    Mark, this video reflects great credit upon yourself and chess.com. Thank you for the tactical insights. Viewers who speak english as a second language may have some difficulty with your vocabulary, but you should take that as a compliment :) I think that so long as the viewer has at least a cursory understanding of english they will gain much from this. Thanks again!

    Great lecture on aggresive play.  I play white vs benko and the Nh7 move is a novel tactic if d6 not played.  Thanks for the insight.

    zezpwn44, i had the same thought. but if black retreats the knight, white's knight has already captured one pawn and goes on to take the rook on f8, winning an exchange as well and probably the game

    Interesting lecture. I was wondering--what's the difference between the Pirc Defence and the King's Indian Defence?

    mid way thru he takes with a rook instead of a knight and there is a combination that would have ended with mate.  Qe1#  I might be wrong but it looks easy.  you tell me.  Rxd5-Bxd5, Kxd5-Qxe5, Kxe7-Qe1#.    20:45 min into the video

    Why wouldn't black simply retreat the knight after the Nxh2? Isn't the white knight trapped?

    a6 in the second game was very very interesting, also the Ne4/Qb7 combo, very tricky!.   Hope I can start finding moves like these in my games.   Really enjoyed the lecture, thanks.

    Excellent advise: Under time pressure, placing your pieces around your opponent's king greatly increases your winning chances. Thanks, I'll have to remember this.
