nice for a 2600
You should at least have inner peace within yourself...lolz
Great video as always, nice job Lenderman!
nniiccee learned tons from it cant wait to see the other parts
Thanks Alex for both of these videos...they both struck a cord with me and i learned a lot. Your nice easy presentation style made things very clear. I look forward to more of the same :)
Nice! I especially liked the Nb5! shotin the last game. I saw it because Alex had us pause, but otherwise I am not so sure. Great games!
Thanks! This was a great video. You put the hammer down on those guys and made it look easy but ...we all know the underlying issue ... don't get lazy and keep thinking!!!
Great video. thanks.
This video highlights the importance of understanding the dynamics of the opening since a basic move may cause a losing position. Thanks.
It was boring and pointless....
Did you install the Flash Player extension?
Nice video, at minute 24, if Black plays ...a5, then White can also play b4 with the idea of ...axb4 a5 and White wins a piece.
Give your variation dynasty3456. I suppose we are discussing the position at 20:38
As far as I can see, if Black saves his Nb2, he loses the Nf6.
Another excellent video from GM Lenderman. Quiescence errors will probably be the difference between 2k and 2400 players more often than at lower levels though, so this is aptly labeled Advanced. A 1500 player like myself tends to miss a solution trying to calculate deeply and getting tricky. A move might work in all moves but one, but if they find that one move it's a mistake! There is good advice in here nevertheless to look for intermizzo moves rather than auto-recapturing and constantly check for checks, captures, threats as the game progresses. Thanks!

His second installment is one of "personal experience" and triumph! GM Alex Lenderman reviews three of his own games, highlighting in each one exactly where his opponent committed a "Quiescence" error to lose the game. Alex stresses again the importance of looking at all moves, and not ever making "forced recaptures" before considering other possible better moves. Take notes and good luck!
