Watching these pawn structure videos basically opened up a whole new area on the chessboard for me. It's like I was blind, and now I see, and chess it 10x more fun because of it. Awesome.
enjoyed the lesson, his humor and explanation of the problems, kept my attension . ( us "Old Guezzers" )have a short attension span they say. :-) I plan on follow this instructor.
Thanks Square and others!
Guys, if you haven't subscribed to our YouTube Channel and aren't following Squarology... I honestly have nothing to say to you... ever again!
That was awesome. Vintage Danny right there.
what about Nxg6...hxg6...Bxe6...fxe6...Qxe6+ isnt good for white or not ???
I had recently asked my chess instructor to give us some info on IQP,which he did.I must say though,this first video by Danny has already answered a lot more questions than I have anticipated about the subject.Great video.Can't wait to watch all 10+ of them!
Genious pathway between ultra opening geeking and intuitive play, not neglecting any :) sweet. Right down my alley! great way to knit my little comfy opening repitoire together. Yummy.
Danny is the man!
