    I have however I am particularly interested in lines similar to what you played because I don't often play a proper Blumenfeld (unless my opponent forces me to), I play the Benko move order with 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 b5 4. cxb5 a6 5. bxa6 e6 which can transpose into what you played if they take on e6 and fianchetto. Usually, especially in blitz and OTB this is more common than the mainline 6. Nc3

    I really like this sesson. I find myself in alot of the same sitiuations. Very informative and also taught me about the power of patience...  I find, when playing gambit lines, that i tend to be overly aggresive trying to compensate for the lost pawn(s). And when i like my setup i sometimes push pawns when they shouldnt be pushed. When you meantioned that you were thinking about moving the pawn to e5 and then you instead moved the rook to patiently wait for something to develope instead of trying to force the situation. Extremely instructive. Thank you!

    I guess this is a good example of space advantage since black was spreaded on 4 ranks and white on 3 for more than half of the game. Nice to see.

    I like your videos. They are very instuctional. My game has improved due to Chess.com and the videos you guys made. And your chess sight is alot better than the one I used to play on. Keep up the good work. I once beat my mother playing a different game-(a card game) and the next morning I found a note from her that said "I hate you!!!!" lol. I'm right there with you!!!!

    what can I say, a generous man who teaches his fellow chess.com brothers and does not hesitate about showing what in his mind but certainly cruel on the board leave the enemy no option to move... nice game!

    Danny, do you send these videos to your opponents afterwards?  I'm sure they'd be interested to see that the person they were playing was actually a titled player jabbering away to hoards of wife-avoiding chess junkies during the game.
