I know youtube but like i want it to be written. Like anyone know any good ones on chessgames.com. Whats the difference between Kibitzing and annotations? If i have annotations should i be taking my own notes on the games i watch as well, if i want the most learning out of each chessgames? i mean online not in books.
At chessbase.com there is always good analysis of top games but it is at a relatively high level. You could take a peek and see if it stikes your fancy.
I use Kibitzing on playchess.com when I when watch a tournament game live I run houdini 3 on the background , and it analyze the game every move and it give info about the game.
Chess.com also has articles written by masters with chess annotations.
The ones by Bryan Smith are really good.
Visit www.chesscafe.com. Among the annotators/ columnists are Yasser Seirawan and Mark Dvoretsky.
Difference beteween annotations and kibitzing?
If you like to read lots of kibitzing, plenty in www.chessgames.com Kibitzing seems like unwanted opinions. Annotations are comments by expert analyst.
