GOOD MOVE GM!!!!!
I might need to go over this again...
I like that
if the play arrow is to distracting maybe it is good practice for your focusing... thanks gm kaidanov very informative kotov vs pachmann would've been very different with h5 played
GoatsRUs- i totally agree with you ! when they say pause the video and think about it, that annoying arrow pops up!
Everyone keep posting: "We want to pause the video without the video play arrow covering the center of the board!".
I wish you could pause the video without the video play arrow covering the center of the board.
Thank you, thank you, thank you GM Gregory Kaidanov.
I had problems getting by the first one, which has errors in the analysis.
Great! it would be also fine for white to play gxf5.

Clear your head before this one, as GM Kaidanov fills your weekend with a video compilation jam-packed with examples of bishops against knights. The name of the game is pawn structure, and you'd better be focusing on your opponent's ideas as always. Kaidanov calls this the "Calculus of chess," but don't worry, there aren't any polynomial functions to be found!

GM Gregory Kaidanov
Considered one of "the" premier chess trainers in America for more than ten years, Chess.com is very proud to add Grandmaster Gregory Kaidanov to its list of prestigious Video Authors. Arguably one of the strongest GMs never to have won the US Championship, GM Kaidanov's list of accomplishments does however include first place finishes in many other major events, including first place at both the World Open and US Open in 1992. A certified FIDE Senior Trainer, his reputation as a chess coach precedes him internationally. Gregory currently resides in Lexington, Kentucky with his wife Valeria and their three children.
