    Nice video! I have one question although: 

    Around 12:48, what speaks against f4 and afterwards f5? I do not see where the knight would go

    Qf8 Rf6, and black won't be able to support the knight on h6, but again, if it moves, Rxf7 is killer.

    dpruess with the kings gambit when we played Qh5 attacking the knight why not black to play Qf8?

    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

    Right. And also a pseudo translation of "Yves" which is my first name. :-)

    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!
