Have just been catching up with the "on demand" tv and enjoying the coverage of Corus. 

Got to round 7 with brilliant coverage of the Kramnik - Nakamura game by IM Pruess (and co-presenter) on 24 January. 

The coverage stopped after 38 minutes and then re-continued for 27 minutes by which time I was completely engrossed.  But then the second segment cut out and I cannot find where it continues.

Have I overlooked it somewhere?  Would really love to see the final part of coverage of this game if possible.    Any suggestions ?   Thanks.


I've asked IM Pruess to respond to this for you


Our internet connection died, and sadly, we were not able to cover the end of the game. I remember the frustration as though it were yesterday.


Nooooo lol - oh well, these things happen.  Thanks for all the great shows you put on - they are the highest quality ever.  I keep a note of how far I've got into a show so that if I have to leave it, I pick it up where I left off at a later date. 

I don't know how much was left of those two games in R7 of Corus, but maybe there's enough content there for one of your video presenters to do a show on?  Just a thought.  You'd built up the anticipation in those games so much I'm dying to see them analysed to the end. 

On the subject of video presentations - another suggestion is a series on the Scandinavian with 2...Nf6.  There are lines here that are brilliant for the beginner/intermediate player to learn because they teach moves which would not necessarily be a player's first natural choice. 

i.e.   1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Nf6 3.c4 e6 4.dxe6 Nc6 5.exf7+ Kxf7 6.Nc3 Bf5 7.Nf3 Nb4 8.Ne5+ Ke6 9.Qe2 Nc2+ 10.Kd1 Nd4 11.Nc6+ Nxe2 12.Nxd8+ Rxd8 13.Bxe2 Bc5

A master would not want to be black here I guess but it is so easy for white to go wrong if he is not familiar with this opening.

Anyway, just a suggestion.  Thanks again for all your hard work.

Best wishes
