Chess Karma

The effort you put into developing skills in chess is what you get out of it, simple really. I’ve put some good karma into my study of chess, so the Yin Yang balance of Hard and soft has truly increased my knowledge of the game.

Loving the ‘Endgame Opening’ psychology, so have made  5 tutorial vlogs to help with my referencing going forward.

When I first started on my Chess Journey I knew nothing. I accumulated a bit of knowledge on how the pieces moved and thought I knew a little something. I learned many strategies, concepts, tactics, tricks and a range of shifty ideas to gain an advantage in a match. Thankfully, I am the chess player I dreamed of one day being.  Not a champion, nor master of any sort, just a chess player who is very happy with his lot 🙂 ~ Sylvan Clarke

Endgame Opening in Chess – The Creme de la Creme of Chess Play

 

I’ve been looking at some recent games of mine and critically analysed the content of transition to endgame. Simply put there is no transition to endgame. Why do I say this so matter of factly, well I’ve been playing against a few strong computers and looked at how they manoeuvre around the board. The first thing that strikes me is how quickly the computers at their higher level settings charge down the board like they are in endgame mode right from the start. It’s quite amazing to see this happening to me as I thought my endgame had strengthened quite a bit over this last year.

Examples of my games;

Versus Computer Level 1Versus Computer Level 2Versus Computer Level 3Versus Computer Level 4

Versus Computer Level 5Versus Computer Level 6

Unrated/Low rated Chess players are the scariest to play against
