    great video, but did anyone else hear the guy say, in coughing voice, "bullsh!t situation" at 9 mins 50 seconds to 9 mins 52 seconds? he was talking about an obvious mating pattern, and I heard it in the background... funny stuff.

    Great lecture as usual.  What does white do if Rxd3 at 20:32 instead of the game move Bd4?  Idea of h4 and if covers g3 with queen then Qh6. and if white shifts to attack the g4 pawn then Qg5, the point being that the white queen can't cover g3 and g4 at the same time. i'm thinking rxd3 qxd3 h4 qd5 qh6 qxe5 h4 and kh2 i believe fails due qh4 and rf8 idea. i'm doing this in my head...somebody can check.

    Really great video.  It's amazing how you are able to take a drawish looking position and crush a very good player with such simple ideas.

    Very nice commentary. Activate your pieces and you have said that time after time. Best here was Bc5 and then give up  pawn to keep Bishop active...very instructive. Many thanks.

    Thanks Melikset. I dont usually know what to do after I develop my pieces, so many choices. Your videos about postional play and playing against bad pieces and imbalances are opening up my mind for middle game ideas. Thank you.
