    Charles your delivery is so cool. Nice quote, it even means something to a beginner like me.

    Bxf2 is a mistake. More precise is simply Rce8 ejecting the Knight from e4 and from defending f2. Play may be as follows...Ne4...Rce8; g3...Rxe4 (unavoidable for White); Rbe2...Qxg3+; Kh1...Rxd4; Rf1...Rd3 etc...with Queens coming off shortly and Black with a huge winning position. Great Vid! I like the live 15 min game vids very much....make more please!!!

    lower rated stated in vid, but description states higher?

    Hello, i appreciate the video, but my guess is his opponent is rated somewhere between 900-1100.

    why does it say your paired against a stronger player, but you said he is much weaker...

    Your live game videos are the very best.  Perhaps because you just think out loud.

    A nice video and a pretty simple instructional game.  I think I need to watch it once more to get exactly all that white did wrong.  I am at least closer to understanding and not playing like that, though it'll take a while yet to get all the way there Foot in mouth

    Just love your videos Charles, Keep them coming,  I have started playing that system that you play, but of course not like you can you tell me, is it the Slav or is it The "Improved Chebanenko" please tell me!!

    I know you call it a universal defense for black

    Good positional game

    Why does the text say his opponent is stronger? Charles says at the beginning of the video his opponent is rated "significantly lower" than he is ...

    Another good live session though.

    i would play Nc3 if goes on and trade his nice black squared bishop will give me one extra time since hi spend two moves to eat a horse that has move once and it will be no damage to my pawn structure ... and then go on Nf3.... Bb5 ...Qe2 etc ..when castle queen side will be the perfect option ,because of the pair of bishops
