How to Eliminate Blunders? (PART-2)

Comments: 27

We keep revealing the most effective anti-blunder techniques for you.

On 21st November “Chess Mate” published the 2nd part of my lesson “How to Prevent Blunders”. If you are Indian, you may like to check out that paper magazine (by the way, it’s one of the oldest chess magazines in the world, and the biggest one in India).

For my non-Indian students, I’ve just recorded a video lesson about the same topic. Check it out  and become a blunder-free player!

  1. About the last advice my personal experience is different and I can see no significant difference in my ability to solve chess problems when I look at it from the opponent side of the board and I had no problem to find Bg1. I also do not feel that attack is easier relative to defence. Note that when I saw the first position I thought for few seconds about the opponent attacking replies and did not see something dangerous.

    I thought about Ng3+ Qc1+ Qg1+ Nh6

    I did not stop the video in the beginning and it is possible that I could find Rxd5 with more time but I am not sure that black did not ask himself what are the opponent forcing replies and maybe black did not analyze enough moves of black and at least for me initially Rxd5 does not seem very dangerous because it only captures a pawn(so it seems that in the worst case I am going to be a pawn down and not lose the game) and also it put the rook in the diagnol of the g2 bishop so even without capturing the queen I can think white may have some dangerous attack against it.

  2. Great video thank you , In long time control I’m never in time problems , always keep think in the opponent time and never go away from the board and only concentrate on the game 🙂

  3. it is a great video ! thank you very much ! i like in my games to play the English opening, please if you can or have some videos or ideas about this system as a head lines to be followed be you ? I am very impressed be your teaching stile and I conceder you the greatest teacher in Chess ! THANK YOU AGAIN AND I HOPE TO REPLY ME !

  4. Thank You very much Igor !! Excellent video. This is an important topic. According to me safety and the coordination of the pieces are the most important principle in chess. Your must always look at the opponent plan and protect all your pieces. I want to say one important thing: when you understand better chess and you improve your positional judgement, you make less mistakes, because you know the requirement of the position.

    1. It depends on what you need the most.
      I’ll conduct a survey soon, and you’ll be able to let me know your needs/questions. After that I’ll determine the next course’s topic (based on your needs).

  5. Hey Igor, you are an excellent Chess teacher. Thank you so much for your anti-blunder video. I am keen to work on the techniques that you taught in your great lesson. Thank you again, Jim

  6. Often I overlook some moves from my opponent in the middle of a variation. This way I play a move which looks good only to discover that a few moves later my opponent can do something very good. Is there a good way to avoid such situations?

    1. Hi Oksana,

      GM Igor has a busy schedule. I will help you.

      Apart from the tips in this article. Igor recommends to double check a move for tactical blows for your opponent before you play a move to avoid blunders.
