    One of the best games I've played in a while:
    https://www.chess.com/live/game/1705971536

    Gosh, 45|45 takes the life outta me. My games almost never reach proper endgames and I've never studied the endgame in any detail at all (so I'm generally very bad at them) so this was a real thinking test for me. One thing I made sure is that I didn't care if I won, drew or lost, I would make sure I grinded out this endgame to the very best of my ability and I was very happy with the win. I think the Silman strategy lessons on Chess Mentor helped me a lot in this game.

    Out of interest ran your game through chess.com's max and it gives a preferable assessment of 5 average centipawn loss. Nothing but "excellent" and "good" moves from either player until move 33 (you having the larger share of "excellent" moves, hence your advantage - I presume "good" moves are moves which technically lose some centipawns but aren't serious enough to be considered inaccuracies) when white plays an inaccuracy. White plays a couple more before the horrific blunder (though his position is already very weak of course) 38. Re4. Nicely played. It seems your strategic ability is strong. Myself I am tactically okay (broke 1900 in the trainer today), but tactics flow from a superior position, and I let people even of very low ratings walk all over me in positional terms and then no tactical nous can save me. I might try some more of those lessons if you think they helped you. :beard:

    I don't have max since I'm only platinum membership but thanks analysing it!
    Yeah I get what you mean from earlier though, even though this guy was sub 1500 he took a hell of a lot of effort to beat, simply because the position never got too complicated so I had to gradually build up a positional advantage and grind the endgame (using every morsel of my strategic ability lol) to convert it. Problem with playing against 2.Bc4 is that you always get a slightly stronger position as black but it can simplify too much (d5 eventually must be played which in fact simplifies the position some).

    I never used to be good at strategy now but I'm improving - a lot of the ideas I used in this game I had seen up to 3/4 moves in advance which is nice because your opponent walks right into your plans .
    I did notice that you're very strong on tactics trainer; I've just broken 1800. So I think your tactical ability is fine for now, definitely have a go at what I did and do some of IM Silman's lessons on mentor where you play through games, it's very instructive (and difficult!).
    Also I spent a lot of time on my moves, really draining but I get accurate play out of it which I couldn't produce in blitz.

    Also it might be useful to note that watching ChessNetwork has helped me massively with my chess thinking; I'd try to emulate his kind of thought patterns when he's playing standard games.
