    I like that video so much. I think I need a lot of time to spend to play like this way :)

    that guy was a master you played?  really he sucked he didn't develop his pieces and got way over extended and his position popped li ke a balloon full of air ... you hammered that guy ... it was great!  he was basically playing with only his queen and one minor piece ... and seemed to be fixated on trapping your bishop like a school kid. you schooled him big time!

    The buffer is getting lost, the video is struck often... Couldn't enjoy the lecture

    Nice recovery. I can only imagine how horrible your opponent must have felt after the game. Excellent analysis. Thx.

    i just watched this and im glad that he did not keep saying 'again' before nearly every sentence: anyway I actually really like this guys ability he has an unusual mind and I feel that he is one of those players who have a lot of secrets about chess that you could find by studying him. What I mean is that he knows chess and if he could present as well as some of the other guys like roman and daniel and melik on this site then he would be something really special.

    Thanks josh you do inspire me & the negative things that I say are designed in the hope that you read our comments and use them to adapt and evolve. You are a cool guy x.

    His opponent advanced to quickly. ignoring development is the lesson here.

    Fantastic job of grabbing the initiative Josh! The concept of the downward spiral

    after the loss of a "superior" position is an interesting one.
