Rookie Chess

Sep 14, 2011, 8:39 PM |

I am a rookie-ish chess player striving to improve. Below is a game I played online recently. It is full of blunders (most likely more that I have not noticed) and probably other poor moves. Looking past all of that, I feel that it shows my potential to be a good player! Smile My soccer coach always says "Its not how you start, its how you finish" and I prove this point with a very nice checkmate at the end (by my standards of course). Any experienced players who would like to grace my blog with some advice please do! It would be most appricated! I know it is easy to say "study openings", "improve your calculation" or "pretty much work on every part of your game" but I am looking for some more pointed advice. I learn well when given examples so using the game below as a point of reference for me would be awesome! Thanks in advance!
Much Love,
