    I enjoy most videos on chess.com, but this one was a waste of my time and it certainly has a misleading title.

    Weak video, bad title, mostly random ramblings of a strong player. Not a good use of ones time. Playing well is one skill, while teaching effectiely is another skill.

    The only good take away is practice calculating tough postion, do not just use a computer as to get the right answer.

    Why is this a great video? (He does have great videos though!) All  he said was don't use a computer-calculate yourself.That should not take 20 minutes. The title is misleading. How about taking a won position in  a GM game(that the amateur doesn't understand why it is over..)and play against Fritz to try to win. This could improve your technique and understanding. How about playing won endgames against the computer at the highest level to confirm that you know what you are doing to the point that a GM could not beat you in that position.

    Great video. It is admittedly very tempting to use the computer for any mildly difficult position.

    Great video.  Thanks.  Basically saying don't use the computer to be your brain's crutch.  The way to improve your chess is to work through (as best you can) your own analysis and use the computer the check your answers.

    Interesting video, thanks for posting it. I look forward to the subsequent ones. I hope that you will include more information about how to properly use a computer to help you, in addition to information about how relying on a computer can be a hinderance.

    I have to say that I don't see exaclty how this is about using a computer.  Other than mentioning a computer's capability in certain positions, it's really just about a wild position.  I disagree that the computer "doesn't really help you" in complicated positions.  Definitely, humans should try to work out the answers, but why isn't it helpful to have the computer show you EXACTLY how to play the position?  It would certainly help you understand all the tactics.

    This is the first of a three-part lesson. He started off by giving a couple examples of where using a computer won't help you, but there are examples of when it does help in the next parts.

    "Very interesting discussion of intuition vs calculation, although there's not much here about how a computer can help. I suppose the message (which I've also heard elsewhere) is to do your own analysis first and then get the computer to check it, rather than having the computer do it for you."

    I felt the same way. There was very little practical advice here on when and how to use a computer as an analysis partner.

    As an example of what I was hoping for, I have learned how to compare the lines the computer presents to look for commonality of moves among them. If x...Nd4 occurs in multiple lines of the computer's analysis, then one can consider x...Nd4 an "idea" or "theme" in the position, and look at what that move does in order to better understand the position.

    I didn't know that even good player had difficult to find the solution to these sorts of end games. Thank you, very interesting I want forget it, the computer is very strong on this sort of position, but it can't help us to learn. I would never think so.

    (Mast be one of the way to catch a cheater, well probable chess.com knows it already)
