    Great video. Helps narrow down the analysis process to just a single critical move in ones game. I had spent far too much time worrying about which variations to analyze in my game, so much so that it would become overwhelming.

    Thanks a lot.

    lol,  chess mentor has like 2 pages of just moving rooks and bishops back and forth... may seem like a waste of time to people who've played for a little while but teaches noobs tho.


    Like when people start learning a language... you should probobly listen and speak it first... its not so obviouse to people who try to read and write it.

    Why would you expect to learn something from a beginner video when your rating is 1559 on Standard Chess. For me this was okay. I didn't learn a lot but it can never hurt to go over some basic principles.

    hukes that is probably because you pay for a diamond membership - for those that don't pay, the video that we get is utterly useless, certainly not enough to tempt us to pay to see more!

    @happy_loser: Well, I learned from this video.

    Even complete beginners would learn nothing from this.

    WOW I can't imagine anyone needing this video, my 4 year old figured out what to do with the analyze button, even if it's aimed at Americans I still feel like you are babying people a bit too much and they are going to feel patronized, try this on the kids page?

    You did a good job with this video lesson. This lesson should give a beginner a good starting point. Thanks David

    Really, chess.com, to analyze my games, I should click through them?

    WOW, wouldn't occur to me in a thousand moons!

    As a beginner, I appreciate the time you invested into this instructional video!

    Very very basic... but definitely decent advice for beginners, I wish I was told all this a few years back! I'm looking forward to the intermediate/advanced level ones... I'm gonna watch the intermediate level one now Wink

    What a complete and utter waste of my time!

    Chess.com should point out to us when they are promoting these videos that unless we pay their ridiculous subscription fee, we will receive absolutely no instruction, we just have to endure a couple of minutes of some guy going "Blah, Blah, Blah. Blah, Blah...." while pieces fly around the board.

    Thanks for nothing.
