What a boy
"everything is hanging, but nothing can be taken."-the beauty of chess
Nice one ..Just have to remember this game..nice one ...I am just practicin on tactics now ..but mostly ..these mates are major ...to see this video ..after practicing tactics ..is a wonderful treat and of good use ..hey guys please remember this game and GM lectures ....worth watching many times ..:)
I almost stood and cheered at multiple points throughout this video...
Indeed, I also find Rubinstein extremely instructive. Once that I finished the series realized that I could have made some more dozens...
As for the compliment, must appreciated! Thank you!
I would love to see as many games as possible of Rubinstein's analyzed by Dejan. For most of us in the 1600-1800 range, in my view Rubinstein's games present the clearest examples of solid chess fundamentals. Especially so when so well analyzed by Dejan. Keep 'em coming.
Great game, great lesson! Thanks for sharing it with us! I'm looking forward to Parts 2 & 3 on the immortal Polish GM!
The Rubinstein's immortal game! One of the best game ever played! Thanks so much!
Terrific job. Well done. I was completely mesmerized by the whole game and your analysis.
great presentation of a great game. thanks
Very nice analysis!
Whoa! nice analysis ona great game Dejan!
wuhw23- then White has Qxg4
at 11:51, can't black play qg3?
What an impressive analysis. That game really showcases how tempo and position can outweigh material value, especially at that one point where black had like 3 or 4 pieces hanging on the way to mate.
A most remarkable game, indeed!
What a game!!
