analysis chessAnalysis of your own games is extremely important part of self-development process. I’m sure that without a proper evaluation of your own games, deep analysis of critical positions, identification of key mistakes and patterns it is almost impossible to make serious progress as a chess player.

It does not mean, however, that the analysis of your own games is the only task a chess player needs to do. Of course, studying classical games, learning elementary endgames, common middle games and some opening theory are also important for becoming a stronger player.
