    I will create a blog page here on chess.com examining in depth recent Esserman and other author recommendations and see how we can use "old theory" (Smith-Evans) to help us know what to do.  Black is never very worried.  It's just a matter of seeing the best play and understanding it.

    I vote for more videos from Mark.  His dry humor ("the most amusing is Ke2, then we win the queen.  That would be fun,") and deliberate pace are perfectly juxtaposed to Danny's crazy and frenetic (though just as valued) lessons.

    Imterribleraelly, your Daddy should make you write your interminable rant out on a dry erase board one-hundred times, wash your keyboard out with soap, and put you to bed with no dessert.

    Maybe stop crying and being a leech off the rest of us who pay the upkeep of this wonderful playground in which you seem to enjoy too many free privileges already. The staff here needs to be paid... get over it.
