Great Video! Having the will to win is IMO about the single most important thing in chess, especially for lower rated players.
Thanks for the videos
Excelent series...really went to my heart....followed your advice and the following game was the result...never mind my modest rating, for me it was a great victory for I thought was completely lost from the opening...for I won my 1st live tourney here...
Very much enjoy your lectures. Keep em' coming Alex!
Thank you, excellent video and great advise.
very intersting lesson
Such great games, such great advice! Motivating and inspiring
Good one mate .
Talk about soft skills in chess - This is one lecture you got to hear. Great words of wisdom from a young-ish looking GM. Thanks !!
Is it true you drew or lost to Ray Robson
Great series! keep up the good work.
Tx Alex like in life we just to have faith and fight and we'll be right!!
Excellent video- very interesting aspects and games-thank you!
Your like the ultimate chess psychologist! It's sort of like a Seinfeld episode each time I watch these videos! Very very interesting ... dymanic factors ... don't give up! Thank you for showing us the way! This is sort of the "untold story" behind GM chess! Alex your honesty and transparency is truly appreciated!
thanks 4 motivation.
Excellent advice! Thank you so much. This is the kind of stuff I need to improve my game, more than learning theory. Great practical examples against players of different ratings.
