    Anyone know why this video isn't able to play? Or where a working link is located?

    Update: weird, after posting this comment it decided to start playing, not sure why...

    The Shirov–Shabalov Gambit line with 

    1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 e6 5. e3 Nbd7 6. Qc2 Bd6 7. g4 

    looks like quite an interesting idea. It reminds me of the Keres attack in the Scheveningen.

                      Sam its always enjoyable to watch your videos as we always get the feeling we"re on the cutting edge of whats going on presently in chess. Also love the pace and spontinuity of the presentation as it helps to see how different varitions are thought out with even some past games in mind. I never even heard of the Meran before so thanks for opening up a new door to consider. Thanks once again for these enthusiastic presentations as they are a tremendous help for those of us who are truly thirsting for more knowledge!!!

    Sam, I've been Enjoying this series, thanks, it's much appreciated! 

    I'd like some additional commentary (pros vs cons) on why white would not want to get his dark sqr'd B out (to say f4 or g5) before playing e3 and blocking it in?   

    I find that if I bring it out before playing e3, sometimes I feel like my drk B is out of play on the King side (and usually harassed by a N over there), and if I play e3 before bringing it out (blocking it in), it winds up becoming an issue of where to develop it to, or how to use it behind my pawns.

    Any guidance/suggestions on this would be helpful.
