  • The aim is to play chess against the computer with increasing levels of difficulty and with a limited number of hints that are given by a chess tutor.
  • Also included are thousands of training positions such as different types of endgames, tactical combinations and chess problems (mate in 2,3,4 and more).

I personally use this freeware software. It helps me a lot. I improved my rating after playing games with Lucas.

  • The computer uses different chess programs (so-called chess engines) of various strength. The user starts playing against the weakest engine at first. Initially the engine plays with limited strength but as the user wins more games the engine will be given more calculation time and its strength will improve. Eventually the engine will reach its maximum level of strength and if the user continues to win he will be passed to the next stronger engine and so forth. And even if you consider yourself being close to winning the next chess world championship, I can promise you that the included chess engines won’t run out of steam that quickly. The strongest engines included in this program (such as Rybka and Stockfish) will give a professional top ten world ranking chess player a real run for his money.
  • To overcome a level you must win against the engine twice, once with the white pieces and once with the black pieces. With every won game your personal point score increases. The higher the level the more points you receive for a won game. The engines are arranged in groups. Each group contains engines of similar strength. The basic rule for engines is, you have to collect plenty of points against lower rated engines until to can play the stronger engines. In detail this means each group of engines has a minimum required point score. If you want to play against an engine of a particular group your personal point score must have reached at least the group’s minimum point score.

Hmmm… The tournament has just finished and I scored 6.5/10. I lost my last round game from a dead draw position in time pressure and ultimately lost.

Well, In the penultimate round I was paired with a IM. I was not having any problem when paired against him. I drew that game from a clearly winning position for me.

This is the position where I took draw by perpetual checks. Because, I sacrificed my rook for a good position.

I thought why to take risk by moving any other piece and maybe I would lose. I was having  a lot of respect for my opponent I think…

Anyway highly instructive psychological lesson for me.

When I came home and I started analyzing the game where I missed 29. Nxd6, which was a clear advantage for white nearly +4 evaluation.

Well, It’s a lesson for me.

 

In the ongoing 4th Chennai Open GM Chess Tournament. Me & my friends had a nice chat with GM Henrik Danielsen. He was discussing about his training, about his students, and gave his website www.trainlikeagrandmaster.com. In his training method, he doesn’t particularly guide a student but makes a video and sends to his students mail box (Not for free, Of Course).

GM Danielsen pays special attention to the mistakes, categorizing them into inaccuracies, mistakes, and blunders.

I am playing in the tournament and hope to increase some elo points. I will post some of my interesting games, if any.

Black to play. I sacrificed an exchange earlier and after this position I was having some doubts. I hoped I can draw at the least, to save my face.

The engine played at 20 secs per move. It is a very good sparring partner.

I defeated all the previous levels and this made me to sacrifice the exchange with confidence. 

I want all of you to analyze this position. Like how Black can take advantage / initiative.

Below is the game I played. I won the game 🙂

He is by his own admission a chess genius, weaned on computers, a supreme expert on openings, and the hardest worker amongst the top players. Actually, when you have gone through this remarkable ChessPro interview with Magnus Carlsen – which you must – you will recognize that all of the fairly plausible claims in our initial statement are false – in fact the opposite is true.

This happened to me in a game with a 2000+ rated player. I was a piece up with 1 pawn up. I became over-confident. I was playing the game nearly 3 hrs and became tired. I a showing you the game and position which I misplayed but managed to win the game…

In this position I played Rg7. After Rg7 you may notice that black king has no square to move. My opponent played Bf3+ and I was under a shock for nearly about a minute. But managed to win it.

See the game fully and enjoy !!!

White has many variations in the Closed Sicilian. He can play a late f4 with Grand Prix-like play, fianchetto the bishop on g3 to get into a Reti opening structure or even play a closed Guioco Piano, etc. You must look at all possible options and make sure you find decent moves corresponding to your chosen move order.

 

To help you (and myself!)I have discussed about the Closed Sicilian from White’s point of view. I have explained the key ideas and major plans for white in the videos. Have a look at the following videos and give your feedback.

Usually though, apart from the Gand Prix which can be quite violent if black allows White to launch a King side attack, white doesn’t achieve much unless he opens the center.
