Alekhine #1

Alekhine’s style inspires awe so it’s no surprise that I chose to study his games. He’s a great model for all chess players :D And thankfully he wrote a few books for everyone to enjoy and learn from. In this game we get to see Alekhine attain a most frightening initiative.

of things to take away.

  • The initiative is the ability to create threats.
  • Be on the lookout for good threats to make.
  • Understand that no trade in chess is equal.
  • Think in concrete terms when threats, attacks and captures are being made.

Tapia 0.0.7

Everything is flowing smoothly. I’m learning a lot and studying as much as I can without losing my mind :D Though maybe my mind is already lost and studying a lot will help me find out. The verdict is still out on that one. I showed some serious tactical deficiencies in this game and I am excited to see how I’ll improve in that area. This seventh revision comes as a result of having analyzed Standard #7.

Time is something that’s really hard to manage while talking. And my problem is compounded by not being the best theoretician but I am actively trying to fix that so I don’t have to panic if I lose one or two games (or even three or four, etc.). And what’s most important is that I still have to improve my general chess to find good moves. I had some chess blindness plus I was unable to use general principles to find what should have been simple moves. Without further ado, here’s the game:

Here’s the game on pgn4web with the PGN code below it.

Debería estar agradecido por todas estas buenas lecciones que mis oponentes me están dando :D Llevo dos partidas este año en donde mi contrincante me juega la varación de cambio en la Española y en todas con negras he enfrentado sólo 1.e4 así que si seguimos con este ritmo seré un experto en 1…e5 muy pronto. Aquí está la partida:
