    Your definition of fork is wrong (at about 16:50).  It's not "a move that attacks something more than once"; that would be a double attack.  A fork is a move that attacks two or more different squares with a single piece.  So I think you probably meant to say it's "a move that attacks more than one thing"

    Why do people talk about xray vision when they talk about pins?  Xrays and vision have nothing to do with it.  The player can see everything.  The bishop itself can't see the queen, because it doesn't actually have xray vision, it can only see the knight.  If the knight moves, then it can 'see' the queen.

    I think part of being a good chess player, or a good anything for that matter, is having a healthy dose of humility.  I'm a self-taught intermediate player.  I've learned a lot by going back and reviewing this series of games for beginners.  Remember, they were all played by grandmasters of the highest caliber and analyzed for us by players much better than at least me.  I can learn from any of them.

    Liu introduces principles and tactics discussing a well know Morphy game.

    Morphy plays white, royality plays black using Philidor defense.

    Liu introduces tactics - the pin, the fork, removal of guard, target square and discovery; and principles for example - often times when a player is behind he/she may want to do a series of trades.

    Video closes with a powerful queen knight tandom attack.

    thanks

    at 26:00 of the video, why didn't black take e4 with the knight? Black didn't seem to be under any severe threat.

    VERY HAPPY!!!!  

    Always good to go back to the basics and more importantly hear you responsive to the players' level on Chess.com.

    Probably could pick it up a little higher (I see some complaints about redundancy) but really it's never bad to reinforce the concrete on the ground floor.

    thanks!

    It would be nice if there was some kind of rating system, so I could give this video a thumbs up.  I can usually appreciate parts of the more advanced videos, but I really enjoy the ones that are at my skill level.  Thanks.
