Glad to see you've started a training journal and good luck meeting your goal of making it to the national championships!

Black made some pretty strange moves in that game. Both Nh6 and the decision to play Bg4 and then move the bishop back to c8 were weird. Anyways, the way the score is written is a bit difficult for people to read. You might get more comments on the game if it's a little more readable (I hope you don't take offense, I just think you'll get more useful replies). One thing that would help is putting one more per line, like this:

1.e4 c6
2.e5 d5
3.d4 Qc7
....etc

Also it's easier for people to provide comments if they can play through the game easily with a replayer window. You can create a replayer here, although it requires a PGN file. Another option would be to include a couple diagrams with the game score, so people can see some of the key positions.

Hope that helps and I'm excited to hear more about your quest to make it to the national championships!

hello everybody i hope you all enjoyed my last game. i played (and unfortuneately lost) a great game against trial and error to day. it was a blindfold game for each of us. i think i had perpetual check somewhere in there if im wrong please notify me of it. you can find it in game replay and analysis. random lord posted it (thx) and i htink it was a very great game.

Ra8 14.Bxe7 Qxe7 15.Qxc7 Bxg2+ 16.Be2 Bxh1 0-1 white resigns. a beginner mistake DONT take your queen out to early. white got punished in that game.

you should try using the game replayer as Josh pointed out. Following the games would be much easier

hello everyone i have an otb tournament tomorrow. i tied for second in it last year but i came in fourth on tie breaks (fourth doesnt get any prize money) . ive been practicing very hard for this tournament. its the junior tournament for my city and this is the last year im eligible for it so i really want to win. if i win i get 500$ so i can buy some chess books with that. i tried to reach a solid 1500 on the chess tactics server before this tournament but im a solid 1490 so i figure thats close enough. i no all of the main lines for my kings indian attack and my kings indian defence by heart so i shoudnt get caught up in any of the openings. ive been studying mostly tactics and ive been watching a lot of josh,s endgame videos . i will post games from the tournament tomorrow or the next day .wish me luck[;

ok hello everyone today i did an interesting evperiment. i went to chess tactics server. my regular rating there is 1500. when i first started there my rating was about 1300. i decided to just get problems wrong and drop my rating to 1300 and c if it took as long to get it back up to 1500 as it did the first time.it was incredibly easy to get my rating back up to 1500 while it was pretty hard the first time. this means that i am improving on that sight everyday by a bigger margin then just playing blitz chess . this doesnt mean that im going to stop playing chess but im going to go on chess tactis server a lot more and i reccomend it to everybody who wants to get better at chess. :D

great! Glad to see that the CTS is working. I agree, intensive tactics study is much more productive than just playing lots of blitz games, etc.
