    Really impressed with your positional understanding and the efficient way in which you discuss the control of the vital squares.

    Indeed, I found the lecture on the importance of controlling the vital White Q-4(d4) square [beginning ~9:19] an especially effective training tool for intermediate students.

    Excellent game choice; I have found that while draws at the elite level are often vapid due to the practical nature of playing to eat [the phenomenon of "Preconcieved GM Draws"], bloody 'fighting' draws, like this choice, filled with educational initiative - such as the wisely added Kingside tactic Nakamura pointed out in postgame (including Qg4/Nh5/Nxg7/etc.) - are some of the most essential additions to any effective Chess education. 

    Professional stuff, Jerry. Thanks for posting and I look forward to more!
