    I really liked this video and enjoy this series by Gregory Kaidanov. For me as a newer player it is difficult to watch super-GMs not only because I do not understand their moves, but also because I don't know any of them! Being introduced to Peter Svidler allows me to watch his games with more enthusiasm and start following top level chess. Thanks and please continue this series!

    very interesting game, i hope you will make more Svidler videos it was really really amazing.

    But what i dont understand is the computer line you mention, i really dont understand why its so difficult for Grandmaster to find unless its really time trouble. To me it seems really easy compared to what grandmaster play. But maybe i just have the wrong impression.

    I love what he says at 3:45 about super grandmasters finding ways of finding zwischenzug, or in-between-moves, which keep the tension and basically add to the tension- heightening the tension

    You forgot to mention that Peter Svidler is a massive cricket fan and will be avidly watching the Ashes (no joke).

    Great video. Monthly subscription is cheaper than a 6-pack of beer, cheaper than a pack of smokes, cheaper than what my wife spends to get somebody to scrub her nails with this oblong board thingy, if you like chess than membership is nothing for unlimited chess videos, lessons, chess mentor, tactics trainer, .. .. ..

    GM Kaidanov,


    As an enthusiastic follower of world chess, I applaud you for this much appreciated and well crafted series.  Can't wait to see what you have to say about Anand, Kramnik, and Carlsen!

    I don't get it.. there's always a most-recent video on the home page, but most of them don't attract all these immature comments from non-members.  Was this one billed differently than usual or something?

    Thanks for the great video. I'd like to see more in the future.

    This is a great lesson about strategy and maintenance of tension, utilizing ideas present in the position which we hope to see if we look carefully enough.
