    Wonderful video on the young Norwegien lord.  It would be great if you followed up with a video on the current world champion.

    What is so incredible about this game is not just Magnus's forceful tactical play; he managed to do all of this from a worse position! You'd think around move 25 it would be some textbook example of white developing an overwhelming initiative based on his space, yet the complete opposite happened instead :)

    I hate bait and switch sales tactics.  They cheapen the product, IMHO.  I wish Chess.com would cut this out.  Either offer a full video as compelling evidence, or don't.  Don't sucker me into wasting my time.

    I hope to see something like this game during the World Chess Championship Match. Maybe even two or three games like this!

    As always, great stuff from GM Kaidanov! Nuggets of practical advice coupled with an instructive game and clear explanations. Love it!

    "The key is to put your opponent in situations where he can make mistakes." I'm going to tattoo that on my forehead so I don't forget it.

    That's the best chess advice i've heard in months. I've been losing lots of rating points recently and when I heard you saying you should pose problems for your opponent instead of playing forcing moves, I immediately realized why. I've been playing only forcing moves recently because I've been feeling the need to completely control the game, which is really playing with fear. I've been unable to keep the tension and thus allowing my opponents to play easy games without thinking. After hearing your advice I played a 15/10 game trying to follow this one rule: pose problems and keep as much tension and pressure as possible. My opponent blundered almost immediately and I won the game in 21 moves.

     

    I would kill to have a coach like you Kaidanov.

    Outstanding in every aspect. I learned a little bit more about Carlsen's play and the thinking process in general over the board.

    I like varied content.  I really liked the opposite colored Bishop videos.This is one of GM Kaidanov's better videos, IMO. I got a lot out of it.

    I like chess for enjoyment video's (vs learning) but it seems like there is too much of that going on now. That would be my complaint if any.

    you didnt like the opp colored bishop videos?  i found them really useful and have already used the ideas several in my games.

    as usual, GM Kaidanov, great video. i love learning about the top players. those Carlsen deflections were really beautiful and just so strong.

    Great video! Reminds me that I need to hold the pressure/tension longer where necessary and not rush to trade or force moves. Also, that Carlsen is a chess genius!

    Great video, the key is to find when "strike at the right moment" is. I seem to always strike too early :)

    I am quite critical about chess.com premium videos. Wishing for better content. However, this video is certainly worth the money  I spend. Can not argue with good content, so I guess I won't. At least its not another lecture about the grunfeld or opposite color bishops.
