    Great series. David uses pacing and clear speech that is easy for beginners to understand. At the same time, important principles are taught, which can immediately improve games.

    I like 1...e6 and 1...Nf6 most to against 1.d4, just wait and see what's White does in next move and choose a flexible plan :)

    Yes, it was awesome. Very clear, logical explanation, good coverage of main variations - even though you did not mention my favourite Chigorin Defense will all these dangerous knights Smile. I am looking forward to seeing your original video (answers to 1.e4).

    Please continue in these high-quality general opening explanations.

    Thanks a lot

    I'm definately no beginner but I had to watch it as it was titled "1.d4" which is my own main weapon. I genuinely enjoyed watching this lecture for a few reasons... 1.d4 is king Wink, I'm not a fan of 1.e4 unless I know I'm gonna play a King's Gambit, and 1...Nf6!! (double-exclam lol Laughing) is THE best way to play for black!

    That was a really good recap for me of the basics of 1.d4 - you're a very good teacher David, awesome lecture Cool

    What about defenses to 1. c4, the English Opening?  I run into this fairly often.
