just got someone using this :) I didn't know the ideas but only the first 4 or 5 moves. Thank you for the ideas and not giving unexplained lines
G6 was played to prevent Queen H5 in the future!!!
i like ur style man!!!!!!!!
Wow, I've had this played against me, and who knew there could be a deep strategic idea behind it. Applicable to some other positions too it seems.
Now if only I can get a fully systematic way of making safe moves w/o blundering, then I could implement this kind of strategy.
thanks for the insite to this opening
good stuff to think about, thanks
17:00 ...sadnes in his voice when he says "I dont know the reason for this move" ... and then few seconds of silence....lol
Didnt (Zefram) Cochraneinvented warp drive?
hmm interesting, abit to early to trade though.
Clear and concise. Thank you.
Exellent lecture. I have messed around a few times with this opening as white in blitz when I didn't feel like getting into my oppenent's superior Petroff knowledge. And of course, I was playing it completely wrong, thinking since the enemy king is exposed and being down material, I needed to attack like a madman. This lecture fixed all these problems ... outstanding.
IM Pruess is a good teacher. Take his lecture more seriously guys.
You might be the victim of the next Cochrane gambit.
Great video! I found it of great interest, as I have a thread running right now titled "who's winning". The question is asked: In this position, who's winning? You gave me great ideas on how to assess the value of pawns and pieces in a simple to understand mathematical way. This method of assessment you use will help me in evaluating positions in the future diagrams that I post. Perhaps I will also be making better decisions when playing chess. Thank you!
Is this one of the only videos in the world on the cochrane gambit? possibly..
Weird moves. Next time please talk about more moves and why didn't you explain about all the good moves. And why play g4??! Are you white or black?
a 2nd grade girl taught me that in the first grade.
I found it helpfull thank you

IM Pruess shares his own learning process with the viewers. In three parts he goes over how he studied the Cochrane, explaining the concepts and ideas he absorbed. You, too, may find this "complicated" opening crystal clear after hearing these lessons.

IM David Pruess
At the age of twelve, David was lucky to be brought by his mother to a session of the Berkeley Chess School's Friday night kid's chess club, where he met NM Robert Haines, who showed him what chess was. Eighteen years later, he is still in love with the game. He has shared first in a few major tournaments, eg: American Open, North American Open, and Open Rohde (France), and played in several US Championships.
