Please help me my rating is only1345
Well we are all glad to have you back. You and Danny never fail to make some good videos for us to watch.
i was travelling for 4 months, and could not get access to good internet connections very often, for recording. i'm recording again now.
No disagreement there. Only way to improve is to constantly grow. I didn't try it enough, once I saw my playing suffer I started carrying my chess board everywhere so I no longer had to play from the bird's eye view down. It is an interesting thought though. BTW David, what happened with this series here. It was interesting to have you following and commenting on his games.
we definitely are. but do you think it's more than a habit? if it's only a habit, then it's good to start breaking it.
I used to think like that David, but then my friends lack of having a real chess board prompted me to play from the top view of a birds eye view of a chess program against him. Might just be me, but it was certainly more difficult. I think we are more hard wired to see this view from the bottom players perspective.
yeah, i figured that's what he meant. and i was trying to point out that it's a meaningless/pointless convention, since there is no difference in our perspective between on top and on bottom.
I'm thinking he meant a player is usually playing on bottom in a bird's eye view.
hey rocla, i'm glad you like them. we're actually seeing the board from a "bird's-eye" perspective, not from white or black.
great idea again, but.....if ur following black maybe it's a good idea to flip the bord so we see from blacks perspective?....food for thought. anyway, thanks for investing ur time in theser great videos
thanks for the suggestion, yousef, but including the level of the player in the title is just not snappy enough. we already use the titles to indicate what type of video it is or what series it belongs to, and we can't have two mile long purely descriptive titles. the videos are all tagged with a "level" and that level indicates the level of the player in these live sessions, bc that's the audience for whom the game and commentary will be most apt.
we will do some other players in the future :-)
@ david I think it would be interesting to follow a variety of people, but you should include in the title / description the level of the player being followed
This video was a very good introduction to start the series.
Dont stalk the poor guy :)... Nice video, I learned ALOT
This is VERY exciting! The best new idea for a chess video series I ever heard of. And that IS a compliment from somebody that usually only watches the Great Masters! Additionally I would love to see video coverage of something like Kasparov-Karpov Matches (please not Fischer-Spassky as this has been covered extensively over the years ;)
This was a beautiful idea for a series. I'll be following it for sure.
Two awesome games!....thx Gareth and IM pruess and your sense of humour is AWESOME! keep up making vids like this coz we r waiting for more!
thanks for the feedback.
At first i thought Qb6 was a mouse slip... But I think this is the right level. In the first game, no offense, he played badly, but the second game was for higher rated audiences. I approve of this idea, but still like teaching videos slightly more.

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.
