Well done part 1
thanks very contructive
the video cuts off towards the end
Mr Liu your presentation style is great and very listenable but I'm a bit disappointed with this video as it ends very abrubtly, "every move is a threat" but this video contains only a couple of moves that are threats! It would be better if the whole game was covered in a single video.
Great video, very instructive. Love your calm and clear way of explaining!
Really well done! Many GREAT chess players forget basic information that is vital for brginner like me. For example, knowing when to trade a bishp and when not to. Even a simpler concept such as ..... what is a good bishop!! Very clear and much appreciated :)
thanks, nice rules to think about in a game
Good to have you back. Your videos are awesome. Keep 'em comin'.
these are great, please continue and make 20 videos of this series. the first 2 alone are worth my year membership
Instructive. Thank you for the video, FM Liu! :)
One of the best teachers. Always instructive and to the point. Not sure why the whole game is not on one video but looking forward to the conclusion.
I can't wait to see what happens!!
Wonderful! Thank you for making these videos -- they are terrific
Great video. Perhaps in the next you could give a few words regarding planning? Specifically what exactly (or roughly) is a plan, how does your plan change throughout the game, when to abandon your plan, etc.
Wow. So clear and concise. Amazing presentation. Just wish it was longer, lol. Like a good book, I'm left wanting more.

FM Elliot Liu analyzes an instructive Aron Nimzowitsch game where nearly every move contains a potent threat.
Nimzowitsch’s positional understanding was decades ahead of his time, and he makes use of that knowledge to quickly gain a winning position against his hapless opponent.
In this video, part one of the series, FM Liu shows you how to keep up constant threats to gain a positional advantage.
