Very, very nicely explained. 41min is a long time for an impatient person like me, but FM Liu kept the focus throughout - and I got many valuable teachings from it. Thanks!
super really liked it
Another great video, so entertaining and educational.
Btw, the very first chess book I had was by Andric:)))
He was really an interesing person, spoke 12 different languages, worked in theatre, spent a decade teaching literature in the USA. it`s a shame he didn`t have more time for chess, considering the games like this one!
at 28:40 doesn't Nh5 threatening to move the light squared bishop and place N to f5 with Bg7+ coming up next.
doesn't that also win the game?
Very instructive lesson! You really teach well!
Thank you very much!
Thank you. Great Video. I had to watch it 3 times in a row! Keep up the good work.
Cant get enough this is so good
Thanks, that was very useful.
Amazing! Great work Elliott! Another amazing video for beginners. But, come on, son!
You can't say there must be a better way at the end without showing us the way.
As Peter Frampton might say, I want you to show me the way.
Thank you. I wish I could calculate like that! Oh well, onward and upward ....
Thank you for showing the finish up! Maybe these guys had some type of a rivalry which asked Andric to teach Daja a lesson, or maybe it was his nature, way to many read and forced moves for Andric not to be "playing" his opponent, right?
Thanks for the video, pleasant to watch and very instructive.Good work !
Absolutely fantastic. Monticelli trap was mentioned...I think to myself, "great, another trap I need to look up (i am a beginner)." as I am getting ready to push pause to meander on over to wikipedia to look up the monticelli trap I hear, "let me show you the monticelli trap for the beginners out there." You read my mind. The gist of my story is that it is nice for someone to talk about this game without assuming the watcher knows the lingo.
this was brilliant stuff elliot!
Sorry myself Patzer Jonny dont agree the structure after bxc3 is not great for white and black could continu Nc6 Na5 and maybe c5 white has to prove he has such good play with these double pawns. Also instead of Nc3 which allows Black to trade off a pair of knight in his cramped position a good waiting move can be Re1 and if black answer c5 d5! white is better. Others line with Nc3 are drawish as Alexander Alekhine told us very long ago. In anycase tx for the videos and i loved the first one. And since i am not a FM but only a class A player in quebec Canada maybe ur a genius and i am a pretentious but life is life we must assume our deficiencies. Tx again and bye
Thanks for making the video. My son like it, specially for the trap. He is a fan of fianchetto.
great game, great lesson, thanks
