    I enjoyed this a lot, but....

    It was truly the audience watching you solve problems. If that was your intention, fine, it was good.

    If you wanted to use this as a teaching forum or wanted to involve your audience more, I suggest:

    1) Don't worry about the time or you score, but take your time and explain your thoughts in detail as you go. Key squares, key moves. If you're looking for mate, or a draw, or whatever.

    2) Do a review of each problem afterwards explaining why certain moves were made.

    A couple of times you thought for a while and then made a series of moves without much explanation. Near the end you quickly solved a problem and went on to the next one with no discussion.

    Thanks for doing this. I'll enjoy watching whatever you do.

    The Knight promotion problem was quite involved. I found it instructive how you used the process of elimination. The f pawn push was the initial candidate, but I liked how you said Black just waits with the Rook and there is no profit. Then what? At first the g pawn push just looked wrong, until you hit on the Knight underpromotion.


    Thanks and keep up the good work Zibb. Break a leg in your tournament.

    Really enjoyed this style of video, thanks!! Often some of us lower tacticians can visualize just fine, but having your intuition as a guide is really damn helpful.
