I liked it as well. Usually everything Bryan does is good.
However... quite a long lesson. I don't suppose one can leave it, and then resume it later? If not, then perhaps a warning at the beginning, or use shorter games.
Yes, you can!
I tried a little, but honestly, after one plays (as Black) 6.Be3, Bg7 7.f3 and now 7…Bd7/0-0 and 7…a6 (which only I chose because Magnus used to do that around then) are “Incorrect” (no explanation whatsoever), and after 8.Qd2,O-O 9. Bc4,Bd7 10. O-O-O, the move 10..Rc8 is again “Incorrect”, with zero explanation, let’s just say I am not too motivated to keep doing this. Let alone that I have to refresh the page every time I have to play Black, but I assume that´s a problem with my browser or something.
You must be using the mobile app. On the regular windows 7/Chrome browser version there is a big green bar that says "free move, click next" for the first dozen or so questions. So that explains why there is "no explanation whatsoever". If you click next, there is a nice explanation as to why Carlsen chose that move. Only the middle part of the game requires you to make a choice; the opening and endgame are taken care of for you.
It's very similar to IM Igor Khmelnitsky's courses. By the way, mine is glitched, the only option I see is the "Back" button, so I cannot continue with the exercise.
I like it lot, not hard to keep up with at all! Keep them coming, great idea
This is a very good format. I also agree completely with the comments and suggestions by JFK - Ramsey above.
Excellent format, Danny! I like the alternate move choices of which I chose 3 or 4 which also give credit. You have carefully approached and thought through this experience. Very good teaching tool! I am looking forward to going through some more games. See you at the Anatole in BIG D. Dinner's on me.
I love it, and hope to see more!
I got one today which was a one-mover - more suited to tactics trainer! But I still liked it, cos I got 100%
PS also my first correct 2000 rated lesson, with a great code - SEX020!
Thanks for the feedback everyone! Super appreciated!
All of us are waiting for more
Chessmentor is really cool, maybe a bit too generous with rating points especially when we screw up and still get rewareded. Also I think that in for instance Silmans suberb strategy courses that sometimes when I manage to find something that looks really strong and I play it, I am not rewarded because some GM played another move. I won't get anything for my answer because it has not been looked at by Mr Silman - Couldn't you extend the analysis of your problems with the help of Computers. It might not work I guess because the computer may see something that obvious to the computer 20 plies ahead...I don't know. In this case my move was actually quite a bit stronger than Botviniks according to Stockfish both instatly and a minute in to analysis, but of course it may have something to do with things I don't understand - so it could be more atrributed to luck and not materialize if I don't follow the computer exact line..
Keep up the good work guys!!
Very good, we want more! My suggestion: Tal's games!
This format is excellent! It helps us in developing in chess very much!
I really liked this course. :)
