    Very engaging commentaries from Ben ( then and now ) . Who would have thought you could "call an audible" when you are not at the line of scrimmage and before the game starts ( on a curb waiting for your ride to the game no less ) . Lastly Ben has coined his very own sign-off phrase ( "They can't take it away no matter.........") Not as profound as Walter Cronkite's " And thats the way it is.......... " but.......... I renewed my Diamond Membership month to month as I couldn't afford the lump sum, in no small part because of videos like these from Ben ( and Danny and the whole gang ) .....Keep it up people !

    O-O-O was a pretty obvious move. It was the follow up that was beautiful.

    Great video! And croungratiolations on your GM norm.

    instead of re4 why not ng5?

    At 14:50, instead of Rb5, why not Nxg5? 1. Nxg5 Kxg5 2. Rxe7 Rxe7 3. Rxe7 and white is ahead 2 pawns?

    i really love Finegolds jokes, you know when i first saw his scholastic videos i liked his jokes because it made me feel not having wasted my time with watching the marathon man. Now his jokes are just really funny. Also i like his style, the last games were not my cup of tea but i always like his style of presenting. When he once did an endgame video, he posted a video were i exactly would go wrong and i think there were just two choices anyway.

    I hope he didnt stop making videos here.

    great video.. what about knight takes g5 using the pinned bishop one more time would not have been much easier? jus curious... ya i got it... then if bishop is unpinned, we have two pieces to defend :)
