@legopirate he actually has a mate in 1. Qa2#
at 8:29 what about bxh6
thank u mr pruess
Really like the idea of this kind of video. Very instructional.
Love how David suggests that gambits aren't real openings.
I like your videos better than any other author's videos except IM AceChess because you two are more interesting.
Sadly, GambitGareth lost on time. He had a mate in 3.
AWESOME!!! great game!
misses his first opportunity to hang a pawn HAHAHAHAHA
Good video. Thanks.
thank u so much chess.com
Good game! Keep them comming.
First hybrid was very good and picked up some pointers. This one was of only moderate interest. Easy win for white. Speaking for myself, nothing special or particularly instructive was going on. How about crafty French Defense or Caro-Kann with players at this level ?
I find the new format very engaging. Instead of watching in awe at one of the chess gods, I am learning how to avoid the same kind of mistakes I would make.
i like the concept behind IM David Pruess video here. it's interesting ... and instructive and fresh; it's sort of like a reality chess show.
Yeah I too could watch these type of videos all day, very good to hear the Master's thoughts over a lower-rated game than usual, I could do with that on my live games lol :)

In the second ever installment of this new "Member Analysis meets Live Sessions" video series we learn a little more about Mr. GambitGareth! IM David Pruess commentates this interesting Scotch Game that eventually turns into a simple "matter of technique". And fortunately, the technique does seem to come easily for Mr. Gareth, causing us to wonder if we should change the first part of his name?

IM David Pruess
At the age of twelve, David was lucky to be brought by his mother to a session of the Berkeley Chess School's Friday night kid's chess club, where he met NM Robert Haines, who showed him what chess was. Eighteen years later, he is still in love with the game. He has shared first in a few major tournaments, eg: American Open, North American Open, and Open Rohde (France), and played in several US Championships.
