    At around the 16min mark where you are looking at Nxpawn and c3, why not Bxb8 followed by d7? 

    Edit: I see a few other people found this. Nevermind.

    pulpopaz, both are good to analyze. any mistakes of yours are worth thinking about. :-)

    bbjjoorrnn, i might make more videos like this in the future, but they'd probably be on my youtube channel.

    Is it good to take time and analyze a blunder, or rather a positional inaccuracy?

    Very helpful video! Both systematic and clear. Just adopted the mistake journal idea. Are there going to be any more videos in this series for 1400+ players?

    i would not suggest using computer analysis, i think it's bad for you.

    how to plan and how to analyze yourself are two separate disciplines. but there are examples which are overlaps: for example, analyzing a position where you were trying to decide on a plan will both improve your planning and your understanding of any shortcomings in your own planning thought-process.

    5 star instruction, I think this is better than any video I have seen on how to plan, which is ironic when you consider the idea is teach you how to analyse a position. Are they both the same I wonder.

    Haven't finished watching this, but so far so good.  David's typical thoughtful teaching style: not too many words, and very well chosen!

    you can learn something by analyzing any chess moves or position, including your opponents moves. but you are not going to learn about what your mistakes are from analyzing anyone else's moves.

    This was really helpfull! Thanks!

    Also, would it help if we also looked at our opponents' mistakes and saw some better moves for them?

    Nice stuff there! I liked the lesson learned in regard to opening lines. I will be incorperating analyzing my own games into my study.

    yeah, if you want to improve, and just playing you are staying at a steady level... it may be time to do some of the "dirty work" of studying that few ppl have the stomach for :-P

    Definitely appreciate the video.....I have hit a roadblock in my progress....and it may be attributed to my lack of knowledge when analyzing my own games....Excellent video!!!! Have to slow down my volume of games and do the dirty work and study.....

    A bit more applicable for my level than your first one, but I think the next one will benefit me the most, a good lesson overall though!
