The weather is getting colder in the Northern hemisphere, while our friends in the South are preparing for the summer; everyone though is participating in more and more OTB tournaments, trainers and students alike. You must have noticed the changes in the schedule, and we hope you like them!
There are some very interesting discussions on the forum; in one of them Jacob points out that you will always make mistakes. So, looking for some way whereby you will no longer make mistakes, will not work.
Developing a good feeling for chess requires a lot of experience and thought. Many examples, analysis, games played, mistakes made. You cannot understand chess, without possessing great knowledge of it.
Analysing your games deeply and understanding both the practical nature of mistakes and the actual chess on the board is a big part of this work.

A Dane with Stockholm syndrome? Apparently, Jacob has been pronouncing his name all wrong in this video. Not daring to watch it, we will leave that up to you. Much improved video quality over the past weeks! No image of Jacob!
