Behind every error and bad decision such as Bad Draw Offer/Acceptance there is a mind-set. It can almost always be affected by the emotional baggage of past results, or something that your opponent or somebody else said to you that can trigger off a certain mindset.
For example - let's examine my attitude towards players with ratings north of 2000. Still that Expert/Master Victory eludes me. Firstly, I adopted a fairly passive attitude/position against these players. Then, after an expert made me aware of that fact I did try to play more aggressively. Trouble is, as soon as I did try tentative attacks such as in the two games below, I came unstuck.
These games have shades of some of my games with Coach Ion. As soon as I tried to go "aggressive" against him I came off worse in a load of tactical shots.
Anyhow, I all hope you have a good read and a nice day.
Bye for now.
That's the software, for the actual games, you can download a database of several million games in SCID format from here:
This is periodically updated with new/recent games. there are also online game databases, but I prefer using software like SCID, since it has a lot of nice features that the online databases lack.
You're a strong enough player that you should have a good idea of what kinds of openings you like to play.
Find some GM games in the database where they play the same openings that you do. One way to do this is to search for a position from one of your games where you left your opening preparation. Then don't just play through the game, but try to analyze on your own, and see how your analysis matches the actual moves played. If training for an OTB tournament, I would recommend setting up a real chess board, and analyzing without moving the pieces, but write down your analysis.
The important thing is to review lots of GM games in the variations that you play, so that you get a good idea of the successful plans, pitfalls, and tactics to watch for. Then when you reach similar positions in your own games, you'll be better able to find candidate moves, since you'll have some idea of what works and what doesn't.
