I really got alot out of this. Thanks!
Who was the intended audience? If you found this relevent to you, you were too strong to be watching it anyway, but people do like to fool themselves, don't they? When you get to the point that this video content is useful to you, you will have your GM coach helping you and being paid by chess.com, not paying it.
Very good and instructive, thank you.
Great instruction, Please slow down just a little in the future your speed of speaking. Thank You.
Thanks. This video has encouraged me to try out some new openings.
Great video! Thanks
thank you for the video
men I still have long way to go
very good instruction thank you.
Thanks for that really great stuff. Now I understand why my coach has me learning basic openings and we have just started going into sharper variations. I was wondering should the player also have a response to all types of openings from their opponent, e.g. when they play b4, or b3 or f4 etc. Also how many variations should you know and how deep?
Strange timing to come out with the second part, no? :)
Never mind, my brother showed me Bb7 stops that...
At 4:19, why would people play g5? Why not e5? Doesn't e5 win a pawn after Nd5 Nxd5 exd5 Qxd5?
Thank you for the instruction. I will study to make this work. Gillie
Thank you for the instruction. Man do I have to study!:-)
