  2. Sir Can i suggest? If can you make a training on trapping a queen? that is attackig early or maybe in mid game, especially when the time queen attacks on the g and b file.Its like mating a king, but a queen moves so many squares compare to king thats why its so hard for me as a newbie, I guess its good thing.

    1. It is possible to prepare a tactic training to learn these moves. This is a very simple way to do that you want.
      You want something more complex that is difficult to implement.

  3. i also suggest a training on how to defend an opponents mate, like what piece is needed to sacrifice, what square does the king need to move if its in check to avoid checkmate,which is the best to defend a piece as sacrifice to cancel the mate, and how to counterattack when opponent is making mating net. Sometimes defense is most people weaknesses, and that's what i want to improve.
    that's all sir. i hope you will recognize my ideas.

  4. I made a custom position to play against stockfish DD and, because of my huge lead from the start, I was able to promote all of my pawns. However, after I promoted a few of my pawns, Stockfish DD started to move slowly even when there was only 1 legal move.

    1. Analyzing the game gave some pretty weird scores... such as "Black mates in 814" while he (black) has a long king and I have a bunch of queens and a king and 2 pawns.
