I will be playing one every day and try to play the theoretical variation I am recording that day.
From now on I’ll be recording training games as often as I can. I have two measurable goals in my training weeks to come. Aside from working on the endgame, strategy, and a new repertoire, I have set a goal of reaching 2300 in lichess tactics and 2100 in lichess classical.
Today I played a bad game I’m sorry to say. I won at the end, but it was definitely undeserved. I misplayed the opening and the early middlegame and gave my opponent several chances to just go a pawn up and have a simply winning position. I was lucky he missed it.
In the end, he even blundered a pawn for nothing and was just worse.
I managed to control both open files and his queen and rook were much worse than mine. A game to learn from! If you play Nd2 against the French, learn from my mistakes, please!
