36 ( +1 | -1 ) ... just as the late middlegame starts to simplify into the endgame -- not so complex as the early middlegame (and if you're not too good at the opening, you're more often than not playing from behind in the early middlegame), but still offering enough room for interesting tactics that dry up with the cold calculation that comes with the endgame.
63 ( +1 | -1 ) i like openingsopenings are most fun and easiest to study for me. most fun because you can test out strange openings in games to see how well they work for you... and maybe figure out little opening secrets to play for yourself. the entire game can become something you are familiar with if you play an opening variation long enough. i don't usually get to that stage with any openings i use, but i certainly have the same ideas for attack or structure in most of the openings i play. i love to test aggresive openings and gambits on both sides of the board. they're easiest to study (for me) because..... they are fun! i find endgames and middlegames harder to study.
30 ( +1 | -1 ) vietnamese_girl_18The reason I don't much like the opening is not because I'm weak in them, but because they're usually too routine, because I'm too afraid to try a new one. Although I enjoy games with opponents who start with strange ones, which get me thinking from the beginning instead of after about six moves.
7 ( +1 | -1 ) My fave part......is where they accept both your rook sacrifices :-)
42 ( +1 | -1 ) My favorite is the winning middle game. My least is the loosing end game.
I don't like the opening stage because opening was just about preparation. You can win easily (in this stage only) against weak player or doing no creativity by playing based on repertoire (against strong player).
End game is boring because the winner is usualy clear. It's just about hoping to do the second last blunder.
17 ( +1 | -1 ) ME?THE MIDDLEGAME IS WHERE ITS AT!TO DETERMINE YOUR TACTICAL AND POSITIONAL STRENGTH!THE MIDDLEGAME WILL SHOW YOUR ABILITIES IN COMPLEX TACTICS AND SOUND POSITIONAL PLAY!
23 ( +1 | -1 ) i like the endgame the most although i often find myself down on material at that stage. i think its more important to concentrate on position at an endgame as opposed to counting pieces on either side who agrees?
44 ( +1 | -1 ) THE LOOK...Have you ever played in a "simoultane" (simoultanious games by a master against weaker opponents) and happen to see the master suddenly standing for some moments in front of your chessboard and think about the move? The look that he/she will give at you, the glance by which the master seperates you momentarily from the others, the small reward for your adequate, up to that moment, play....this is the best part of the game...
37 ( +1 | -1 ) Every is differenttambori. I played a simultanous game with G.Kasparow - just after he became the Champion. Eh, the feeling is ... hard to explain... . My to cents to subject - it's differently in different games. In ones I like research of beginning, others atttrack by tactical richness of middlegame, and some games are with complex and interesting endgames. Different games, different views.
12 ( +1 | -1 ) My favourite part of the gameis that little bit at the end when I checkmate the opponent.......yeah !! I really like that bit best.
