From 9.25.05 to present, I have been collecting games that I played on playchess which automatically saves them to a Internet games folder. From there I often analyse the games using Fritz over night and in the morning take a look at the more interesting games. At this time I have over 4652 games with some duplicates and others played by others.
I am thinking about ways to improve from this huge collection of games. It is somewhat overkill and I am thinking about ways I can learn in a systematic intellegent way. An element of my games that improved is openings. I use the opening analysis portion of Fritz that shows some sample games in the same openings as where they diverge. I do a quick scan of these and have picked up some ideas as to what some of the GM's and better players have played .
My latest idea is to put key words in my annotations to so I can search on games worthy of future study. I have learned that I can search on words and look to add key words. Such as :instructive position, rook endgame , attack on the kingside castle, pawn storm. There is so many gmaes that it is somewhat daunting how to classify and study them. Perhaps I will just look at my Traxler games or my wild sicilian games against Scottcat.
