    Yes, that famous phrase again, " The rest is just a matter of technique". As has been said, a book by that title would be an instant smash in the chess world.

    Both Fischer and Kasparov would respond 2...d6 here if they were black.

    I think h5 was a horrible move by black because after that he can never play f5 without weakening his king. Why didn't black play f5 before playing h5? Looks like he had several opportunities to do so (unless I'm missing something tactically) and it seemed to me the only move to gain some counterplay: attacking the center and, in case white takes the pawn, developing the bishop or the rook. I mean, almost anyone would play that move even in a bullet game. Obviously your opponent is stronger than most people including me so, what am I missing?

     I really enjoyed watching this video; you made it look so easy; sort of like the Great Tigran Petrosian who was great at snuffing out counterplay even before his opponent had come up with a plan.  I hope you do more videos in this series because it shows just how important a strategy like this is; it might be nice to tie it in with a particular opening line into the middlegame/endgame.  Not sure if this is possible; just a thought.

    Hi, I can play the video for about 3 minutes and then it stops and I get an erroe message: "Error loading media: File could not be played." I have refreshed my browser several times but the problem persists. Anyone have an idea how to fix this?

    Great lecture GM Kritz. 

    I'd also be interested in learning "technique (how to)".
