I didn't realize it until the video was about half done that I had looked at this with a local master 30+ years ago. We spent about 4 or 5 hours looking at all sorts of lines. An interesting game which at first seems simple. Starts out with the premise of how to get compensation for the knight and then there are so many different ways to try to do so.

Thanks, that was an enjoyable video.

Great game, some very deep play there.

Inspired by this series I have also started doing some solitaire chess. However, I am not sure that using a fast time control is really very beneficial. Do you feel you're learning a lot by doing these at that speed, or is it mostly just for fun/learning chess history? Maybe it's just too fast for me because I need longer to find the plans that you see straight away.

It works for me but you can just pause the video and spend more time :)

Lasker really went out on a limb there- given his performance in the tournament up to that point, I guess he was just overconfident. Interesting game even if you sounded in pain for most of it! :)

I actually meant when I'm doing solitaire by myself, without a video. It's all easy when I have you planting the ideas in my head as we go along, making me feel like a genius when I spot the right move ;) :D

What I meant was, that you are often getting in time trouble in these vids and don't really have time to calculate things properly once it gets to a critical position. So even though you're a great player, you're still trying to find moves that could easily warrant at least 30 mins or so consideration, in just 1 minute sometimes. I'm not saying this to criticise your videos/study habits because a) I don't know your exact motives for doing it and b) I am not stupid and I understand that in the real world you can't spend 4 hours studying every game when you're also trying to cover every major tournament in chess history! I just wonder if you feel it has really helped you develop when you do it that fast.

I get the essence of the game and it helps me understand which are most instructive for future teaching purposes. Also I retain the key concepts

Haha, when I tried to do it with that time control I barely even grasped the key concepts, let alone retained them :D I think I need to start with at least half an hour and maybe get an extra couple of minutes per move, to really get something out of it. With your videos though it is totally different because you get that nudge in the right direction.

Anyway enjoying this series and I guess we're going to see eventually more and more people coming on the scene who give Lasker a serious run for his money.
