I enjoyed it, people complain about the opening talks but I find it interesting. I am a relatively new player and understand how of the tactics but its always good to further see the why.
loved it! thank you for all of the videos you share with us.
But if I hadn't made the first 6 minutes of this video "just talking and teaching you", what would you have to "not listen to and not learn from"?
skip to six minutes...
I can't play a video pls tell me how?
Is Good Video
Thanks! Looking forward to the next video :-)
First lesson, i'm going to blast your attention span with aimless observations! Then I'm going to bring up a list of obvious tactical themes and ramble on a little more! Then blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Brilliant final example.
What? Lots of talking and one list. How bad is that?
WOW, what a waste of time
awful waste of time
