How To Analyze Your Chess Games With A Computer [And Improve Faster]

How To Analyze Your Chess Games With A Computer [And Improve Faster]

One of the best ways to improve at chess is to analyze your own games and identify areas for improvement. But how do you do it the right way? How can you use chess engines/computers effectively without feeling overwhelmed when Stockfish points out blunders and tells you that you missed winning tactics?

In today’s video lesson, I will teach you precisely that. You will learn the correct method to analyze your games using an engine. I will present an example game, analyze it with Stockfish, and then share my own insights, highlighting where my analysis differs from the engine’s.

You will discover how to interpret the engine’s evaluations, understand the positional and strategic reasons behind its recommendations, and use this knowledge to improve your game.

Most importantly, you will learn how to combine your own positional understanding with the computer’s analysis to find areas for improvement. This approach will help you reduce mistakes and guide you on the right path to faster chess improvement.

Below, you can find the complete game shown in the video:
