Want to improve your chess? Start here! I have watched and analysed and commented on many junior chess games over the years, and I am pretty clear now about the most common reasons for losing a game [or drawing a game you were winning]. They are:
* missing basic tactics
* not sure what to do in the opening
* not sure what to do *after* the opening
* mistakes in finishing off and endgames
It's always a pleasure to have a chance to show these games to a new generation of chess players. Dan fancied learning about a more aggressive opening, and one of the ones we looked at was Evans' Gambit.
