    Excellent first video, with a pace that is just right for me.  I greatly enjoy these videos on critical positions from both you and Danny Rensch. I am new to chess,  so it is especially helpful to hear how good players think about unfamiliar positons, especially since most of the positions I face are new, often starting before move 5!

    I echo all the cheers and compliments to John on his first video! I LOVED this video!! I thought his delivery was clear, to the point, with an easy to follow "tempo" (a little easier than my style perhaps Tongue out) and of course, there were many highly instructive moments along the way -- which means the choice of content was great...

    John, as your friend and now co-worker Wink, I am totally pumped to have you aboard our video team!

    In other notes, and after reading the feedback on this video, I wanted to say that my next lecture (coming out manana -- Thursday the 17th --) has some more advice and some of my own ideas about how to sense critical moments not only in your games, but during post game analysis as well (it's the next in the "How to Analyze Your Own Games" series). Not self-promoting I promise Foot in mouth, but I just figured it might help for people who feel a little lost on the subject. Though I admit I am not sure I explain it as well as John does here...

    Thanks everyone!
