    Roman your quotes are priceless, we could write a book:" what is that move, I tried, I tried to understand, and than I gave up" lol (20:50)

    I believe Roman analyzes games that members send him. So I think they know they will receive an unvarnished critique of their performance. Roman is passionate about chess and wants to see the game played well. I admire that.

    Fun analysis! And if you ever play me, there is more than a slight chance that I'll be intoxicated!  Wink

    "When there's a strange move, it's always possible that the opponent is intoxicated" - very interesting observation

    I can't understand why someone trying to learn from an expert would complain about the expert's sharp comments.  Try learning anything on any subject from a trainer who cares so little about the subject matter or the trainee's progress as to not severely criticize poor performance.

    Saw the comments below and I did not see anything insulting that Roman did in his presentation. In fact the chess lesson in this video is very useful for most of us ordinary players here .. we go with some sacrifice at times thinking that things will pan out in our favour down the track. So often we miss the defensive moves and lose pieces for nothing really. So Roman sends home a very valid message .. "do not sacrifice and start attacking without seeing the end of it". It is much much easier to come up with defensive moves (as one has to save themselves in finite ways) as opposed to coming up with masterful attacks that are foolproof. Please do not strike at Roman guys, his English may not be all that good, but his lessons are valuable.

    I looked him up on the FIDE rating list. He is ranked 488th all time. That means that there are not 500 chess players that walked the earth better then him. 

    I think that alone buys him plenty of slack. That and the fact that he is hilarious.
