    I think your live sessions are great...because it teaches us the value of openings..middle game and end games......that's if we can make it atlease to a middle game...I think your explaining what we should do and what we shouldn't do while playing plus giving a handicap is a great idea.maybe some way you can set it up where the members can play you a game,that would make our day to play a IM plus someone that we know.

    Thanks David, the tip about the weak black squares when both knights are on black is the one that I`ll remember.  This site is really worth the money :-)

    hmmm good point Matteos, thanks. we could standardize putting the words Live Session in the title of any video of this format. not sure why i didn't on this one.

    and to everyone who liked the video, i'm glad! i read the comments, so thanks!

    Why didn't you put this in with Rensch and Galofre's Live Sessions? There are so many videos on this site its hard to find the ones you want to see (in my case usually live sessions) - it would make it easier when searching. 

    Nice video though ...

    I learned a new term. Rook Roller is something I've done in my lessons and something I've witnessed on many occasions, yet this is my first exposure to the term. There is something very refreshing and invigorating for me in watching David's videos. I benefited in hearing from David on the dark square weakness during the second game due to both on his knights placement on dark squares. Also it is good to know that tactics are short term opportunities that can be taken away from us on the next move. Thank you David. Smile

    Agree with paunrunner: it's easier for us noobs to learn if we can see the game from your perspective.


    Absolutely love the videos and the site in general.


    Thanks so much!
