Last position doesnt a7 win straight away?
Good teacher. Appreciate the clarity and energy.
22:50, 26:40,29:00:) great video
@yenos. whoa bro, he's brilliant, your a patzer, no ones making you watch this.
@ 15:15 can't black go Ng3+?
If fxg3, then Rxh2+, Kxh2, Qh5#
If Kg1, then Qxd3! nets a free piece because if white takes the queen with anything, then Bxf2#
Its not as good as the continuation, so......
Holy Cow this guy rambles and rambles and rambles and rambles and rambles about nothing...good information when he is actually teaching but beside that he will make you want to pull out all your hair.

Oh I certainly enjoyed it! Thanks for the response. I think I made that comment amid a Tactics Training bender. You know how us tactics trainers love our alternate solutions. It's the "omg! This problem is outrageous... blah... blah... blah..." guy vs. the "These tactics aren't about achieving a score. They are about gaining a deeper understanding of the subtle nuances in chess" guy. Although I refrain from participating in such discussions, I find them rather entertaining. Who knows, that might even make a good video series.
@yoeyyutch -- No point in arguing... It's all winning, isn't it? Not the point of the video
Thanks to all who enjoyed it!
Ok so I see how the move of e5 is obviously a superstar move with bad intentions. However I also think h5 is a strong contender because if gxh5 then Rh5+ providing a decisive discovered attack on black's queen. Plus as a value added bonus feature, even if black doesn't take the bait and capture the pawn, we may still be able to take advantage of e5 on the next move. Of course black now has an in between move. I'm wondering what black could do to handle both the threat of e5 and the h pawn looking to tear a hole in black's defense. Call me squirrelmaster but I think it is an interesting situation that's worth a look.
"its a you problem, not a me problem" is one of my favorite Daniel lines. I'm making T-shirts and bumper sticker ASAP. I love Daniel's lessons!
Good video lesson,
its annoying that you say "its a you problem, not a me problem" in every video you make though, just be positive man! :P
check-a-lina la schlamba...LOL
So good it was borderline discouraging. lol
A knife in your gut..and the game is over, chicken butt! ROFL!!!
