Thank you for all of these
Greatest Chess Minds series.
Very instructive and you have helped my play with your commentary!!
Definitely not the horrors! :)))
I am not sure which genre I would like to be associated with.
Exactly! It wouldn`t.
This way we have both comedies and horrors
It would not be interesting if we were the same, would it?
Yet another brilliant lecture. Thank You, GM Dejan.
I really do find Your voice very calming and reasuring, and the pace very casual and efortless, it`s evident that You`re enjoying Yourself preparing these videos. Our enjoyment is even greater because of that.
On the other hand, when i switch to a lecture by IM Rensch , for example, it`s almost like a completelly different genre
Bigbadjohn, maybe you can right click on the screen and update your flash player, this might work?
Fixing_A_hole, thanks a ton, thank you all for the support!
GerryMo, my voice is my curse, so far I could not really raise it the way that I want to have it (except when my wife drives me mad, but you do not want to listen to that one I guess...)
Thanks for your insight
Why can't I open these videos anymore HELP!!!
Can you speak a bit louder on the videos; your voice is very soft.
Love your lectures. Chess seems easy when you explain! And such a beautiful game. I also like how you speak about styles, as in Gligoric being of the classic style.
Thank you Coach Dejan Bojkov.
Beautiful and instructive.
I can't open these videos anymore. any advice
Good lesson. I learned to trade pieces when the opponent has a spectator piece that can be kept spectating. Owning a spectating piece is about as bad a blundering piece when think about it.
You have the best videos on chess.com
Wow i should make a chess monument of the last position with the bishops. the was AMAZING game. A little pawn investments for the sake of the bishop pawn light square weaknesses and complete open files exploitation by the rooks. I like Capablanca but he never played such a masterpiece of preparation. Gligoric is probably one of the strongest gm who never played a WC match. Tx for sharing that great analysis!
buona sera ...vorrei sapere se esiste una traduzione in italiano grazie ..complimenti per i lavori eseguiti..
by GM Dejan Bojkov
Gligoric was way too good to just show off his best draws, so GM Bojkov is back to give the Yugoslavian GM his full credit. Today he shows a classical treatment against the Nimzo, whereby Black has one piece offsides the entire game. Gligoric's counterpart, his own dark-square bishop, also remains dormant, for the time being. Once it finds a checkers-like path back into the game, it's all over.
