In real life, we learn from our mistakes. It’s truth in suicidechess too.
In a suicide game, we often lose on a single move. You need to know which one. Sometime it’s obvious, you can see it in a second after your move, but it’s not the case, you need to know. In regular chess, the one who make the last mistake loss the game, in a suicide game, the one who make the first one usually lost the game.
To spot your mistake, you can use several tools: a opening book, a suicide chess engine or end game table. You can also ask someone to help you, most of suicide player are willing to help / analyze game.
You have spot your mistake, now you can do two things:
The first one it’s easier, and you can continue playing game. The second one may take a lot more time. Example 1.e3 b5 2.Bxb5 Bb7 is lost for black, learning to not play it as black it’s easy, but learning how to win this as white, it’s very hard : only suicide engine can play it perfectly. So you may ask : »When should I learn to win a lost position? » There’s no perfect answer. Just try, if after a amount of time / asking other suicide player , you don’t see the win, just pass over and go play some game.
In the last few week, I have learned a lot mostly by losing a lot of games against Nilatac and StayAlive. Against them, you can know right a way when you made a mistake: Nilatac is telling you, and StayAlive start to play very fast.
Analyze one game can help you more than a hundred games…
