Great lecture for beginners on a theme I really want to explore further, namely how to progress into the attack against the king from the middle game.
An ez 2 undersand video but very informative!
As a player at a beginning level (1300ish), I felt the need to hop in here and say how wonderful this presentation was. So many times I'm watching videos that are rated for beginners, but I'm still lost in many spots. It seems you're staying very sensitive to your audience. Further, there were several times in here where I was thinking, "but what if black goes g6 or h6?" And then you address it.Oh...and I also wanted to say I would love to see those videos regarding the synergy of the bishop pair that you mentioned.Very helpful for me. I'm excited to watch the rest of your videos.
Astonishing video! I ve seen this game before, but Elliott made it
so so entertaining. Great effort!
This was an extremely enjoyable video.
I have just watched this video again and it is so enjoyable, it is like watching a great movie and never get sick of it.
There are so many good points I like in the video.
Love it. Didnt u play in Xtreme CHess?
also at 32:50 doesn't Bxf6 or Rxg7 followed by Bxf6 work?
at 29:14 why not Rxg7! as Bxf6 wins dramatically and kills the defence on the king?
Wow... Awesome...loved it.
Great video. I enjoyed the comments. Thank you for making.
I smash all my real life friends at chess and this "beginner" video makes me feel like a babbaling idiot!
Beginner video? Tarrasch sees the game 10 moves ahead! His quotes are fantastic, love this video.
great attack and commentary
Lui sais, 'It's way too slow, it's way too late, but hey rather than crawl up in a ball and die slowly.....'...that made me laugh.....One of my fav quotes on here.
Thank you lbtr74aao, am not a premium member so i don't have access to rest of the video, thanks for supplementing the pgn. New at this (playing chess, I mean).
Excellent video!! Sorry about your bike!!!
Very clear explanations, Elliot....wonderful job you've done !!! Thanks...
Tarrasch never used his King's bishop, effectively playing a piece down and winning the game with a brilliant plan. Great game and great attacking ideas.
Please produce more of these fantastic, classic attacking games. Thanks you!

The legendary Tarrasch's quotes are as entertaining as they are enlightening! As FIDE Master Elliot Liu explains in his next installment of the Amazing Games for Beginners series, Tarrasch was not shy with his thoughts in regards to his own brilliance as well as his opponent's short comings. When you watch the incredible, efficient and artistic kingside attack he develops here, it is hard to blame him... Enjoy!
