    "A fight is decided either through a knockout in the ring or by checkmate on the chessboard...
    or of course if one of the two opponents runs out of time on his chess clock."

    I laughed when he got to the chess clock condition Smile neat video.

    These are the three chess commentators on YouTube that I watch. I particularly enjoy Sean's commentary, and Majnu did a nice series on the Sicilian Dragon a while back.  kingscrusher has a nice series on the Slav among many other videos.

    jessicafischerqueen has made several nice YouTube videos on Fischer, Morphy, Alekhine, Keres, and Vera Menchik.  Check them out.

    You can also check out some YouTube Chess Rhapsody videos by Lucio.

    Kingscrusher is by far my favorite. Unfortunately, he's laid off the analysis of grandmaster games that he used to post so often and so well; these days, he only seems to post analyses of his own games (about expert strength, I think) and his live blitz sessions (where he's taken down GMs on occasion). The archives are worth delving into, especially the "Instructive Games" series.

    KingsCrusher is great.  I've learned a lot from watching his videos.

    A common theme in his games is that he focusses on finding good squares for his knights, and this simple strategy often leads to a win.

    I have a YouTube channel. But on a less promotional level, ChessNetwork can't be beat, and jrobi, kingscrusher, vorojstov, SeanGGodley, Greencastleblock are all pretty good.
