What Do You Think of the Recent Videos Where Rensch and Kiewra Play Blitz and Analyze Live?

  • They're great - do more of them!
  • They're entertaining but not too instructive.
  • I like them, but we don't need three videos on the same set of games.
  • The best part is hearing two different players' thoughts on the same games.
  • I like the format but prefer one longer game rather than blitz.
  • I don't care for these videos or format at all.
