    Another great chess.com video! It was very helpful, and did an excellent job of explaining the ideas behind the opening, not just the moves.

    excellent video for beginner - really explained positional structures! Great teacher- careful and deliberate.

    Instructive video for a basic understanding of the lines covered. How about further material on lines not covered such as the symmetrical variation and the lines where black plays Bb4

    Excellent opening series - I liked your Sicilian for beginners too. Had to view these many times to absorb info.

    The presentation is good but he goes too fast and most probably would confuse the heck out of any beginner. This teaching is better fitted for an intermidiate player, altnough as an intermediate, I feel he didn't slow down enough to teach the reason why white needs to have control of certain central squares. This is strictly my own opinion.

    first time trying the Ne2 and not Nf3 one and i won the first time i tried it, it was a great win, but a long game. I know i messed up in the later part of the game a bit but it was the win on D5 that got me a piece up on the dude. Thanks for this video :)

    Great video and explanations, FM Valeri!

    I can't believe I didn't find this video sooner! It's so old (in my opinion)!

    Excellent training tool.  There is always an advantage in adding another sense to a learning experience: in this case, the audio voiceover.  That gets the speech center of the brain working together with the visual/spacial half of the brain, too.  THIS ALONE is worth the premium membership.Cool
