    Elliot, I love the way you explain and analyze these games man. Simple and straightforward delivery.

    Thanks fo much for this great series. As a complete beginner these games give me much better understanding of the importance of thinking a few move ahead. 

    It's also full of tips which I didn't know :)

    Why doesn't white's bishop take Lasker's at a3? Forgive me if it's obvious, but I'm a beginner and can't figure that out for the life of me.

    I concur with previous comments. Great video and series. Give us a bit more time to pause on key moves.

    Also: These videos seem a bit short and it feels a bit cheesy to break them into multiple parts. I would prefer one game per video... but it isn't a big deal.

    I'm enjoying the series, please keep them coming.

    You are really good! All of a sudden you say, I'm gonna cut this up into multiple videos... Already? haha

    Well done,

    You do a great presentation.  I love "every move explained" videos and you do as good a job as anyone with a very clear and easy to understand style. May I make one suggestion?  I know you get in the flow of your presentation, but a couple of your "what do you guys think you'd do now" questions caught me with my hand off my mouse and you answered before I could pause.  OK, I'm old and slow, but if you could discipline yourself to always make a pause it would be great.  Maybe you could borrow the phrase "I can wait" as a reminder.  Thanks, and I really am just being very picky here.  Overall, great job!

    This is exactly the type of stuff why I prefer annotated video lessons over annotated games in books. The realtime explanations really clarify the concepts and the ideas why moves are played and why moves are bad. To me this approach does a whole lot more than scattering question marks/ exclamation marks and piling variation upon variation as I see in many books. Very nice video (including the first two in the series), clear explanation and well-paced. Looking forward to the second half of the match.
