It's amazing how often you can predict Gareth's moves. But I also sense a lot of bias in his favor. Your judgments of his moves are a lot more generous than your judgments of his opponent's! You must treat all your students really well.
Wow, really great OPENING (for those who haven't got a star or a crown or a diamond beside their names, just like me).. Anyway, despite that, I like so much the first three moves of the black. It primarily seems to have the control of the attack.
Another great video lesson, and another vote for many more of these. These hybrids are *extremely* helpful !!

After his opponent employs a slightly obscure opening, GambitGareth manages to create a natural attacking structure towards the kingside. As usual, Gareth's calculation is precise and his approach aggressive, but his Sensei has some parting words for his student. Particularly, he challenges Gambit to get all of his pieces on their most active positions before leaping into battle. A good lesson for all...

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.
