I got my first brilliant move(the games I have reviewed only).

I'd suggest for people to not care about getting brilliants, or greats. the game review is very flawed in many ways. You could make a move which makes you lose 8 points of material and the review will list it as a mistake. You could Miss capturing 5 points of material and the review could class it as a blunder.

Its not consistent. just play chess, use the review with caution.

Another one I played Ra4. After Rxc8, Qxb3. There's no way to prevent checkmate on both a2 and b2. White resigns.

You guys should read the earlier pages, as it has been explained many times that brilliant moves are awarded to sacrifices, and great moves are ones that change the course of the game ( cause a shift in the eval bar ).

Once had a position where I could promote a pawn to a queen but both promotion squares where defended by the same bishop. One promotion was a best move and the other, the one I took was a brilliant move because it was a slightly better position

I had a move I played and I knew it was going to be brilliant, it wasn’t a accidental brilliant move as all of my other brilliant moves were. However, I miss played and lost the game

for some reason a brilliant move is a sacrifice mostly. I got a red brilliant that includes a queen sacrifice.

in short terms brilliant moves are critical sacrifices
