    I watched it again after the first viewing two months ago. The pawn break by white with the follow-up move of the bishop was explained in great detail. Thank you.

    To Mischa:  post your thoughts on the article http://www.chess.com/article/view/thinking-your-way-to-chess-mastery-episode-3-the-hedgehog

     

    The answer is that ...g6 is well motivated, but exposes the dark squares in a hidden way at this exact moment.  That is why 16. e5! is so strong.  The exact move order is incredibly important with white's aggressive placement of the bishops. In most Hedgehogs, the move order is not so important and white doesn't have this kind of suprising tactical resource.  The resource is all about Be4, opposing the white bishops, to get to the dark squares.  Very advanced stuff here.

     

    To cryptic_cave:  For database, some people like ChessBase, and others like Chess Assistant.  I get the feeling they might be very close in capability.

    For chess engines, both the latest Fritz and the latest Rybka are world-class.

    Personally I run the latest ChessBase and the latest Rybka.   For content (PGN games)  I use TWIC (This Week in Chess) to get recent PGN free updates.  I subscribe to Chess Today (GM Baburin's newsletter) to get, every day, PGN files (annotated by GMs such as Golubev) and once a month Chess Today sends a big CBV file (Chess Base archive file) to subscribers.

    Lots of moves may have "logic" as claimed in this video, but where is the "logic" that black is lost after playing g6?  All his moves made sense and seemed pretty logical to me.  I sense a bit of "both ways" about this claim, or trying to have your cake and eat it.  Nice analysis and some good tactics, but that is what we get in these days of computers.
