It's just amazing...
Just thought of why he may have stopped...
Maybe he actually got a bit better and realized he has no idea what he's talking about.
The Fried liver attack against the prof!You gotta be kidding me.Playing such dubious openings against masters who absolutely crush one move combinations is useless.
Possibly. He could also be on chess forums and have come across discussions of his videos.
It is interesting when you first see the lines. Its a wild game if you are a romantic style player. Its not something you see the top players use, maybe due to the risk or they have all the lines worked out anyway. Capa called it a duffers move or something along those lines but its a challenge unless you have a database to look at.
Maybe. But the youtube videos have been full of criticism for a long time and he ignored them.
Gosh, it's such a shame he isn't much, much, much better than he is. I would LOVE to watch someone as passionate as this guy that were an excellent player/ teacher. That dude loves what he's trying to teach. You can tell he loves trying to teach it. If he were to truly become good, he may be the best teacher on planet earth.
Good point. Another idea came to mind is that maybe some of those criticising him also challenged him to prove how wrong he is.
I know :)
I was watching some IM's video a few days ago and it was TERRIBLY dull. I could hardly get through it, it was so boring.
Need to find that perfect mix of enthusiasm, presentation, and skill.
Chessnetwork aka Jerry is the guy you're looking for.
Yeah, he has the enthusiasm and presentation in spades. If he reads through these forums, I would implore him to get the skill up there to match, and he could truly be the best chess coach or teacher anyone could ask for. He would make game analysis fun!
Never heard of the Fried Liver Attack, certainly doesn't lack creativity in its name !
Ha! That's great advice! I need remember that every time I open my mouth about anything.
good luck with Nxd5? in the fried liver.
I think he realized that he had lost the knight when he retreated the king to e8 but decided not to admit the mistake.
Nah, the professor always knows what he's talking about. Here is a WFM who didn't manage to win against her lower rated opponent...
