very good lesson
In the Rx h6 position I think a strong plan for black after Rxa6 might be Kh7 followed by doubling rooks on the g-file.
Great video, keep 'em coming!
I was just wondering if you could do an analysis segment at the end of each "Solitaire Chess" video? This would help the viewers understand some of the points, such as why black did not do Rxg4 at 19:58, that you could not go over while viewing the actual game. Anyways great video! Please continue the "Solitaire Chess" series.
I've enjoyed this series more than any others. Please do more!! :)
there was a book i had one time called solitare chess which i thought was weird at the time but it proved very good and fun too trying to guess the moves or reason through it, but GM Kaidanov you've done this a hundred times better! It's great seeing how you reason through each possibility ... sometimes knowing and sometimes trying to figure it out but always with sound reasoning and patience
Yeah I agree with a lot of the previous comments that it is quite an original series and a very instructive and effective teaching tool, I definately am looking forward to part 4.
Awesome video i think this is a great way to learn more about chess, i love positional games :)
Thank you GM Kaidanov. This was a very useful video.
Why can't they just show me the whole video
Very original series, it's a good suggestion for training. I really appreciate it, thanks.
very good vido. thanks!
I'm siding with baddogno's comment on the winning series, very instructive and I hope to see many more of these solitaire chess videos; many thanks!
Gregory, you are awesome!
I think you have a winning series here. Hope you do many more lessons in solitaire chess; thank you for your insight.

In part two of this exciting Solitaire Chess video, we learn that the best defense can be a good offense! Here we see Grandmaster Tomashevsky defend his worse position by creating strong counter-play (a5 with the threat of Rb6) on the Queenside. After equalizing, his opponent loses his way and eventually blunders away the game. GM Kaidanov is once again our guide...
Players: Tomashevsky, E.
