov-Botvinnik Attack.
Here is a great video on a very fascinating line of the Nizmo, by FM like-a-hurricane on Chess.Com. Watch and be amazed!
This is the method I have used to
- slow my game done,
- take the time to analyze the board,
- make more correct moves.
Assuming you are not on a short time situation
- determine your opponents possible moves (go over every piece)
- determine your possible moves (go over every piece)
- deduce why your opponent made his last move and his probably next move
- decide your best counter.
- Remember, a counter can be defensive or offensive. Offensive is usually better.
- Think position, board control and powerful placements.
- When losing, go on offensive barrage.
If you do have time problems,
- Half skip 1 & 2. Only look at pieces directly affected.
- Stay with your strategy unless foiled by opponent’s move.
- Think aggression! Defense takes too long to play.
Hope this is helpful to those budding chess players.
