    After Ba5, b4, Bb6, c5, c6 white does not win a piece.

    I know I must be a patz for missing something here but after ...Ba5 in the opening sequence, followed by b4 Bb6, why not simply c5, trapping the bishop and getting it for a pawn?

    Thanks for sharing. I learned there is no rush to develop in closed positions when instead you can maneuver your pieces to better squares. That Nc6, Ne5, Ng6, Nf8, and Ne6 was a good example.

    In teresting. He is correct to say that 3.Nd5 in response to 2. Bb4 is controversial. Euwe wrote somewhere that he did not recommend 3.Nd5 because it was premature - I'd need to go back to his writings to see what he based that upon. Not saying that Roman is wrong. It shows that ultimately as a player you have to form your own opinion.

    @PowerLevel_9001 - Thank you so much for your contribution. Positional play takes some advanced thinking and time to get used to, but in the end is usually superior to, "BanzaaiiiI!", attacks.  Winning percentages are a good rule of thumb regarding the relative success of a given opening, or not.  Of course, I'm referring to real chess here and not the luck of bullet play.

    @pumpupthevolume247 - If you've never been a fan of the English Opening, that's a shame because it is very potent with some of the highest winning percentages of any opening.

    I've never been a fan of the English opening but I do enjoy playing against it as black, so I'll definately be looking forward to your lesson on playing it as black! Great video as always Roman

    Thanks for doing this series. I've been wanting to book up on the English and make it part of my repertoire for a while now.

    I like the material but find that a lot of time was spent going over unrealistic/bad moves.  If intented toward intermediate players like myself I'd rather see a shorter video with more explanation on the better variations.  Many times I could see a line was unplayable after a couple moves and was hoping to move on.  The material is top notch, much of the video could be invaluable to beginner players and advanced alike.
