    Your phone sounds just like my phone. I left the room the same time you did to see who was calling. Around 25:50.

    PS Great video, btw! :D

    very glad you liked it Yifu! (which by the way means "clothes" in Mandarin)

     I was looking for great "opening" lectures till I've watched your serie. This is just what I was looking for! I am looking forward for the rest of it.

    Specifically your comments on the "magical" tactics part and how did you choose your examples. It was great.

    Sometimes I am desperate , when watching at GM videos. And just, from time to time, remembering us that "tactics do grow on Strategy", it reassures me a little bit. (hu .. I am not sure "reassuring" is the right word, but everybody understood me).

    Thank you mister Pruess.

    Thank you for teaching us how to think about weaknesses in helping us make judgements about development. Very useful!

    9:37 Uncastled king stuck in the center with queens on the board. Is it really a good position for Black?

    This was really a fantastic King's Gambit video masquerading as a development lesson!

    I think this series is going to turn into a modern classic. Although I have heard these concepts before, I never understood them. But the way you explain them both rigorously and by going back to basic building blocks means that I can relate them back to my own simplistic way of playing.

    Last week, I found myself ahead in development, did a pawn sac to open the position and then ended up with my opponent againt the ropes and checkmated him.

    How cool is that?

    You have made an old man very happy.

    Right, now for video number five!

    Thanks for these tutorials. They have taught me so much and I've already started to practice some of the ideas behind them with success!

    Thanks :)
