Shlosmem makes a very good point. Black's major mistake was Qc7, but I also think that cxd was better than exd for white because of the open file which would have been controled by white.
I play 1.Nf3 and I can't wait to try out c3 vs c5. Thanks for the game and keep up the good work. BK
Interesting game to watch, Charles. You seem to be so calm and confident while playing. I wish my thought process would be as clear as yours. How do you do that? (Okay, okay. I know. The road to carnegie hall...)
Are you playing on Chess.com or the ICC? you picked up a 2295 in no time at all
wow this vid is way to slow, you need to talk more, its like watching paint dry.
it seems u doze off
Good lecture, thanks
Black should have castles during the game. Thanks for the video.
Another cool video!!
I just think these Live Sessions; One Move at a time videos, are a great help for me, watching you trying to control certain parts of the chess board, keep these videos coming one a day I would like, but I know it's a not possible, I just love them thank you Charles great stuff.
great video, keep it up. i really enjoy your live commentaries, even if you're just beating up a weaker player and isn't as necessarily "instructive".
Great video as always, thx Charles.
You didn't mention it, but the black major mistake was Qc7 (punished by whith qf3!)Instead black can simply play d5 and I think the situation is equal.
I agree that these live sessions are great learning experiences, and are my favorites of all the videos. Please keep them coming!! I especially appreciated the complete postmortem -- keep doing these. During the live game, some of the ideas that you discuss go by too quickly for me, but then as you go over them later, especially when you show the moves on the board, it becomes much clearer. GREAT JOB CHARLES !! MORE !!!
After g6 instead of e6 how good is dc5?
I think Nxe7 was bad.
Qg4 Nxg2 the knight is trapped. So instead of Qxg7 simple Be4 seems to win.
G3 seemed pretty strong instead of Nf6
Good and intructive game ! Thanks !
Again, I deeply thank you Charles for the energy and even risk taking that you inject into this last lecture and they are becoming more silently contemplative on your part and without running into time pressure. Your added calculation time during the game leads to more profound and sound lines that you lead into allowing you to explain in depth at the end rather than during the game as in the past. Not as nail biting,but a nore rewarding lecture for me. Keep them coming Charles.I further noticed in this game that your opponent put up a poor challenge because of his poor time management.
I also learn so much from these. You get to see how a master thinks! Thanks a lot for your time.
Thanks! Nice! Honestly, I learn more from these live session videos than I do from all the other videos. Perfect explantions! Please produce them more frequently.

Charles picked up chess in middle school after his mother bought him what was then Chessmaster 7000. The one and only chess club in town was in an establishment previously owned by his father so needless to say he felt right at home. Locally, he excelled at the scholastic level going on to become Florida's K-12 Champion and Denker representative. He currently attends College where he plays Board two for one of our coutry's top chess teams.
