Thanks, it's very instructive.
The "Get PGN" button on the right seems to be working fine... If you don't have a "chess program" (like ChessBase, Fritz, etc) it should still show up as a text document, pumpupthevolume...
Let us know...
does clicking on "get pgn" to the right of the bottom of the video work for you?
This is a really good game, where can I find the whole PGN ?
Must have been some serious time constraint. I would never have seen the knight initiative, but the rook files on a and c were screaming for whites back row.
Hi who's online for a game?
While I didn't see it through to the very end, I was proud that I was focused on Nxf4, over Nxe3 etc...undermining the backwards e-pawn, and then moving the Rc5 over. Amazing game and analysis, as always.
It's these little glimpses of seeing the winning moves from elite players that keeps me going, and interested.

I'm only 12 but i compete in various tournaments
I was in a tournament that GM Jaan Ehlvest was at, in Reno. Was riding on the shuttle back to the Airport and all these women were on the bus talking about their bowling tournament. Almost mentioned GM Jaan Ehlvest one great chess player was in their mists but I played 1.d4 instead of 1.e4.

great game david
Thank you everyone for watching the video and thanks to David for providing such a great game for me to review!
I hope I didn't lose anyone in the tricky tactical variations of this game, and that the principles of how to evaluate these types of positions are coming through loud and clear...
Obviously David was under time pressure and couldn't realistically calculate everything over the board, but in hindsight, we can see that our belief held true: We must REALLY push ourselves to always play aggressive, "initiative seeking", moves -- regardless the circumstances -- when playing material imbalances such as these...
by IM Daniel Rensch
IM Rensch continues his series by reviewing an epic battle between GM Jaan Ehlvest and one of our own... International Master David Pruess made the decision to sacrifice his Queen for an insane initiative! Unfortunately, after missing a powerful opportunity to capitalize on his strong play, the game spun out of control, leading to horrific time pressure and a practical mess! How did the game finish, and what will you learn today about playing pieces against the Queen? Watch and find out...
Players: Ehlvest, J.
vs. Pruess, D.
