If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
- Sun Tzu

:D Fantastic. Bd2!! now that's what I call a winning move. So many paradoxical moves in that game. Is that the Ulvestadt defence to the Fried Liver? I was expecting the Traxler (Ng5-Bc5!) which is crazy as hell. Nevertheless terrific stuff and congratulations on a fab vid.

I use to play the Traxler, but decided to be more sober this game. I think the ulvestadt is with b5, but you might be right. Thank you for the compliments.

The ulvestadt is after ,d5 exd5 b5!?

This variation I dont know the name for it but it defers from the main line in tha after the usual h6 (kicking the knight back to f3), e4 wich is also main line ne5 (only move) black plays qd4?! wich is a move that forces white to lose his castling priviliges is a very interesting move, black is then as salesman says. forcd to move the queen back to d8 again, but for the loss of time and the fact that white has got a perfect pawnstructure and an extra pawnto boot, does have a permanent practical problem of a central king ( 0-0-0 will never be practical )


This opening variation is a tactical choice, leaves black with a very tough route to come up with evidence that the king is unsafe.

Spassky has played this variation in a serious game as black.

This game is the one most appreciated by me ever publiced her on cg.tv.

I'm appreciative of the way you think about chess. You don't just study endgames or whatever or do analysis all the time, you think about the game itself. I know, lots of masters think about the game and sometimes also about psychology, but there's also some sort of unorthodoxy about you that's so damn sweet to listen to. I feel like you could even make a video about your lucky pen doing everything for you and still make it plausible :P. Everything can happen! Look at your video/game about opening creativity for example!

I completely agree with your view in this game. But you can even state it much more practical. If you know someone is highly agressive, then you can use that against them: set traps etc. I mean, someone like Tal wouldn't probably just grind a position out if he'd have a speculative sacrifice to make somewhere on the board :). Or sometimes you can just sit back and wait for a move to let your opponent do something rashly.

Oh and it's good to see you find these tactics in the game :).
