TOPIC: Developing your repertoire

Developing your repertoire 3 years 3 months ago #56

Hello

The manual suggests that a key feature of CPT is to allow you to develop middlegame ideas and positions then find candidate moves that help lead you to those positions. Not surprisingly it says this is a difficult task. I understand the concept but not sure I understand the best way to go about achieving this. I don't mind putting in the hard work necessary but would welcome any views from anyone who is achieving this and any ideas they may be able to offer.

Many thanks

Dave

Hi Dave

Read this blog post. It goes into a lot of detail on how you can train positions.

The section at the bottom talks about using CPT for the middle game.

"CPT offers you a smart way to manage middle game ideas and model games for an opening separately from the opening moves."

Hi Mahlon

Thanks for the link which is helpful. I am not sure if from a tabiya position it shows me all openings in my repertoire that get me to that position or just continuation in my repertoire thereafter. I will have to explore this. It's the former I want. In other words can I steer openings towards my favoured tabiya positions?
Thanks
Dave

Hi Mahlon, Im totally new on CPT, have red the manual and the blog for creating an repertouire to train an opening. But Im sorry I get not the results I need to train different Variations. Lets say I want to train Kings Indian with White. So I have the start position and put in the first 4 Moves . lets say 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4.Bg5. At this point I would train two different ways to react a) against 4..d6 and b) against 4..c5.
I want to train theese two variantions just from the start. How can I manage this, that CPT set in the first trainingsession 4.. d6 as Black and I play that line 5 or 6 moves. And in the next session CPT plays 4..c5.
Cause If I put only two candidatemoves in one opening CPT plays only the first Candidate (4..d6) and never the second. I try it with tabyias but I didnt get it. Would you please give me an detailed step by step help. This would be a great help for me. Thx Siddhi

@Siddhi: Okay, this forum software sucks. I wrote a long and detailed reply and when I hit post I got "session expired" and lost 30 minutes of typing.

In short:

In the Opening Repertoire you need to tell CPT which moves are considered "Best".

Check your "Candidate Moves" list in the Opening Repertoire and make sure all the moves you want to train are Check Marked in column B (for Best). In your case 4...d6 and 4...c5.

In Training, look at the top of the training window for "Correct Move" option. Make sure "All Best Moves" is selected. "Top Ranked Move" is the default.

CPT should now choose either 4...d6 or 4...c5 in that position.

@DaveF:
This isn't really what Tabiyas are for. In CTP you can set a line to practice if you want to reach and test a certain position in your repertoire. Or you can set a certain position for CTP to try and reach (I think) if it exists in the repertoire.

Tabiyas are used for positions that do not appear in your repertoire.

Say there is a Super GM game in your favourite Sicilian variation that reaches an interesting middle game position.

The position is typical of this variation of the Sicilian so you want to study it but the position itself does not appear in your repertoire.

You would create a Tabiya of that position so you can study it and any further moves even though the exact position is never reached in your repertoire move sequences.

You can have a collection of Tabiyas that allow you to study typical middle and end-game positions without the exact positions being in your repertoire.
