When Kasparov in an interview (skip to 1:05) says sometimes you only look 2-3 moves ahead I remember this:
"Psychological research has found that excellent chess players neither calculate markedly deeper than amateurs, nor do they calculate a larger number of moves. However, they make the more relevant calculations."http://digitaledition.qwinc.com/display_article.php?id=477727
I got married ,now I am thinking ten moves ahead
your wife must be a good coach then. I'm interesting in her training methods :)
if you can look clearly for tactical oppurtunities and spatial advantages by looking ahead 3 moves consistently most people i deal with only look ahead one move or maybe 2
Well what do you expect when you play with the elderly and 8 yr olds.
yes moved that made sence
In the endgame you have to think more moves ahead or with small, simple variations because of so many open squares. Here I sac'd a bishop 10 moves ahead because I calculated that it was winning to do so.
i wish you dad dinished this brilliancy to yhe checkmate because i sense the fireworks vut my limited mind cnat see them PLEASE SHOW US MORE! SHOW US THE KILLER TACTICS!
My point was just to look deeper when there are a lot of open squares, which usually occurs in the endgame.
i dont mean to be contrarian Borris but where exactly is the mobe where black should resign
I am attacking his rook and threatening to queen, his king is cutoff from defense. What do you think White should play?
3-moves is nowhere near enough. Possibly need to plan for 5 or 6.
3 moves is to easy. It's actually crucial if you want to win trades and maybe even more than 3 moves I would I can think 7-9 moves ahead idk but anyone else but three is kinda needed
Is it rrrRRRrrreally that hard to see 3 moves ahead fur most people? I'm a weak novice and I cam calculate 3 moves ahead and maybe even further no problem!
You got lucky! Obvious your opponent did not know End Game theory here!
It's not that I got "lucky". I had to calculate whether using the bishop as decoy by 1...cxb3 was correct. It was correct, as 2. Rxd2 loses - if 2. cxb3. then I'm still winning.
After 2. Rxd2, white was a tempo late to win my pawn on b2, and if I didn't use 8...Rd8+ to block his king out, I could have simply used waiting moves with my own pawns, and put him into zugzwang, when I would still win the rook but after several more moves.
