|Sep-27-16|| ||pinoymaster77: We're all mortals and there's bound to be a transition at some time.|
I mentioned Dvoretsky, the chess world was saddened by his death today at age 68 na pala, and moment of silence observed in the Tal Memorial. I was just able to listen to early part of the video with GM Gustaffson, the general answer on training is it depends on the individual's playing style and personality. I have Mark's Endgame Manual, probably the 1st edition and showed it to some players for the basic principle of opposition, which sadly some beginners are not drilled in their early stages
|Sep-27-16|| ||pinoymaster77: More on now legendary Trainer / Coach Dvoretsky :|
"One day I realised that I look at chess in a different way from previously and with other eyes than those of a practical player. But I value variations and exact analysis as highly as before. Without them, any general discussions become indefensible, unprovable, and float in the air. But it is impossible for me not to look for the essence of the position behind the variations and the hidden mechanisms that direct the play. Here we have not only chess ideas and technical devices, but also the rules of thought and the principles of rational searching and decision-taking.
Mark Dvoretsky wrote this in the preface to his very first book, "Secrets of Chess Training," published by Batsford 25 years ago. In all his writings that followed, this approach to chess training would return—in short: the search for the truth by thorough analysis."
"Dvoretsky is seen as arguably the best chess trainer in the world; a reputation he built from the late 1970 onward in the Soviet Union. The fame was based on a unique and original training method, developed by Dvoretsky himself. It consisted of creating a "diagnosis" for each student, noting what were his skills and his weaknesses. His method combined lectures and practical training. For each skill, he had numerous chess positions in a huge database (written in an old computer language), dealing with e.g. intermediate moves, combinational vision, or prophylaxis. His collection includes thousands of positions."
|Sep-27-16|| ||pinoymaster77: From the videos, realized Dvo not focused on openings, but on strategic thinking, calculation and analyzing positions, and of course on endgames.|
I remember during the sole session my 2 youngest boys and Jasper had with the late IM Rudy Tan Cardoso, he was a stickler on endgames, since as I recalled almost half of actually played games reach the endgame. A player who consciously steers his games to endgame phase after getting an advantage is Panopio Jr of Calamba.
Of course AFGM Euge is one of foremost endgame maestros, and continues to weave his legend.
|Sep-28-16|| ||epistle: Endgames are not important. Just be good enough not to let your opponents survive your opening and middle game mastery.|
|Sep-28-16|| ||izimbra: Some players need to be thinking all the time about what path they are following to get to a win and whether it is going to connect.|
|Oct-17-16|| ||pinoymaster77: All the best sa finals of current sem, then puede naman harapin ulit chess studies....|
|Oct-23-16|| ||pinoymaster77: World Jrs champ GM Xiong was not able to show he's up to the current US elites when he cannot make headway vs GM Robson in the final round of recently concluded Spice Cup. GM Sevian won his last round game to tie GM Robson at the top with 6.5/9 and even ended up with higher tiebreak. Baka etong si GM Sevian pa mas hinog. Also in the field were US youngsters IMs Ruifeng, Awonder Liang and Chandra but it seems dipa sila hinog to challange the current US top GMs.|
Most of the youngsters would again see action in the UTD Fall Open next month. Malamang yung mga taga Spice/Webster eh sasali. Lets see if UTD alumni GM Ino can play
|Oct-24-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Good projections for the 11 yr old Indian boy wonder Praggy. Devt of our own bbking got stunted, has not shown dominance even at ASEAN level|
|Dec-05-16|| ||pinoymaster77: All the best to IM Pau in both Subic events. The campaign continues|
|Dec-05-16|| ||spawn2: IM Pau,
Goodluck! Hope you bring home a GM norm.
|Dec-06-16|| ||pinoymaster77: All the best vs ExNM Panopio. Kung umabot ng endgame yan eh exciting, hopefully PGNs can be published after eavh playing day, only 18 games per round naman|
|Dec-10-16|| ||pinoymaster77: 2 of the notable games so far are in round 1 the win by FM Segarra over Belarus GM Stupak, and just kanina the win of GM-Elect Haridas over SuperGM Levan from Georgia.|
Kasi di makita sa PGNs of yound 1 games yung win ni FM Segarra
|Dec-31-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Happy New Year to Bersamina family!
Looking forward to UAAP Chess, it will possibly be sked in Jan again. Contending teams will continue to work on their strategies and probe on perceived weaknesses in the line-ups of the 'powerhouse' schools which went away with the championships last season :
NU Bulldogs for Mens College (Mansanero has grad from board 4)
DLSU for Womens College (if Enriquez can play for FEU and with recruit Yaon, FEU can challenge again?)
FEU for HS - they're intact and Miciano and Morado have gone even stronger, can NU and UST effectively challenge?
|Dec-31-16|| ||spawn2: Happy New Year IM Pau and family!|
|Dec-31-16|| ||bubuli55: Happy New Year 2017! IM Paulo and family.|
|Jan-31-17|| ||spawn2: IM Pau..Happy Bday!|
|Feb-01-17|| ||Pulo y Gata: Finally and adult! Let's have a beer or two sometime, IM Pau. Happy birthday!|
|Feb-01-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Happy 19th birthday! All the best on new UAAP chess campaign to retain the Men's crown for NU|
|Feb-01-17|| ||bubuli55: Paulo. Happy Birthday!|
|Feb-02-17|| ||pinoymaster77: This weekend, NU mens team goes up against UP and UST. Wala masyadong rookies / college freshmen due to K-12, though grad na dating bd4 player na si Mansanero, time to test Magtabog naman (from NU HS ranks)|
|Feb-03-17|| ||gokusano: Go NU!|
|Feb-03-17|| ||Pulo y Gata: Go Eddie Ilarde!|
|Feb-03-17|| ||wordfunph: Pau, Happy Birthday!|
|Feb-04-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Ka text Coach Zeus of UE, for his teams :
Mens 1-3 vs FEU
Women 2-2 vs UP
HS 2-2 vs Adamson
When I asked on NU vs UP sa Mens eh winalis ng Bulldogs and Maroons to start their title retention bid
Bukas sa round 2 ang inaabangan eh sa Womens eh defending champion DLSU vs FEU, while sa HS eh defending champion FEU vs UST
Sa Mens, still monitoring who among FEU, DLSU or other pretenders can really mount a challenge to defending champion NU
|Mar-06-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Resume na muna UAAP campaign, for the NU Mens team title retention bid.|
Then have another level of preparation before the next international event, if its going to be in Bangkok
