My game analyses; a 4 step approach

My game analyses; a 4 step approach

Nov 1, 2013, 4:31 PM 10

Okay, so I did one analysis like this, and it was incredibly helpful for my thought process.  I will outline the main levels of analysis that I hope to do in my primary post, and post games with my analysis as responses to the blog.

1. My thoughts throughout the game: considerations I had, and what I thought my opponent's plans or main ideas were.

2. My own post-game analysis:  where I saw mistakes in my play and my opponents' play--my thoughts regarding positions and ideas I may not have had during the game.

3. (optional) a look through game explorer: see what positions were reached in master games and where I likely was making mistakes in opening theory (as well as, possibly, a stab at positional reasoning).

4. Computer analysis: where the computer analysis deviates from my previous analyses; after retrospectively analyzing the games, this is helpful for identifying weaknesses in my thinking, or oversights I might be having.
If you're reading this, please feel free to post your own games here with a similar analysis style; I'd love to see them.
