I have to say: I LOVE the content!! It's such a nice positional game and well explained with ideas and variations. Combined with some evaluations at a few different points in the game, it made a good video!

I like it too, because while the setup is common, the material about it is very rare (in video-format).

Very intricate maneuvering game. I thought your presentation was very good, although I might suggest when you go between variations and showing the other games, a bit slower and more clarity on where we are, because it was easy to forget whether we were looking at the game or variations at a few points. Your positional understanding really impressed me in this video, I kept waiting for white to sacrifice somewhere in the early middlegame, like RxN on h5 or something along those lines, but it never happened, as black had everything under control. A very nice introduction, and your playing style is a perfect compliment to the other presenters on the site. Welcome aboard!

Very nice video, the opennig has been well explained as well as the main ideas of the middle game but a bit embarrasing with all those variants up and down, i´think it shouldn´t be a D rated video, anyway a very good job, thnx

Nice change of pace from DennisM, which is not a qualitative assessment one way or the other.

I appreciate that the author took time out to describe the positional trumps and general aims for each side. Thx.

Even though I haven't had time to watch the whole video (I've made it about halfway) I'm enjoying what I've seen so far. It's great to have another highly rated player making a video each week. :)
