How many moves was the game? Correspondence game or blitz/rapid? You should get the points. If you abandon a game after move 2. I'm p sure it counts as a loss.

That is if the game ended. When my time runs out I just go into "vacation" mode on a correspondence game because I pay 5 bucks a month to chess.com (mostly for extra tactics puzzles) and I can come back whenever. Maybe it was like that?

I'm guessing you can still abort a game at that point.

yooo the game isn't over! Material is pretty much even despite the position. You could still do this.

I've been trying to examine my own games more closely once they're done. idk why.. it's just been fun to try to improve at chezz. If you want, I can take notes on this one and include my thoughts about how we reached this position. I think this position was contingent on a few key opening moves, and it could maybe save you from repeating a mistake for future games.

I've seen this book universally recommended. Logical Chess Move by Move: https://www.amazon.com/Logical-Chess-Every-Explained-Algebraic/dp/0713484640

Although it isn't only about openings, I think it covers the principles of an opening really well.

I don't want to come off as a supposed expert or anything, because I am an amateur too.

An important advice that I got was to not play openings (like, don't play "Kings Indian" or "Slav Defense" or "Queen's Gambit") because those openings have different systems that, unless you've studied every possible outcome and every position, you can easily mess up if you don't play them a particular way. I was told to:

1. Develop towards the center, so that your pieces are trying to control the four squares in the middle
2. Develop minor pieces first. So, develop your knights and bishops first, and move the pawns up for that purpose only.
3. Castle early
4. Don't move the pawns around the king after you've castled

Also, my rating improved by like 100 points when I started to focus on my undefended pieces. My biggest focus on my games right now is to make sure no pieces are left undefended (which I'm failing at in our game right now).

Chess.com has a "lessons" section that is good. I use it all the time. It goes through beginner, intermediate, and advanced opening principles.

I'd also be down. I mainly play on lichess.org. I could set up a live tournament on there if a few people are interested?
