Analyzing Your Wins

One of the things that we are all taught is that you should analyze your own games, especially your losses and draws.  After all, the idea is that you will learn from your mistakes.

FM Alex Betaneli recently gave a lecture at the Southwest Chess Club where he said that it's just as important to analyze your wins to see what might have been missed there as well.

This is especially true at the class Thursday I played a game that I won without ever being in serious trouble.  Yet when I looked at it with my coach he showed me that it was a blunder fest which I was lucky to escape from.

Once again, I horribly misplay an opening and then I get lucky when my opponent misses a crushing follow up.
