I have been taking some lessons with an opening coach, and I have now got an extensive repertoire that I need to memorise. I have a big qualifying tournament in 2 weeks and up until that time I want to try and memorise at least the mainlines of all the variations, but best case scenario would be to commit the entire thing to my long term memory.
The repertoire is in Chessbase, and I am currently using the 'replay training' and simply looking through the moves to try and memorise them. I feel that this strategy is inefficient and ineffective, and I was wondering if anyone knew a better way to memorise opening moves or if anyone knows some software I can export a game file to and then use to help me memorise.
From brainstorming I think it might be useful to try looking at games of the openings, to get good feels for the ideas behind the moves so that I can remember them more easily rather than just arbitrary numbers and letters - from my research the human mind is much better at remembering ideas instead of numerical data.
