Thanks Dennis,

When I need a break from 1.e4 the Catalan is my choice. I've had many interesting games with it. Many of the variations you covered show how tactically sharp the opening can be.

I always wondered how to play against black when he continues to try to hold on to the c4 pawn. Thanks again Dennis, this is really instructive.

At 31:50 what would happen if white played Ne7+ Nxe7 Rxd8+ Rxd8 Rxd8+ it looks like checkmate for white but I'm not sure. Great video as always btw!!

Oh it turns out that in the position described above, black has the move. Nonetheless it doesn't look like there is too much black can do presently to prevent white's apparent mate threat, or is there?

Again it would be very nice to have a list of the games quoted in the video. Also are there more coming in this series? The Catalan seems to be a lot more popular lately. :?:
