Can someone analyze my recent games for me?

You learn and grow by doing your own analysis.  Don't worry about how good or bad it is.  This gives others a chance to know what your thought process is.

I mean use the automated chess.com analysis thingy. I cant because i dont have premium

I don't think you need analysis. Your recent games were decided by hanging pieces and pawns, usually of the 'they can just take it' variety. You don't need someone to tell you specifically where you gave stuff away, you can see that for yourself in a lot of cases when your opponent just took your pieces. What you need is to start or keep working on tactics and after you play a game, you should go over it and only look at moves where you could have just taken a pawn or piece or where they just took a pawn or piece. You should then look how you could have prevented the loss or think about how you could've seen the fact you could have taken. After doing that on your own, you can use an engine to point out other moves, where you again only look for engine recommendations where you win/lose a pawn/piece in 1 or 2 moves. The rest you can just discard for now. Just getting great at tactics will make you much, much stronger.

Without premium you still get one game analysis per day. That should suffice.
Only analyse a game that you lost. Play 15|10: that lasts about 1 hour, then analyse if you lost.

The automated analysis that chess.com provides is worthless. Worse than worthless, actually.

Also, Rau4ever has told the truth. You have to stop blundering pieces. Nothing else matters.

You need to do your own analysis first.

I'll be happy to analyze one of your games on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP5SPSG_sWSYPjqJYMNwL_Q

 

Pick one of your games and I'll analyze it free of charge!

There were several baffling mistakes in this game, but the biggest one was resigning in the end. That is just criminal. Never resign, especially not against a 300-rated player.

Mistake's from like move 4 onwards, pretty much.

ye that was a bad game.

Some of mymore recent games are better.

Idk what i was on that game.

Allright can someone look over my previous games and tell me besides obvious blunders anything else i'm doing wrong?

This might sound offensive and that is not my intention at all. It is really out of curiosity: why don’t you follow Rau4ever’s advise? It is really the best advise there is. It is easy and fun to do and it will win you tons of games in the next weeks. Why not?

What's with 5.Be6 ?

@AtaChess68 nah your fine. I am actually doing that. Im looking to see what went wrong after bad games. I used to be good at tactics but for some reason either i've gotten more careless or my opponents much better. Im going to switch up my openings a bit and try the center game opening. 

 


It seems like a good opening because it allows you to develop your pieces very quickly. Even if it violates bringing your queen out too early. If that ends up being a problem ill switch out of it. Also whenever i see some wierd opening I try to just develop normally. If that doesnt work and I loose right after I loose i go and see the best engine move against that bad opening. Some other things.

 

1. Sometimes i get super anxious in a game of chess and make mistakes because of it. I've noticed when i'm not anxious and am on a winning streak crushing everyone that legit makes me do better.

2. Sometimes There are pieces that the opponent hangs but I dont take them because i think i see somthing better or dont notice. For the former the only way at my level to know if its work it to take material or not would be engine which is not allowed.

3. Overanalyzing everything at this level. This might contribute. Keep in mind the above game was an exceptionally bad game.

main takeaway, should have memorized the classical variation of the Caro-Kann better. I know that theory inst necessary at my level but its still nice to have in my admittedly under-formed opinion. I didn't leave many pieces hanging(i hanged 1 piece towards the end but was able to quickly recapture by forking the bishop that captured my piece and the opponent's king. And there were a few moves I missed that would have been better. For example on move 12 I should have played c3 instead of f5. Probably others that i overlooked. Also i should have developed my pieces earlier. But my botched memorization of the classical variation made that harder to do. I'm used to playing the exchange instead of the classical.

If I played every game like this I would be at least 500-800 most likely.

If anyone has anything to contribute please let me know.

My advise would be to keep it as simple as possible.

Your own analysis: Just check every game if you lost pieces and pawns just by giving them away. And check if you took all free pieces and pawns from your opponent. That’s it.

Do this for a few weeks and you train your brain for hanging pieces. That wins games. A lot. Really a lot.

Honestly? I'd say 15|10 is a minimum time control for you... if you play some of those games and honestly state your thoughts and send them to me, I'll analyze by myself/with the computer happy.png

You should see increases 100s of points if you follow the checklist on @IMKeto's profile before every move!
