I've started playing through some of the "Guess The Moves" games over at Chessgames.com (another site I enjoy). I think this is a fantastic way to study and is like playing a real game of chess.
Does anyone else use this site? Or, I've thought about doing this with GM/IM games from my database or game collection books. I won't get a score, but the benefits should be the same. I can take notes while "playing" through the games to help the learning process.
What do you guys think? Is trying to guess correct moves of GM/IM games a good study plan?
is ok, maybe better is to study your own games.
Yeah, I go over my games too. Although, lately I've been studying a lot. Tactics, videos, books and going over master games. Sometimes, I think I like studying better :)
Studying strong master games (say from the few decades before WWII) while also studying a good middlegame book would make a lot of sense.
Serious appication like that, and lots of tactics work, would bring the average player up a class or two pretty easily I imagine.
