    I like your style.  I am new to the King's gambit and having got smashed as black by it at chess club have started to play it as white, although without much success!  Hopefully this series will help.  Keep up the good work. Love your videos.

    ah! yeah now i remember which comment you must be refering to. in fact, these videos are not incomplete in any such way; they were more a "taste" of what i did in that course, as opposed to something that you needed the course to then understand.

    I was just referring to the comment you made (in one of the videos in this series- I think it was this one) about the principles being contained in the chess.com university course and the application of those principles being the content of these videos.  It made me worry that these videos would seem incomplete.  I'm happy to say that was not true though; the videos don't actually feel like they are missing anything.  Thanks again David.

    you mean-- the title might lead someone to expect they are going to learn what the principles of opening play are from the videos?

    i'm not sure how better to title them though. there are videos that teach you stuff, but we also need videos that teach you how to apply stuff! and the titles can only be so long.

    glad you liked the videos :-)

    Great series!  Despite what I think may have been a mistake in presenting these videos as at least partially an advertisement for something else (although maybe just phrasing it differently may have solved this problem- pointing out what isn't included, the principles themselves, just left me worried that the videos would be lacking something), they are one of the most instructive series I've seen yet, especially for beginners.  Thanks David.

    but you don't effectively save your bishop if black captures it on f7. you may be able to get some attack against the king, but it's a piece sacrifice, not saving the piece.

    I am having trouble reading due to eye issues, but instead of d4? it seems like either Bxc6 or Qc3 gives White a fine game due to the double attack, much better than the "text" moves.

    zdig, i'm not 100% sure in which position you mean. perhaps you mean in the line with O-O instead of d4 and then g5 by black. there, yes, Qc3 is a viable move to win back white's pawn. i think that it may be about as good as the Nc3 variation i gave where white does not take their pawn back, but does continue developing all their pieces.

    Was Qc3 playable after black plays g5?

    This is perhaps the fourth time I've viewed this video and I still gain something new from it. Thanks David.
