Well Jesse, looks as though you got that one right.
Carlsen is no joke. This kid is gonna be the next champion and i see him holding that title for many many years. The kid is a genious. Can you imagine the outcome of a Carlsen vs. Fisher game?
I like Carlsen's style of play and look forward to reviewing more of his games. BK
It is great for the novice to begin to see why Carlsen is so strong!
Very instructive, thank you.
I don't understand your analysis at 33:26 where you say that after 1...Nxe3, that 2.Qxe3 lets black off the hook with 2...Nc2. Here is what I don't understand, since white has a knight on d4, wouldn't a recapture with that knight essentially be a win of material, 3.Nxc2, since to recapture with the rook would leave white with the option of Ra8+, picking up the rook on h8? Just thought I'd point that out so you can iron out the video.
Nice video, thank you very much! To make a suggestion, I felt as other have there was a little too much of going into previous games.
Yes reviewing precedents is important, but ultimately it is the ideas of the present game that are most relevant. Since this is a lecture series on Carlsen it would make me happy to see the focus be his thought process in the present game. The appeal of chess is not as a subtractive process for your audience. At the highest level it is, in many respects. I.e. certain moves WILL lead to a draw, but here it is not so nescessary.
Going into a 14 ply line of a previous game that ended in a in the middlegame, doesn't mean that that line will always go into a draw anyway. Besides, Carlsen could probably win it then anyway :)
The video is very instructive, so I hope my suggestions are well received.
i want more
You shouldn't use so many off-track games. Focus on the main line and only use one or two.
blow ur nose and do something about ur saliva pls
Carlsen v. "Roger Bob"
Excellent matrial. Thank you. Takes an awful lot of browser refreshes to get it to play but well worth the patience spent when it does...
I was several year looking for a site like this is amasing, thank you.
I enjoyed it! I am glad someone finally started looking at Carlsen's games.
couldnt get the video from the main page but i could from FM Liu's video page
Very interesting this video. Thx.
great video, very thorough, quality sound and interesting theme
I liked this game. It had a good mix of pawn structure and piece play. It's nice to get some insight into positive play with doubled pawns.
