Hello chess.com fans!

You may know by now that I have been actively uploading puzzles and advertising my FREE simuls (September 30, October 7, October 14) for all of you!

 

I hope that all of you who have participated have liked my simuls so far. I found the first simul was an absolute success as I took on 10 tough opponents of chess.com. Of the 10 games, I lost 2! 

For those of you who do not know, after each simul I personally choose one of the 10 simul games and dissect it move by move on analysis board for all chess.com members! This is a free service and I will continue to do this for you guys! I typically spend anywhere from 30 minutes to over 1 hour analyzing with you guys! 

You may ask: How do you structure your analysis?

Answer: I go over all phases of the game and analyze them one-by-one. Lots of people I find, spend too much time memorizing openings and do not look at the overall ideas in the given game. This is where I come in! I try to engage as many members of the audience as possible. I will voluntarily choose audience members to answer questions that I ask that have something to do with the game in general.

Just to give you an idea, I will ask questions about:

1. Pawn structure

2. Tactics in the position

3. The overall plan for both sides
4. Why one move is preferred over another

5. How you would evaluate this position
6. What move to choose and why

7. Calculating a variation in a position

8. How to determine candidate moves 


After October 14, there will be a change of "pace".

 

*In order to participate in my simuls after October 14 (October 21, 28, etc.) specific fees will apply. For the price of a starbucks coffee ($5 per person)  you will be able to participate in my simul. This does not come with analysis. Regardless, everyone can join in on the fun after the simul is finished and watch me analyze one game of my choice with the audience for FREE!!

To watch me analyze a game after the simul, simply right-click my username and click "follow" (Anybody is free to watch and ask questions during my analysis)
