    Eureka!! I've been struggling with the relationship between tactics and strategy--to me there has always seemed to be a chasm between them. Your video has suddenly made it crystal clear to me! Thank you Danny!!!!

    Honestly the best video ive seen in a while. It has very applicable lessons to begginners as well as to more advanced players. I love how you discuss the proper thought processes and mindsets in order to become a great strategic player, as opposed to simply discussing the mistakes members made.

    This made me realize why grandmasters are so stubborn, because they look for dynamic ways to achieve goals instead of just changing thier goals like weaker players.

    Great stuff! I like that you discussed a well played game in this video as well, its lessons apply to nearly all players

    Thanks for the video! I'll probably have to look over it at least once more since I'm a beginner, but the bishop remaining in the pawn chain idea will definitely stick! As well as the not-so-good a3 in certain situations. It's funny because those two points were kind of like "oh I don't want to get off into a tangent, but...", yet those were the ones that stood out most to me. Thanks again!

    Tx for the fast answer!True i am biased here cause this is the way i  play this position for white sry about that Laughing.

    after 12...b4 the position is not that clear for white so the line with Rc1 is indeed not totally convincing somehow white is slightly better but not more than that so overall nothing to be too optimistic. The line i found is 12...b4 13.Na4 Rc8 14.Qe2 c5 15.Ba6 Bxa6 16.Qxa6 with a tiny plus for white due to loose Qs for black but it is far from winning since anyway Black was able to play c5 with decent play.

     

    Right by the video u achieve the objective to give a great overall overview of the opening theory and the structure with his  strategy and tactics and this more important than the verdict of that line for either side.Every comments u made was critical and useful! Tx for doing so!

    I learned so much from this video, awesome Member Analysis Danny!!

    The 2 points that hit home for me were about keeping the LSB inside the pawn chain - I knew that was theory but I didn't know WHY Smile

    The second was about finding the right time to execute a pawn break or strategic idea and how it can be a great move to play "now" but next move it's a mistake... so many of my computer analysed games that have heaps of mistakes in them are due to me playing "THE move" a move too late, hence giving my opponent chance to either equalize or capaitalize...

    This video has made me think a lot about my own calculations and calculative skills... a lesson like this is easily worth the diamond membership alone (!!) Cool
