Dan authors the award-winning Novice Nook column (winner of three Chess Journalists of America "Best Instruction" awards), aimed at improving adults, for that are clearly written and offer very practical advice and tips on how to improve your game. More info about Dan can be found here. In the new Improve Your Chess series, Dan provides instruction by reviewing amateur games played on ICC and showing where the players went wrong and how to improve.

Today's show: 45-45 game. Black gets move order wrong in opening and loses pawn. White has the advantage but the game gets complicated and the higher rated player plays too quickly in the complications. Finally a big blunder allows the lower rated player to play some obvious moves to win big material. With decent technique and both sides playing way too quickly, the lower rated player gathers in the point.
