Excellent explanation. Very informative video. Thanks so much!
You are by FAR my favorite presenter!!!! Keep 'em coming.
this is a great video, but i had to chuckle when i saw a picture of his opponent--he's just a kid! very instructive though, especially the N moves to control d4.
Great video ! Thank you !
Wonderful instruction! Thank You.
What happens if white plays e4.
exellent video! i've learned a lot! upload more!!!
Great video series, very interesting, one of the most instructive videos I ever seen.
Well well! Another excellent piece of work and I especially enjoyed it believe it or not as a Botvinnik System player! Keep up this great series; so logical and straight forward... you're a great teacher ...thanks!!
Another great instructive video! Will you be doing any on white square strategy. With openings as the English or QGD? These are most helpful.
How would play continue if he took your knight immediately after Ned4?
Great video Eugene. After you played Nf6 to d7, I was thinking white could try and cut across your plan of getting the knight to e6 by, instead of playing d3, play f4. Then when you play Nf8 white plays f5. This not only prevents the knight manuever but also gets his kingside play moving.
great video series! keep them coming i'm learning so much!
I like these videos and I would like you to present an entire repertoire based on these ideas. Please do keep these videos coming, they are very interesting and helpful!
by GM Eugene Perelshteyn
With his second video, GM Perelshtyen provides more proof that a repertoire built around positional themes and thematic ideas can work at the highest level! He reviews his own games, highlighting the critical moments where the proper "square control" approach and maneuvers are necessary (his Nf6-d7-f8-e6-d4 plan is quite instructive).
