Does anyone know what happened to part III? :)
I have a book on QGD that didn't even touch on castling queen-side.I appreciate the coverage.Thanks.
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.
thank you very much, I finally find the way to play agains pawn minority attack!
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 withthe 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.
TheJoeFish, do u have a link for the kasparov video?
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.
by GM Sam Shankland
Sam continues his series on the Queen's Gambit with a more "classical" approach. He now covers the ins-and-outs of the main line QGD, the Minority Attack, the Tartakower, and other Friends. Although none of the variations are taken too deeply, some very useful advice as far as move orders, piece placement(s), and general planning is offered. Mapping out your repertoire with IM Shankland couldn't be easier!

Sam learned chess at age 11 from the Berkeley Chess School program.

At 20, he has already played in several U.S. Championships, placing 3rd in 2011.
