very instructive thanks!!
at 6:23 you say "i wanted to save my bishop." Then why not f4 instead?
thend nd3 no problem.
I thought nd3 is better because i undervalue bishops, but still...
and, amazingly, i found qf1 and b6!
but bb8-d6-c5 was what i would have missed. i may have thrown out b5 =)
nice video, GM Gregory Kaidanov.
There is an exciting line after 35...Rxf2 36.Rxf2 Rxg3 37.Rg2 Bc5! 38.Rxg3 d3+ 39.Ree3 Qxg3 40.Kh1 Qxh4+ 41.Qh2 Bxe3 42.Qxh4 Nxh4 43.Bxe3 e4 which seems forced.
very instructive videol. thank you.
exciting to watch and to listen to at the same time. Very educational and entertaining as well.
This is a outstanding display of tactics,and foresight.Black must have calculated three to five moves ahead,and with variations. Great! One to be studied. Thank you for your humility,and courage to show this lesson even though you lost. It is extremely enlightening.
Great game, great video! I feel like I improved by watching it, but since I am well below 2200... maybe I got worse! :)
Really enjoyed this one. Nice mix of strategy and tactics.
Big THANKS to GM Gregory Kaidanov for the very rare critical comments and good words for the brilliant moves of his opponent ,GM Eric Lobron. Great video...
Was a good game your opponent sure knows his stuff! I'm actually pretty pleased with myself because for the very first time watching a video lesson, I spotted the main tactical motifs before they were played - namely
the Ne3 move @ 5.10, the c5! allowing the queen check+fork on the rook @ 13.35 and the queen sac I spotted at exactly 16.53 :)
I know I'll never be a grandmaster but I like to think I am improving if I can spot these things. I would love to make CM one day though... I put a lot of my improvement down to these awesome video lectures that you and other GM's and IM's produce, definately worth my membership fee just for this!! :)
I loved this video. Thank you! Even though it is advanced, we beginners can pick up a lot, just by listening to your analysis. Look forward to your next video.
Nice video with lots of clear explanations....
Great lesson. Thank you for sharing.
Looking forward to your next video.
this was great especially mentioning John Watson's book and how it fits into modern chess theory ... this was a really nice game
by GM Gregory Kaidanov
In this highly interesting game review, GM Kaidanov displays one of his best... losses! After achieving a comfortable position out of the opening, he is outplayed by his opponent in creative, original fashion. Black shows that his feel for the position was much deeper than his opponent's by choosing aggressive, creative play that ultimately leads to a brilliant Queen Sacrifice. Enjoy!
