    @lallino: At 12:59 Black takes the rook on a1 with a check, therefore White cannot give a check himself and has to take the queen first.

    Nice video. The only thing not clear to me is why at 12:59'' wouldn't white do cheque on b8 before taking the queen. This way he would not lose the rook. Miseed opportunity or did I miss something?

    @Hendr1x: I think the reason that Black should not take the pawn on e4 after White moved d3-d4 is that White has a nice check on e6 with the queen. Black can only answer Rd7 and then White already has choices on how to continue, e.g. with d5, locking the Black queen away from the queen side or simply Qxf6 and a second pawn will fall.

    I agree with fagenbecker - I've spent way more on books and don't use them nearly as much.

    Haegemon,  I understand your complaints, but over a year's time it's MORE than worth it.  If you use the site to all of its capacity once you're a member you will indubitably become much stronger.  They're not being rude... it's a matter of quality and the demand for it.   Good luck!

    I like these "how to improve your thought process" videos.  They are rather abstract but I think they provide a good plan in reflecting on your weaknesses and then improving them.  Thanks!
