Does anyone analyze their wins? I'm starting to analyze my loses in order to try and learn from my mistakes but I'm wondering if analyzing wins might also help. If I could pinpoint the winning move (or strategy or combination or tactic) and maybe reinforce the concept in my mind.
What do you think?
It certainly cannot hurt, but it's a question of the biggest bang for your buck (time). An hour to review what you already know and do well, or an hour to isolate your mistakes and improve upon them? Looking at the wins is more fun, but if the goal is to train for improvement, then I would look first and foremost at the losses.
Makes a lot of sense. Thanks.
Best of luck with improvement, and happy holidays!
I think studying your wins is a good idea. Fact is you make strong and weak moves in both wins and losses. Unless you really believe that you played a game flawlessly, it would be a good idea to go over your wins.
It helps to analyze all your games, but you will learn alot more from your losses than your wins.
Depends on the game, not the result. Pick a game for its complexity, the number of positions you were unsure about, or the number of errors in the game by both sides. Whether it was a win or loss certainly seems peripheral to me.
IMO it's important to strive to be objective about your results. Why did the winner win (whoever it was). That is to say, you can play a good game and lose, and a crappy game and win. As we all know.
