The Nerd Club - Your Games

Nov 15, 2015, 7:17 AM |
This is the blog for the CMT-group chess club. The idea is to teach a bunch of theoretical phycisists how to play chess.

Hi guys,
Thanks for the last lesson :) It may have seemed hard work for you to play those slow games and annotate the whole game, but for me it is a lot of fun (and some work) to look over the games and try to analyize them afterwards. I have put up the two games below for you to look at. Now, after the two games I have put my analysis of the games. I URGE YOU NOT TO LOOK AT MY ANALYSIS BEFORE YOU HAVE MADE SOME ANALYSIS OF YOUR GAME YOURSELF. This is like looking at the answer sheet of a physics problem before even trying to solve it yourself - not very instructive, though easy. So try first to go over the games yourself, finding maybe at least 3 places where you (or your opponent) went wrong and could have improved in some way. Only then look at my analysis to see if I felt the same way.
Without further ado:
And here is my analysis of the Asbjørn-Frederik game, in three parts.

My game with Jens:
So this was how the game ended. Here is a possible variation, just to show how dangerous the position could be if Black was not careful:
A hard fought game to be sure, Jens! But I was impressed with how much counterplay you got going, even being a minor piece down. Well played!
