17 ( +1 | -1 ) ANALYZED GAMESHI to everyone.i want to improve my chess game and i want to find analyzed games at the net.pls tell me if u know sites where i can find analyzed games tnx in advance
29 ( +1 | -1 ) apart from finding sites with analyzed games i want to know if u think that seeing annotated games is the best way to improve your chess.as far as im concern is the best way to understand the advantages and the dis of every move.also is a a very good way to learn how to do plans
23 ( +1 | -1 ) Analyzed games are very instructive.I personally find Yasser Seirawans annotated games to be some of the best out there. He wrote a book called Winning Chess Brilliancies that has deeply annotated games in it. you can also find some of his annotation on the web. GL! :)
8 ( +1 | -1 ) do tulkos know any site at internet that has seirawans annotated games?
34 ( +1 | -1 ) tulkos"Winning Chess Brilliancies" by Seirawan is a very good book, I usually recommend it over "Logical Chess Move by Move" by Chernev. "Best Lessons of a Chess Coach" by Weeramantry is execellent. classics like "300 Chess Games" by sigbert Tarrasch and "Chess Praxis" by Nimzovitch are also good study material.
2 ( +1 | -1 ) is analyze the key of learning?
10 ( +1 | -1 ) Well, doing is the key of learning. You do the work, make your mistakes, and learn from them.
103 ( +1 | -1 ) Computer AnalysisYou can also analyze your games with your computer, but only AFTER you've done it yourself. Do your own analysis of your games and take your time. Do it two or three times. Then once you're pretty sure of yourself, let the computer chew on it for awhile. Then compare your notes to what the computer says, then play thru it again. I know it sounds like a lot of work. It is. There's no shortcuts. If you really wanna improve, you gotta put the time in. Another thing to remember, don't put TOO much in to online chess. The ratings really don't mean that much, but it IS nice, it IS fun, but it is NOT otb. Another thing to do is try and play your games with a board and pieces. Even online. I have about 20 or so games going on a few different servers and I play ALL of them on a board. I just set them up a lot. I find that staring at the screen in 2D to be very distracting and for some reason it kind of throws me off when I play otb. Sorry for being so longwinded. Hope this helps...
I agree with you. My only extra recommendation about this theme is a book, a very good one indeed, that I recived as a gift: "The Road to Chess Improvement" by GM Alex Yermolinsky alias "Yerminator".
I liked his sincerity when touching the theme of analyzing our own games (victories and defeats). So important it is for this seasoned GM to analyze, that he begins the book teaching how he analizes his games. He is very honest and severe with himself. I think that is the correct approach.
