Thankyou an extremely detailed explanation on the early c4.
Very interesting ! And the cool presentation style is really pleasant.
Good lecture, thanks
Very good explanation of the KIA and how to defend against it as black. I don't play the KIA but now I know how to recognize and defend against it.
I tried to atack vs computer but always lose... I have to learn much more...!
very good learned a good bit from that....i like the fact that your voice was clear on concise,i did not have to strain to understand,keep it up...
Charles thanks a million for insight into positional ideas. What you have discussed in this video, we can apply in our games with different openings as well. Please continue your videos.
I enjoyed that. You are an excellent teacher. Your voice quality is good. I' m wondering if this defensive structure is good agaisnt most openings.

Here he covers the very early c4 by white, explaining very clearly how to find the right moves for black and how to evaluate the resulting positions, by looking at the minor pieces and their prospects for activity.

Charles picked up chess in middle school after his mother bought him what was then Chessmaster 7000. The one and only chess club in town was in an establishment previously owned by his father so needless to say he felt right at home. Locally, he excelled at the scholastic level going on to become Florida's K-12 Champion and Denker representative. He currently attends College where he plays Board two for one of our coutry's top chess teams.
