Day 13 : Friday Night Chess Club
the black side of a Ruy against Bob who I haven't beaten yet. Got through the early opening without tactical mistakes and was pushing a strong attack against his castled king. He ended up trading queens to release the presure.
Later during one move, I did my calculations on my position.Went through a bunch of variations and saw that one move that on the surface looked good ended up losing a piece for me. At the end of my calculation, I forgot this and ended up moving and losing the piece.
I need to do a final sanity check before making all moves.
Going throught the Bain book seems to be helping me quickly identify tactical ideas as well as make better trades. I also am making fewer counting mistakes after reading this: A Counting Primer
