    These are advanced videos ! you may have to view them a few times?! This is my second time, going through the 10 part series. Great!

    simple 4 lines each of 2-3 moves, so that would be 8-12 moves, 16-24 half moves. bet it takes a while before you can do that in 30 seconds or less huh? unless you're houdini. (of course even to find these initial 4 lines you have to possess substantial positional knowledge. before you can think you have to learn how to see)

    I like the way you broke down seemingly complex calculations into digestable chunks that I was able to understand fully and I even found the solution on Ba3! early in the game sample! This has been a great series - I'm in the process of catching up on all my videos so I hope I get to see some more in this series! Thanks for sharing your knowledge Cool

    at 15:17 what about f2?

    if you analyse it, f2 is drawish because the f1 square is white colored and the rook can go there or guard it.

    What about at 6'40" two more lines: a4 and Bxf7+. Shouldn't they have been included to be looked at before Ba3?

    Great points on R vs B on open board with advanced pawns: B almost as strong as R; place R behind most advanced pawn. Also, R on f5 controlled e5 from B defense against advancing g-pawn. Good stuff.

    Sorry GM, but i have to agree with member 'elindauer's comment. The calculation here isn't a 'bush' variety type. Though quite instructive, this problem seems to fall into a very advanced and precise level---e.g. 'Precission Calculation', which, btw, would make a great series, indeed! Cool

    I don't think it's a browser issue; but it's true that the issue varies depending on the browser:

    - IE / Chrome: nothing is displayed (no video)

    - Firefox: the video is replaced by a black screen with no action button or anything

     

    Happy to run any log if that can help solve the issue, it's frustrating not to be able to watch any vid on chess.com.

    This time I disliked your video. After Rd5 e4?? you should have explained what should follow after Rd5 f2(!). It is not so easy to find Rd1 e4 Kc2 Lf4 Rf1 e3 Kd3 Kd7 Ke2 Rh1. It is won - but not so simple for most of your fans!

    So the idea is that we can make short "bush" calculations, and your example is a game where the main line requires at least a 10 move calculation full of subtle shots in order to know that the trapped b3 bishop will escape?!  I don't get it.

     

    Second example was better, but this wasn't your best work.  Still a fan though.

    I've never once had problems with videos on this site using Firefox (Windows 7). It's definitely a browser thing

    Same here. Cannot see any video; tried on IE9 and Chrome on 2 computers. Guys, how about going for YouTube?

    As of today I cannot see any of the videos(Chrome on an android tablet)

    The pages start with comments and the videos are missing.

    Edit: now I cannot see the videos even on my comp. Please fix it.

    What browser are you using, E-D-W? Melik?

    I hope this is a 100-part series
