    I have played the scheveningen/Najdorf systems for black for years now and greatly appreciate the new info you have provided me.I just want to assure readers of this comment that indeed most people do develop their bishop to c4 most times on move 2,so pay special attention to Danny's recomendations in this area.Thanks for the great video.

    Nice video once again Daniel!

    Somewhere around 25th min you're playing Nbd7 before Bb7.That allows Nc6, forking the queen and the bishop.

    I always thought I should avoid that because my d6 pawn will become weak once the bishop is taken. Is that something to keep in mind or is that not a challenging way for white to play?

    Really nice lectures on the Scheveningen here, I play the Sicilian Najdorf myself preferably with e5. But in the Bc4 and Bg5 variations e5 isn't really a valid option. This videos will really help me feel comfortable when facing those openings. In my last tournament I played my first game vs an IM and he really blew me away in the Sozin. Won't happen next time!

    Many thanks for these lectures! Structure and content was well thought-out and sample games were interesting and instructive. Ideas behind moves well explained. Looking forward for more in the future :)

    Really really like this video and I am going to watch it again tonight! And make a point to go back over the series. Danny, can't thank you enough for this series and this one in particular! kudos

    I think your pawn structure series has been wonderful.  As a result I've switched how I approach handling both the Dragon and the Caro-Kann.

    Would you be interested in doing one on the Scotch next (a-pawn, doubled c-pawns, d pawn, and then f-h pawns)?  Today when I played you, I found out thru post-mortem that by mishandling my doubled pawns, I missed a win (analysis in Mark's post if you cared to look) which would have made my chess career, but if with your coaching, next time I might not!

    Could you do a video series on the Taimanov and the Kan?

    Thanks to those who enjoyed this lecture. Sorry if it was a little fast or advanced, but I was trying to achieve a lot. 

    Lindauer is right that it was much more "technical and tactical" than most the others (meaning there weren't lots of general strategic concepts "holding our hands" throughout) -- BUT hopefully we have already discussed lots of the important strategic concepts in this structure in the previous videos. Of course, there will also be more "strategery Tongue out" in the remaining videos on this structure...

    Awesome! I play a Kan (Paulsen) Sicilian and I often end up in similar lines. 

    Style is not too fast. After all, this is marked as advanced so I expect this pace.

    This is as good as a personal lesson for me because this is what I play as black against 1.e4 all the time!! Very nice work Danny Cool
