A great finish to the game and some very insightful analysis on the game and info on GM Svidler
I agree with negotiate's comment.
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
Do one on aronian
Fantastic video. I am looking forward to the rest of the series!
that was more notes than Beethoven and I also told my music teacher
Great conclusion to the first video. Thank you Mr. Kaidanov!
I'd like to see a video about Ivanchuk too.
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, .. .. ..
it wasb xxxxxxxx better than any video
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.
I bought a memebership just for the videos. I like it.
Great video Mr Kaidanov! I also hesitated about the membership for a long time, but once i get it i was happiest man ever (ask my wife) ;)
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.
by GM Gregory Kaidanov
Continuing his two-part series on the exploits of Peter Svidler, GM Kaidanov finishes the analysis of the complex recent battle with Ivanchuk. The game is a clinic in the use of zwischenzug, exchange sacrifices, and avoiding trades to keep the tension. Kaidanov claims that super-GMs are even better than him in these areas!
