Post Mortem of An Amateur's Game: Loss with Black II

May 2, 2015, 4:57 AM |

So, you navigate through a slightly worrying opening phase, go through an unclear middle game and start defining a plan for how the end game could look like. And then... blunder. Some mistakes seems eternal.

(This blog is a way to take down my notes after some games. I blog infrequently. It is for my own benefit. If anyone finds it interesting, that is a bonus!)

I have tried to analyse the game without the help of a computer, which of course is a risky thing to do. However, apart from pointing out tactical mistakes and thereby patterns I need to recognize, I think relying heavily on computer analysis just makes me lazy when analysing. I need to understand why and where I went wrong in order to improve, not just be told by a machine that my choice was 0.008 worse than the best line...
