On Saturday July 25, 2015 I watched this video and enjoyed it. Thank you!
h4-h5-h6 idea doesn't work due to Qc8-Qe6 trying to trade the queens.
YOUR GAMES ARE SO HELPFULL
thanks elliot again. Another excellent video, you are a natural teacher entertaining interesting and educational! Please continue with them
both parts really good you explain the games very well and it is nice you show different ways the game could be played thus answering a lot of questions.
Really good stuff. Great help. I especially appreciate your showing the different ways to end the game. One can sure store up end of game checkmates.
Love your work. Thank you and please keep the vids coming.
thanks nablaodel for the reply...was it really that obvious??? :-S
Thanks Elliot for another great video...can someone explain to me why you can't play Bxf6 after f6?
Hi, just to split hairs: Scheveningen is a city in the Netherlands, therefore not in Scandinavia. Named after the 1923 tournament held there, I believe.
Great study for my game as black.
Is it really matters a lot whether we have our N on d5 or not ?
& is it good for white only or for both side ?if it is good for only white then which square is good for black, e5 ? & if black want to win this game which thing he should focus on as white did on d5 ?
& I must say both videos are very important.
Very instructive , thanks

Did you know that establishing a Knight on d5 guarantees your chess success? At least that's what some of our predecessors believed. As explained in "immortal" fashion today by FM Liu, a strong Knight can lead to dominance of the entire board. Watch as Smyslov's kingside attack practically develops itself after gripping the center with the d5-beast! Then Smyslov's air-tight technique kicked in, and that was all she wrote...
