    Wow outstanding analysis. Tremendously useful for novice players like me. I am sure I have been guilty of many of these chess sins, i.e bad unforced exchanges, wasting time etc. Many pearls in this series too numerous to count. Please review more amateurs gmaes like this in detail. thanks.

    These amateur games often offer more opportunites for instruction for players Under 2000 than grandmaster games.  i.e.  "DON'T PLAY CHESS LIKE THIS!".  Do more analysis of amateur games.  Terrific lecture.

    Great video.  Probably the most useful format for video lessons I've seen so far.  Sure it's nice to analyze master games and see what they do, but it's also nice to know why some moves are mistakes and what the consequences are.  I'd love to see more of these videos.

    Great series of detailed lectures worth going over more then once, Just interested to know at what point in the game that black's pawn push became useless in providing sufficient counter play to affect the success of whites' own pawn push?

    Excellent lecture series!! Pointing out these themes will help in my development in chess theory. I would like to see more of the club player games with move by move analysis and don't worry about the pauses. I enjoy trying to figure the best move first before you telling it first as my understanding of the themes and moves would be re-enforced. Again excellent lecture and keep them coming. Thanks

    I've watched several of the videos on, and I think this short series has been my favorite so far - it really helps to see a complete game played at my skill level and hear a move by move commentary.  Really appreciate the help and hope that you will continue analyzing other games in future videos - thanks!!
