Great! Makes me eager to try using the concept(s).
Very nice video. I must admit, everything was new to me . Those principles really do give a rock solid foundation to work upon!
Wow--now I actually understand what I've been doing wrong for so many years! Thank you for the wonderfully informative vid!
nice video. thanks!
Thank you Daniel! It was very helpful..
many thanks ,Daniel !now, looking backwards seems like ...i have never played chess before! thank you,once more!
Great video, highly informative, not too complex, and not too long. Looking forward to applying these new tactics. Never understood the opening before! Many thanks!
I, along with newly organized classmates, will be watching this great video over the next few days. I have always felt "lost" during the last moves of an opening, not really sure or confident to make the right moves.
This video sure brings a new level of confidence and ease to puruse through the opening sequence, especially late in the opening where it was difficult for me to see a clear plan.
Nice video. Thanks for your efforts into doing this.
Very clear, systematic, and quick ... just like a brisk chess opening, gives a beginner mind the sense and flavour of actually doing it.
I say, nice move!
Nice and short video. Important tips for who doesn't have enough time to study all known oppenings.
