    Last vidoe was nice.

    Couple questions. After Pd6 Bf8 could white simply play Qxb7? Planning to push his a-pawn?

    Also, in your final position, after Kg6, you were looking for a way trade queens. Does Qg8 do that?

    Well, 4.d6 Bf8 5.Qxb7 is a potentially serious mistake as now black plays Qxd6 and white struggles to avoid harrasment on the dark squares.

    I dunno what white does, maybe 5.Qxb7 Qxd6 6.Qf7 (to keep contact on g6) Qa6 or Qf6 ideas come to mind (Atm, I don't see the way to push the a-pawn through without black infiltrating into your kings position)

    If there is a win (and there may be), it might be SUPER long and deep ....this kind of line is not consistent with the theme of the puzzle.

    And yes...Qg8 does the job, LOL! Good find, smh @ myself

    Good idea though, Varesle.

    I can't mention enough how good Naka is. I was recently watching the recorded match vs penguingm though, and I must say that kid is incredible in his own right. His speed is actually on par with Naka's, but of course he generally blunders eventually or gets strategically outplayed. But imagine if he was 400-500 elo points stronger OTB than he is right now, how good he would be at bullet.

    But yeah even when Naka plays penguin, at light speed basically, he just never ever blunders. Even when he loses it's because he allowed something way into the endgame. It's just so hard to comprehend how what they do is even remotely possible, to hell with patterns. Because it seems like half of their moves are premoves -- it's one thing to make many moves without blundering, then try making many premoves without blundering! And the moves all make perfect sense -- I bet I could get a ton of instructive value just by studying those games. I recommend people search for that match, the one where Naka thought Andrew Tang was Carlsen. I'll try to find a link.

    Yeah, he was dead serious too. All because Naka only won 80% of the games :)

    By the way, I like your endgame video InfiniteFlash. Very instructive. I remember when you showed that position to me for the first time :D a6!!?! lol.

    A major change POSSIBLY is coming to the channel.

    I will likely change the name of the channel, design and video topics entirely. Rather actually, its not me, its "we".

    The university I am attending may use the channel as its avenue to really get ourselves out there to generate more buzz. (since it already has over 80 subscribers, rather than starting from scratch, but this is me just speculating) We also might just start from scratch.

    If what I think is coming, the channel will be InfiniteFlash no more, but WILL be replaced with many others, many of who are much higher rated and better players than myself.

    So if the username on youtube changes, please don't unsubscribe because youre not sure how the channel got on your subscribers list.

    I'll be updating and transforming the channel away from InfiniteFlash, into the university's chess channel in the next few days. An entire overhaul will be coming.

    I have to check if I am allowed to post any personal videos....like the ones I've been posting haha. 

     

    @mainline_novelty, probably not Cry

    I am not sure whether or not I can post personal stuff outside of the chess club, on the channel just yet. I'm not being restricted here yet. Nothing like this has been determined as of yet.

    WOW, youtube will not let me change the URL of the youtube channel again. 

     

    It's by far one of the dumbest things I've ever encountered. It looks like the channel will not be changed after all. 

    I'll be creating another channel that you guys can check out though. That one will be the university affiliated one.

    I made this video much longer than the previous two since this game had a very interesting tactical part near the end of the game. That required quite a bit of criticism of Aronian's play.
