    I don't know, Ryan. I'm not making videos for this site anymore.

    Very helpful video! Both systematic and clear. Just adopted the mistake journal idea. Are there going to be any more videos in this series for 1400+ players?

    i would not suggest using computer analysis, i think it's bad for you.

    how to plan and how to analyze yourself are two separate disciplines. but there are examples which are overlaps: for example, analyzing a position where you were trying to decide on a plan will both improve your planning and your understanding of any shortcomings in your own planning thought-process.

    5 star instruction, I think this is better than any video I have seen on how to plan, which is ironic when you consider the idea is teach you how to analyse a position. Are they both the same I wonder.

    Haven't finished watching this, but so far so good.  David's typical thoughtful teaching style: not too many words, and very well chosen!

    you can learn something by analyzing any chess moves or position, including your opponents moves. but you are not going to learn about what your mistakes are from analyzing anyone else's moves.

    This was really helpfull! Thanks!

    Also, would it help if we also looked at our opponents' mistakes and saw some better moves for them?

    Nice stuff there! I liked the lesson learned in regard to opening lines. I will be incorperating analyzing my own games into my study.

    yeah, if you want to improve, and just playing you are staying at a steady level... it may be time to do some of the "dirty work" of studying that few ppl have the stomach for :-P

    Definitely appreciate the video.....I have hit a roadblock in my progress....and it may be attributed to my lack of knowledge when analyzing my own games....Excellent video!!!! Have to slow down my volume of games and do the dirty work and study.....

    A bit more applicable for my level than your first one, but I think the next one will benefit me the most, a good lesson overall though!

    yes, there are a couple more planned, but i have not had a chance to record them yet. there will be another at this level just for improving your opening play, and then a more advanced one.

    I thought the first video (for beginners) was good; this is great! Thank you! Will you be doing more in this series? I sure hope so.

    Marcus and Jeffrey. good point. actually one move before it's even more clear-cut that you can win a piece with Bxg8. at 18:25-30 it's a bit more complex as black can answer Bxg8 with Qc5.

    Benedictine, when you figure out your weaknesses you can work to get rid of them. on the other hand making note of your good moves does not indicate anything for you to study or change in your thought process. thus it's not very useful. it can be helpful up to a point to be aware of your strengths, but it does not appear to have the same direct utility as identifying your weaknesses.

    Gannicus, you are asking a very important question. it's very tricky to compare a correct move and a wrong move and extrapolate a lesson from it. i tried to give an example of this process within this video, in explaining how we can try to understand the difference between e6 and exd6, and thus learn something about chess (that when opening lines, it matters *who* will be using the lines we open). with every example, the lesson to be learned will be different; and often it will be purely tactical (no generalizable chess lesson), but in that case you still want to take note of what patterns there are to when you miscalculate, in what positions, and which kinds of moves you are missing.
