Re: Zibbit - Icelandic Ch. 2008, Video recap round 2 [34:12]
My knowledge on blockading isolated pawns was not so good, but your analysis was very helpful. I studied it before, but this has definitely solidified where I was unsure.
One of the things so great about your videos is your willingness to go over different possible variations. For example, I was wondering why the rook couldn't take on f2. I was thinking the Queen and rook could line up on the rank and attack the king, but literally a second later you gave white's plan. You do such a great job with your videos that it feels dynamic, more like a conversation than just a lecture.
What do you think are the chances of Danielsen playing the Polar Bear?
Thanks for the video, I'm really enjoying this tournament.
