    i was astonished by the 'new rule', e.g. my queen, upon capturing, say, the black rook, in its original, undisturbed position, she is freeze, held as prisoner, hence i lost a queen; can somebody explain why??

    Both parts one and two are explained in simple terms at a beginners level. Very much appreciated from the view point of a beginner. Thanks Mr. Andrews!

    Once again thank you for the lesson.  In return I will share with you my audio engineering lesson. never use your classroom audio for the videos. Use the classroom audio as a scratch or scetch since it is natural. overdub the audio track later using a podcasting kit for recording on your computer. that way you can control the audio quality, and it can be consistent in volume and tone. mid range with high end equalization is best with a small low end roll off. enjoy.

    After having suffered a stroke a few yers back, certain things were robbed from my memory.  Chess was one of those things.  I was told that I loved to play.  My cousin told me about Chess.com, however, I was intimidated.  Learning to use the compuiter again was hard enough.  I signed up and took the first two tutorials an hour ago. I'm ready to fall in love again with a passtime that gave me so much pleasure.  My neurologist thinks that this will be a great benefit to my on going recovery.  My thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement.  Wish me luck

    Thanks again for FM todd dndrews, I emphasize the following:

    1- We must not concede the right of castling  Except for reasonable cause

    2- We must be very careful of the knight movement, especially  Knight Fork

    3- We must be very careful when advancing pawn forward, because the pawn never back

    As with the first video in the series, very clear and understandable.  Thank you again.
