Instructive :) Thank you, IM Rensch! :)
men thanx your thebest nice video wow
Thank you Danny!
after Qe1 Nxd4 Bxd4 e5 why its a "must" for white to play fe ? Isnt Be3 better ?
Nice job on your research on this game!
"Bf6! exclamaviatch, in-your-face, camal-cake!" classic
I enjoyed the positional explanations from white's perspective it helped me understand pretty much everything that was going on in the position. I'm glad I decided to re-watch this series - new ideas to be tried and tested...
A quality lecture for sure you always deliver the goods Danny, not only is the content enjoyable and instructive, even helping my own game, but your enthusiasm is infectious you're a great teacher - if they had titles for teaching I'm sure you'd be a UM - ULTRA-GrandMaster!! (1 up from super-GM (maybe!?))
great teacher; lots of things learned from patterns
Thanks all! I really enjoyed finding the repeating pattern between a classic game (like the Smyslov one from the video before) and a modern attack!!!
This series was amazing. You added an opening to my repetoir! Thank you VERY much.
You prob meant Nxd3 cxd3 and only then exf4.
Good stuff! I always like your lectures as they are indeed awesome! I looked in the mirror and didn't see someone real smart - I just saw a 1500-1600 player LOL! When I look in the mirror and maybe see a National Master I'll be happy! Who knows, if I keep watching your lectures and playing and studying up a lot, it might just happen...
Love the pacing of your vids, Daniel. After playing chess for a couple months here, I feel like I'm about to take my game to the next level (1600s+) with these ideas! Formulating an attack plan and putting pieces on the right squares to prepare properly, making small moves to improve my position before the attack should really help. I like this series. I heard you mention something on the live broadcasts about a massive learning project you and Pruess were releasing to the site. When's that coming out?
Nice job and what a great series this has been! Thanks!
awesome video as always. Keep up the good work!

In the third installment of the Scheveningen structure we witness an amazing, well coordinated attack that holds striking similarities to a previous game within this series. Take away the importance of pattern recognition from this video! Whether it be recognizing patterns within a structure, or patterns of attacking formations, this game has it all! The Nd4-f3, Bd4 and eventual threats of both e5 and g5 are on display today...
Players: Sokolov, A.
vs. Van Wely, L.
Sicilian Defense: Scheveningen Variation, Modern Variation (B83)
