Today I spent some time analyzing my tough loss last week in the US Chess League. I started the game with a nice positional plus, but my opponent came out on top after a hard-fought game. This game should hold a lesson for me. On move 27, I should be a bit better, but the position is wild and hard to calculate. Instead of being guided by ideas and analyzing as best I can in an unclear situation, I go for the most forcing, violent moves and collapse.
Later tonight, I studied Johner-Nimzowitsch, Dresden 1926 from Kasparov's My Great Predecessors. I wrote down my thoughts while trying to guess Nimzo's moves, then went through Kasparov's analysis.
