My first two videos for Chess.com

Welp, it's been quite the adventure I must say. In the end I won the contest that Chess.com held to become one of the new faces of the Chess.com YouTube channel. It was a dog fight, believe me. We all tried our hardest to win.

Here are my first two videos for Chess.com. The first one is a lecture type lesson and the second one is a blitz game.

The comments for the second video are pretty funny. Here's a direct link to the video in case you want to scroll down and check them out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmDJ0k4revk

Some of them are really nice!

    Are you kidding?  All you'd get is Squarology saying, "BAZAMSKY" and "Look, a dream come true... she hung her queen!  She didn't listen to her pieces because she's too freaking noisy!" and me saying, "You pest!!  ***expletive**** knights!!!  Aggghhhh!!!!!" and the like.

    @Dr, if you and Squareology ever did a game and _both_ of you were saying what was in your head, I think I'd truely be on the floor laughing :-)

    Harvey, you know how I am.... And these held my attention. Not easy to do! They're very well done and I do often laugh out loud. I especially get a kick out of the personification -- dreams of attacking on the kingside. Listen to your pieces, etc. of course, I've mentioned that If I listen to my pieces, I'm likely to hear some offensive language and we all know by now that I'm too dang noisy!! ;). Heh, heh.

    I think I figured out two things:

    1. You are a storyteller who plays chess. Nice combination! (pardon the pun) You bring the pieces to life :-)

    2. The guy who said you capture your own pieces has never seen a "pre-move", lol.

    I just watched the first vid... You are funny! So funny in fact, that what you said I could understand... How did you do that?

    Warmest congratulations!!! I know that I just kind of stumbled upon your videos one day when browsing around and was immediately impressed with the style. I enjoyed them very much and I shall, of course look forward to whatever you produce. Please allow me to thank you for the work that you put into them and for sharing them with us!
