    18:58. Where did all the arrows suddently come from?  Laughing

    Very good explanation of the most important variations, again focusing on the reasons why moves where played and how the other side tried to counter the ideas. Well done.

    Well organized, rich analysis for beginners/intermediates.  I also enjoyed the varied analysis at different points in the presentation.  

    Well done.  Lots to chew on.  I'll be back for more, thank you.

    at 8:03 why on earth not Nf3 first, instead of Bd3?!

    That way the white king will still be able to castle..

    I'm planning to use the french defense and learn more about it. Thanks for the introduction to it. There is clearly a great deal to learn about it.

    I'm not a beginner or a big fan of the French defence, but I like to pick up tips on how play against it anyway... so I decided to watch it and I think anyone who's rated under 1400 and likes the French defence will get a lot out of this video. Smile

    This video inspired me to create a tournament with the starting position 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 allowing black to go into the Winawer, MacCutcheon, or Classical Systems. (The Tarrasch will be for another tournament)

    Time control is 24 hrs per move. Vacation allowed.

    Ok everyone there's 50 places in each tournament so don't be shy jump on in.  Laughing

    I like your videos because they explain what each side is suppose to be playing for. At the beginner level this is esential. I can't remember all the lines of all variations, so when I understand the theme, its easier. Thanks. I have noticed that people who criticise usually do it on a level they feel they are qualified to do so, the way it was said, presented, bla bla, but not on the chess level because they aren't qualified. Otherwise they wouldn't be watching a beginner video. Anlamk, post a video and let me criticise it. Get real!
