Korchnoi advised that when under a fierce attack, you should if possible continue with your own attacking plans, rather than being entirely defensive, and meanwhile use those plans to exchange off some of your opponent's important attacking pieces.
What was the advice by Korchnoi, can someone paraphrase for me, can't watch the video right now :)
Alex, Wish I was in MN with you. Pauls chess tour is in Northern Louisiana for now. I always enjoy your videos. Thanks for taking time to do such a great job of breaking down these games. You are rare, being able to play at the highest levels and also explain them so class players can understand. Awesome! Best, Paul Covington
it would be greatly appreciated if you would try to keep the volume of your voice at the same level. Sometimes u tend to fade out, as if u turned down the volume of your microphone.This is distracting, but not fatal to the general understanding. i still appreciate ur keen thoughts and commentary. Keep up the nice work!
best voice ever!
could it be after Qh3 Rg3 first and then Bg5 is a same thing?

Excellent analysis! Very instructive, just the right amount of detail. The lines you mentioned were interesting and relevant and you didn't waste time analyzing obvious continuations. In particular, the advice from Korchnoi regarding defense was greatly appreciated.
very very thanx for this video

GM Conrad Holt uses superior preparation and a bevy of tactical ideas to take out longtime top Cobra IM Jonathan Schroer. After passing up a quick repetition, the Destiny's top board finds a novelty with the pawn sac g4! He follows it up by pitching another pawn on the queenside, and before Black can catch up in development, all of White's pieces have swarmed the black king. Holt's play was nearly faultless.

GM Alex Yermolinsky
Since his arrival in the United States in 1989, Alex Yermolinsky has won numerous major swiss events including the World Open and U.S. Open multiple times. He was the U.S. Champion in 1993 and 1996. Alex cherishes his recollections of the glory days of the now aging, but underrated U.S. Olympic Team of the 1990's. Alex is the author of "The Road to Chess Improvement", his magnum opus that threatens to become the most sought after out of print chess book on EBay.
Other authors need not worry, Alex has left chess writing behind him. These days he's more interested in online chess media. His "What Every Russian Schoolboy Knows" instructional weekly show on the Internet Chess Club has a large following. Alex is hoping to further his online presence here on Chess.com.
