The everything you must know series has greatly improved my game I, struggled to beat the computer on the chess game on my phone for weeks , after watching these videos i have already beaten the computer a couple of times
Favorite quote from this video: "Chess is not a game that can be broken down into black and white. . ." around 7:00 Lol
These 5 videos taught me chess beyond merely how the pieces move. I'm hooked.
thank you Daniel, very well distilled down to the essential and most important principles...most helpful
Very well done, good job!
The Rensch video series is extremely helpful in quickly advancing your skills.
What's the outcome/rules of winning on time playing Standard Chess, does one not receive any points ? If so, what a waste of time and concentration for the winner, if your opponent decides not to bother moving, especially if/when his/herremaining position is poor ?
Good stuff!! Thanks for putting it together!
