I'm sorry i am kind of a beginner. Could someone explain to me why at 3:30 why he would have won cause of an unprotected bishop?
Excellent game :) But it actually leaves me in position of seeing how bad I am in chess
That was great, thanks
i like yu Ben
many thanks for the post. Brillant game
nice very nice
Really interesting and video from which we can learn easily. Thank you.
nice game and great lesson
Thank you, for a very enjoyable video
Had lot of fun watching this video, both the game and commentary are nice!
Very fun game!
Why not g5 after h4 if he doubles the pawn anyway? It is a GM, I would expect him to think further on
Ben Finegold! Thanks. :P :) I often lose my patience in tournaments with putting pressure because I sometimes miss seeing exchange possibilities and I sometimes get the smaller straw by accident and your video helps me as a reminder not to Overwork pieces to give exchanges more flexibility.

In his best game from one of his best tournaments ever, the witty GM Ben Finegold shows off a very pleasing attack on a 2700 player. "When your attack is so strong, your opponent's rating won't save him," Finegold says as he picks apart the Hedgehog formation with a series of double-exclam moves. Finegold's sacrifices work their way up the value ladder - first a pawn, then knight, then bishop, and finally a rook! He produces one of the gems of his long chess career.
