    Charles, you've done it again -- a great, very instructive Video!  Please make more of them.  I second the evaluation of Matteos that you are the best.  I believe you pause to help us process what you are saying and come up with a better understanding of the position ourselves.  That's what a great teacher does:  he gives his students time to think and come up with an answer for themselves instead of just getting the answer from his teacher.  Your use of graphics: arrows and color, lighted squares: your timeing: are well done and are very helpful.  I wish more instructors on Chess.com would notice what you are doing and encourage others to do much of the same.  Mahalo again.

    Very nice video, you have done a very good job explaining the concepts. Thank you so much, this has helped me a lot with my chess. Now it would be difficult to forget those concepts after what I have seen here. Brilliant, keep posting more! Smile

    Thanks Charles. You make the best videos on this site. Rensch is good too, but he drinks too much coffee.

    More please!

    At around 14 minutes, you said too many arrows. I laughed thinking you've not been watching Danny Rensch's videos.

    I like the sealing moves closing off files and effectively leaving no attacking moves for his opponent.

    I enjoyed the video and the commentary. One thing I didn't agree with was the hype surrounding the move a6 calling it one we will not soon forget and "brilliant." Most club players would have played this natural move. I thought the game was brilliantly played though and very instructive.

    The pauses are so that we can consider what move we would play in the game. I appreciate that FM Galofre keeps his viewer so well in mind this way. He paused in this game, for example, just long enough that I had begun to consider ...h6 a second before he came in and gave it away as Petrosian's move. It was much more helpful to me to find this move rather than just have it pointed out to me. It's the difference between active and passive learning.

    Deja vu! I made the exact same mistake as Spassky in a tournament game the other day. I was hoping for a kingside attack and aimed for a pawn on e5 but my opponent had not castled yet so the pawn just became a weakness that almost cost me the game. The piece placement and pawn structure was very similar but it came from a london opening with the bishop going to f4 directly. Good video. Thanks.

    I really wanted to watch till the end but the pauses just did my head in.  Charles, if you knew what you were gonna say - 'before' - you made the video, it would be more professional.
