    I have watched this video over 10 times in the past year.  This is an excellent video.

    @ meffort would u rather trust a silicon box or a well known GM . I'm pretty sure Sam knows what he's doing

    Very complex lines but you made them quite easy to follow, a great end to the series!

    Opening orientation at it's best. Excellent series on a hyper-sharp modern line. Might consider to leave the Grunefeld occasionally.Smile

    Thanks!

    At the start of the video, after 7...b5 you instruct viewers that 8.Bd3 is what should be played next. However, according to the Let's check engines, Houdini 3 x64 depth 33 is recommending 8.Be2 here. I'm not saying 8.Bd3 is a mistake because it is obviously the mainmove, but from watching your electure I was left with the impression that viewers would think that it would actually be erroneous for them to consider to play 8.Be2

    At 8:17

    1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 e6 5.e3 Nbd7 6.Bd3 dxc4 7.Bxc4 b5 8.Bd3 Bd6 9.0–0 0–0 10.Qc2 Bb7 11.a3 a6 12.b4 a5 13.Rb1 axb4 14.axb4 Qe7 15.e4 e5 16.dxe5 Nxe5 17.Nxe5 Qxe5 18.g3 Rac8 19.Bf4 Qe6

    Rac8 is a total blunder.

    For future videos I strongly recomment the Slav.
