Nearly at month 2

Post by BorgQueen on July 29th 2010, 9:47 pm

I'm nearly at month 2 now, I am eager to get started on it!

Is month 2 hard? Will it teach me how to play when I haven't had enough sleep? lol

Month 2 is disconcerting.

There are basically 2 lessons, one is about king safety and attacks against the castle, it is classical in its presentation.

The other lesson is about center structure, and they present a big bunch of games to illustrate the different kind of centres. Most of us, we wondered the purpose of this, since they give no precise rules about how to deal with these centres. They give general ideas, and the lesson is more a training to get familiar with the structures involved. I doubt you will progress immediately with that lesson, but in fact it serves later in next lessons.

I liked month 2 more than month 1, as it was more detail for the topics.

I am on month 2 now.

Centre structures is something I need work on, so this should be good for me.

Month 1 was kinda "all over the place" so a focus on a topic or two might be good.

I see there are plenty of games to analyse to start with. I've analysed the first one and it looked to me like black played really really badly!
