    Thankyou for your honest evaluation, I feel your pain! I throw away countless games from the same things. Either from thinking it's an open goal when the goalie is standing right there, or being so annoyed with earlier mistakes that I want to force the position in a direction it doesn't want to go...

    I guess we have to suspend emotions for a while, but it's so unnatural!

    Thank you for this fabulous video.  At video 11:41 -- when Qxd4 vs. c3xd4 -- you said you had spent some time evaluating this move.  In retrospect, what impact did this move have, if any, on the outcome of the game?  If this is a dumb question, I apologize.  I'm a beginner.  Thank you.

    Great video. I like the idea of really focusing and using your time thinking specially on critical positions, which are tactical and concrete ones by nature. I just played an OTB tourney and one lesson I learned was just that one above.

    I remember seeing this game live with David commentating live (the whole tourney). He saw the free pawn and said something like "easy win" and started to look other games. And few moves later he looked at it and said "wtf" or something :) but my point is, that after watching this, I can put this and that situation together and see what happened, and why. And it's educational.

    At your level of play, there certainly is a lot of preparation before, and much thought during, the game. Thanks for taking the time to show beginners like me how chess masters approach the game. Incredible stuff.

    Danny,

     

    Thank You Very Much for recommending additional ways to improve calculation skills.  I think, after watching both several times, that your videos on how to analyze your own chess games are exceptionally valuable and informative.  

    There is little actually provided to humble amateurs such as myself, other than the constant admonition to analyze your own games.  Your efforts have provided a roadmap and I can't wait for the next time you make a third video on this subject.  All the best to you!

    The only problem I have with this video series, Danny, is that there are not enough of them. I thought this one was excellent and appreciated the length very much. Longer generally means a slower pace, which enhances comprehension considerably. Rock on...!

    @receipt1 -- Well, playing lots of games and solving lots of tactics with NO computer engine analysis will definitely improve your calculation.

    You need to try and have your study habits accurately reflect "over the board" situations. Kind of like I explained here:

    Good luck!

    Danny,

     

    What practice methods can an older person use to improve their ability to calculate concretely?  Is it all about studying tactics books and playing the chess.com tacticstrainer?  Are there other methods you recommend?

     

    Thank You for any response you might care to give.

    I remember watching this game and i was sooo sad. I still think Erik should be encouraging or even making you and David play more chess and get your GM titles just to make the video author list look that much stronger. Still I know you will make it and I just look forward to more Daniel Rensch games in the future. Good analysis thanks for the lesson and the hard work you put into chess.com.
