    on 7: 56, why were you not even considering defending with Q to c2?

    Nice I picked the crappy move Bd5 for black ... I learned a lot from this lesson.

    Lovin these videos!

    Any reason why the idea of the bishop sac on h7 wasn't discussed?  Is it too weak of an idea (e.g., instead of Rc1, maybe e5 to open up sac on h7)?  e5 is eventually played anyway seems like a valid idea?

     

    Anyone?

    Where is the first one of this series?  It doesn't come up in the search and I can't find it.  I can only find parts II and III.

    TheBone if you mean after white has castled, and the black queen is on e7 and black king on e8, then the answer is: Qxe4 Re1 and black loses the queen because of the position of his king and queen.

    When the white bishop takes the black pawn on e4, why doesn't the black queen take the un-defended bishop?

    hi Eric, the white bishop on b1 defends the c2 square. so if Nc2+ white plays Bxc2.

    At 15:55 in the video, why wouldn't black move his knight to c2, and take the rook?

    I'm sure there's a great reason. I'm a real novice. :-)

    Thanks.

    well d5 on that move allows white to just push ahead with e5, right? thus white keeps their nice space advantage, pawns on dark squares with a light squared bishop. black doesn't seem to have any good way to challenge white's center there.

    I was also thinking d5 was best for black at the point when he mistakenly played Nd5. I trust your claim that it's not a problem for white but I'd love to hear more about why in a video or even just a few key lines here in the comments. Love your lessons!

    i have *so* many mics, finity :-D

    there was some issue with the audio on this recording, but you'll note that part 1 which i did 1 minute before this doesn't have the issue. i think it may have had to do with the internet connection decreasing the quality of the skype call.
