    I absolutely love this style of zero counterplay chess. It can be difficult to achieve, but the freedom to effortless relocate your pieces is so invigorating. Loved this game. Great video!

    Danny, I don't know about the others, but I am more interested in the over talking a lot more than you probably think. It keeps me interested actually.  I usually get lost in your calculation of lines at first when Im trying to see the moves in my head but your rattling them off like 3 moves a second. I can eventually catch up but by then your off on some key move that I miss in a position lol. But its all good. Thats why I watch the video multiple times.  Already watched this one twice lol.   I have seen videos that were an hour long that were still very insightful even with the length.   The only thing I have disliked so far on the vidoes is when a game is broken up into 2 videos because it feels like more work for me if I just want to sit back and enjoy (I HDMI my comp to TV so I can watch from bed) Don't want to have to get up and then go find 2nd video to finish the game.  All in all though, I have no complaints on length.

    Probably Danny's best video ever. I love the commentary. Hiarous, entertaining, educational, witty, and very worth watching by all levels.

    We need more live sessions like this! Once per week at least please.

    Go Pony!

    I don't want to be just another praise giver here on this comment thread after having watched this entire video of almost 25 MINUTES...but alas, I must agree...Danny IS the bombdiggity. Another great video Danny. Had me laughing, crying, excited, on edge, and the suspsense was paramount. Time to ask the boss for another raise after a performance like that.

    If you made a 3 day long video I would watch it from beginning to end

    Fun, entertaining, enlighting, in a word: GREAT!  But please speak slower for us foreign fans.  May be can come up with some feature that will allow us to slow down the sound, or better yet, provide SUBTITLES.....

    I'd like to see a dual commentary where two people go over simultaneously a game, either that they played or amatuer game or whatever.  That way they might disagree on something or whatever and we can see more on how masters think differently about certain things.  One reason I like the Pruess/Rensch TV Videos.


    EDIT: I think there should be a poll on somewhere that says What is your recommend length of time on a video on or something. To get some solid user data input.

    Nice to know you have a new 40min video on thursday, as I've now watched all your videos made in 2011! In your longer lectures you don't talk too much or ramble etc in fact nor do 95% of the other video authors, maybe I'm just someone who really enjoys a longer video because you can really get into it - it's not finished before you've got comfy Laughing You are the #1 video author so please keep these insanely crazy yet super-educational clips rolling...

    @ddp17 -- Very interesting idea... I wonder if a video that size could even upload to our server Tongue out... But some longer "Live Sessions" as well as "dual author" Live Sessions are on my list (meaning me and another author giving two versions of the same game, etc).

    @tactician-prodigy -- The point you bring up about not wanting one game split into two parts is a BIG reason why we try to keep the lectures at around 20-25 minutes. If a video passes the 40 mintue mark, we almost always "consider" a two-part break up (even if we don't do it) because almost EVERYONE has 20 minutes for a great video, but MOST people don't have (or want to give) 40 minutes of their time in one setting...

    That said, I am taking in all the feedback on this from everyone and making mental notes for future videos (for both me and the authors I manage)...

    Thanks to all!!!
