    That was great. It was like seeing an old friend again. I haven't played for 10 years; but I remember trying to instruct myself with a primitive radio shack computer. I made it play black and the French defense over and over and I think I lost 117 games in a row over a period of months. but finally I won one. The pawn position did stick with me! But it's an awful way to try to do anything. Your videos are worth the price of joining up all by themselves.

    Great video ... the guy you played NM Peter Graves ... ok Peter Graves brings to mind Mission Impossible http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mission:_Impossible  and this video shows that playing the French like that against GM Melik was Mission Impossible.

    I really enjoyed the ideas associated with pushing the h-pawn: it's probing for weaknesses and gaining space at the same time. Excellent idea! Great lecture!
