3d Boards are just so irritating

Thank you for this excellent lesson. Your approach to increase the complexity of the position step by step works beautifully. Very, very good, I'd love to see more.

Great lesson but it would be easier to follow on 2D boards.

Great Lesson! All the examples of the actual games were remarkable.

I didn't mind the 3d board either. Looks pretty good to me.

Some minor technical things though: I guess there were some animations when moving the pieces, that turned out looking horrible in the video (maybe because of the encoding). Also the sound was suboptimal. I enjoyed the nice touch with the soothing classical music in the background. However I don't think it's a good idea: combined with your commentary (which was good btw) it created a lot of background noise, this effect might have been created by mic problems though, dunno.
Anyway, great vid!

For this kind of exercises, I also agree that it's better to use a 2D board. A virtual 3D board is not exactly the same as a real board, and it usually distorts the positions on many occasions. Good lessons though. :)

Thanks for the feedback. I've switched to the 2D boards for later recordings because of the unsightly blotches that occur during encoding with the 3D board. I don't know why the audio is so poor. I even bought a new mic but it didn't do any good. I only put the music in the background afterwards so the scratchy audio isn't so annoying.

one of the best videos i've seen so far, you've got the progressive build up in complexity really down pat which is the hall mark of the best teachers

Nicely done! I do think a 2D board is better in this case.
