Thanks Elliott excellent level for us improving players!
learning a lot thanks
I am glad I saw this thks
Good Job, FM Eliiot!!! Keep the videos coming! I look forward to you making more of these instructive videos! Fantastic win against Andej Vospernik!
Hey Elliot, once again thank you for a great video. You make the most complex positions and tactics seem easy to understand and make it accesible for me. You really are a great teacher please keep on making videos.
All the best
Great game Elliott and it's nice to see it end with the 2B+K checkmate that I personally love! I wrote an article myself about it 2 years ago that I think makes good reading for beginner players who haven't learned this technique just yet!
Thanks for sharing this awesome game!!
keep 'em coming!!!!!!111
BEST VIDEOS EVER!!!!!!!!
Elliott, you're the best. Keep making more videos!
At 2:17 I thought that the pawn must reach the other side (d8) in order to be promoted to a queen... am I incorrect?
Very instructional! Thanks so much - more lectures please!!!
So much to learn from this game!
One hell of an instructive game dude. More videos of your games please!
Good video, Thanks.
FM Elliott! Thank you for this series. You certainly deserve to be proud of this game from childhood. I learned a lot from it, especially the two-bishop ending. That was great and I now know where to turn for help should I encounter a similar chess ending and not be able to recall the intricate movements of the two bishops. Again, thank you, and welcome back. More videos soon, OK? I have followed many of your videos and always learned from them.

The symphony comes to an end for FM Elliott Liu, as he simplifies into a two-bishops ending. Still not believing he could lose to a child, his opponent makes him prove that he knows the technique. Naturally Liu handles the mate effortlessly, and the stubbornness of his opponent proves good fodder for a review of a basic checkmate. After 87 moves, the music finally stops for black. Bravo Elliott!
