    I swear I saw the tactics puzzle Danny got wrong at 26:00 right away and I have a tactics rating to 2000+ to back it up.

    Thank you for sharing your experiences with TT, Danny.   It's encouraging for me as an advanced beginner in many ways--noting how quickly you spot and evaluate patterns and also how you also encounter some which stump you.

    Danny, very entertaining and helpful.  I just started Chess.com, so to see masters go through the thought process and sometimes getting it wrong makes me feel so much better. I will be looking at all your other videos.  Thanks.

    Another great video. I liked your comments about calculation, but I'm not yet at the point where I stop calculating "because I've reached a conclusion". I stop because I can't visualise the board - so my next stop? Your visualisation series!

    Thanks Danny

    Something I don't like about those tactics trainings is that you KNOW that there's always something going on. For example the Nf3 move that you play, you don't play it because you think it's the best move, you play it because you acknoledge that it's the only move possibly leading to a quick win. You wouldn't have played it in a game without seeing the whole line.

    The tactics trainer needs a percentage of problems, maybe only above 1800 let's say, for which there is actually no tactics involved. There is no tactics, and the move to play is a strategic one. Or you should be able to click the button "no tactics here tricky Danny" ! To teach real life chess.

    I think endgame puzzles are just harder. endgame positions are much more complex than most people realize (or perhaps want to realize). john nunn's books I rest my case.
