    Sorry Sam,

    Your very strong and fast spoken American accented is hardly comprehensible to international learners! Even though I'm using English professionally in an office where there are mainly Australian colleagues working and other native English speaking clients phoning in every minute, I can hardly get what you say. Please consider the fact that you're speaking to an international audience, so speak CLEARLY and just a bit SLOWLY. It would be great if you could consider this.

    bye

    I think it would be better for me, maybe for some others as well?, in order to understand the openings better to  teach them in a progressive way, beginning with
    the first historic idea in the opening in question, and then going up, showing and explaining how the ideas in that opening were evolving with time until
    getting in the modern concepts of such opening. I think if a opening is presented staring with simple basic principles and expanding to more complex ones it will help a lot to understand how and why some moves are made.

    It was a chessbase video he put out about...3 years ago I think?  I saw it was available for 20 dollars a while back.

    I've liked this series, but this particular video really didn't seem nearly as good.  It was obvious Sam finds these positions boring and didn't put any time into it. 

    I just recently watched Kasparovs video on the qgd.  It was of course a much longer production with nearly the same amount of time devoted to this entire video to the Lasker or Tartakover alone.   However, it's obvious listening to Kasparov that there are many, many subleties in these lines that were glossed over by Sam with just one variation.

    I really felt that in some of the previous videos about the slav I leared a lot about how to play as white because he believes in the positions as black.  Honestly, if we're just going to skim the openings in this one because they're not liked, why not skip them?  A longer series on the slav would have been interesting, with maybe someone else doing the classical lines later.
