Thanks, GM Dejan! I like the way you not only show the best way to play a selected game, but in the process, the best way to play chess period. You help us to develop a chess way of thinking and reacting. I really apprectiate the hard work you do for us.
Thanks Dejan! It would've been better if I had actually kept the advantage and not blown it with the moves towards the end.
But as long as it teaches things to other people in what to do and what not to do, that's what matters.
Thanks again Dejan!
Thank you fellas, Mark, that was a great game!
Excellent analysis Dejan.
Great analysis, GM Bojkov!
I wholeheartedly agree with Dejan in his assessment of the game; it was definitely very entertaining and very interesting :) It seemed to me there were so many different options with moves that could've been made along the way. What great analysis, Dejan. Thank you for that!
I can tell you Mark was MORE than shocked when he came across this! I wish you (especially you, Danny!) could've seen his reaction. It was priceless :) I think it was a great choice for a game to analyze (and I'm not speaking from a biased position! lol), and I'm glad Mark posted it to begin with :)
This was good. We need more members games analyzed. This was kind of a condensed version of what Elliot Liu does on his tv show. Bravo for GM Bojkov!
While watching this analysis with Donna, I stopped the video a few times to tell her about what I was thinking and why I didn't develop the a8 rook like Dejan said.
As the video went on, I said things like "I would never do that move now" or "I wanted that move but instead I did that." Looking back there's no way certain moves would've been played on my end. Losing this game affected me for a long while and if I could go back, knowing what I know now?
Dejan's analysis was spot on and it was great to see and hear his analysis on a game that really bummed me out after losing it.
Thanks Dejan and Danny! You made my weekend!
I thought Dejan did a great job here, and I thought the game was extremely interesting...
Got ya, Mark !!!
OMG!!! I had no idea they picked one of my games. I just looked and it was almost a year ago when Danny asked for Member Analysis games. Here is the link to the original thread. Danny, I am going to get you for this if you were the one who picked this game. (LOL! )
For the record everyone, I was playing Fritz 12 in Friend Mode only three days after I got the program, which does give a handicap depending on your strength. Thank God I have gotten significantly better since then. Go easy on me, guys!
OMG I am shocked! I wish I knew about this
i found someone's name called fritz 12 i think its him
Why should I belittle anyone? We are all chess players after all, human, and we make mistakes. the only one that I am very keen belittleing is myself
Folllowing jrolder's thoughts, could we have a confirmation by Chessmarksthespot that Fritz12 was really playing white (without a large handicap)?
Nice analysis. Good that you didn't belittle the players for making silly mistakes. We're all learning and for most of us it's just a fun hobby.

We're back with more Member Analysis! This weekend's video will not disappoint! GM Bojkov reviews a game between one of our most active members, ChessMarkstheSpot, and his computer opponent. On the black side of a Nimzo-Indian, Mark finds himself with a huge lead in development and a nearly decisive initiative. Unfortunately, when he doesn't realize just how dangerous his threats are, the game slips away...
