yes they were very instructive and enjoyable to watch , i do know a thing or two about these scandinavian positions! but u attack like a tiger from beggining to end!, it would be nice to see u or other iclandic GM apply these rarely seen styles against the top super GM`S who only play the Petrof and the sicilian .

Hey Zibbit!

Wow, first game was great. That is such a chaotic looking starting position, but you seem make great sense of it. The second was even more enjoyable. I liked the double check Nxf3 variation. Also, it was nice to see you fish for a move that your opponent made. Watching your tactics videos I must say you are lucky to be so gifted, and I imagine in blitz it must be especially frustrating to your opponents.

The 3rd game went by so quickly... well done. *Edit* I actually asked you a very similar question which you answered in another video, so I'll just delete this.

Anyway, another great video Zibbit. Unfortunately I've been unable to visit chessvideos.tv as much as I'd like recently, and I don't think I will be able to for another day or two so the comments I wanted to make on your other video as well as seeing your most recent videos will have to wait : ( But I sincerely appreciate all the hard work that goes into your videos. You're inspirational.

Nice to see you continue with the Nimzowitch line.

It will be nice to see how you'll respond to the 1.e4 Nc6 2.d4... line.

The third game is the most boring line of them all. I used to play the Alekhine and at my level 1800-1900 it is very popular. I think they just try to avoid theory and just play some chess. I accually call it "the boring-avoid-theory-I-have-no-ambition-club-line". Thought, the funny thing is that from the Nimzowitsch move order they usually opt for the 1.e4 Nc6 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nc3 d5 4.e5 Nd7 5.d4 Nb6!? line instead.

Can I ask you one thing? In the book "play 1...Nc6!", as we both have, in game nr14 he showes a blackset up with f5, Nf7 and 0-0-0. Later black cont. with h6, Rg8 ang g5.
I don't like to give my opponent a target of attack. So, I have played somewhat differently with a black set-up of f5, Nf7 and 0-0. Then a put my king on h8, Rg8 and g5.
It has work out pretty good. What do you think about my set-up? (I am trying to get some free advice here!)

Thank so much.

1.e4 Nc6 2.d4 is the line I have least "experience" in thus far. Somehow people tend to avoid it cause they probably think black is a big expert there.

I just browsed through the book last night and looked at game 14. I think your idea at least sounds interesting. And the good thing about the Nimzovitsch is that there is excellent scope for improvisation in so many lines. I think it's very good that you are experimenting and coming up with your own pet lines. If it has worked out pretty good then all the better. Keep playing it cause in the end it's more important that we are comfortable with our position than that it it "correct" according to theory.

So I think a good idea but I would probably have to play it to give a better verdict myself.

Well, Thanks for answering.

I have accually bought all things I need for posting videos. So this evening I will try to make one.
Of course I will start of with Nimzowitch defence, later Grand prix attack and the Dutch defence.
I remember you played the dutch in a few of your first postings. Nothing, you want to do again?
Please?

Jakob

Hehe whatever pleases the fans. I'll try to throw in some Dutch here and there. A bit fascinated with the Chigorin for now as well and want to keep playing the Benoni. So I guess I need to play a lot more!!!

Bumping this video- excellent games and interesting opening. I'm curious as to what Zibbit thinks about the Nimzowitsch Defense four years out from these games though.

Not much on the forums the latter part of 2012 so missed this answer Kamus. I still think it's a fun opening worth a punt, much better than it's reputation.
