Huh? I don't want to reduce the entertainment value, I want to increase the entertainment value! I can always play serious as curtains anyway. Anyway I've won a bunch of games in a row so I feel ok now :)

Curtains,

I've been lurking the last few days, watching your videos in particular, and thought I should register my support -- definitely a fan.

So, please, shake off this loss and keep posting vids. Much appreciated.

I have a serious question. Can you comment on why Rg4 was such an overwhelming move over Rg6? What is your experience with chess blindness? Is it just sleep deprivation?

I dunno I was really tired :) Dunno what happened I mean honestly I didn't do anything good the whole game, I simply won a piece due to an opening trap that I had basically memorized and then just couldn't think straight the rest of the game.

Wow... the game's result is as surprising as 42. d5??. We're all still rooting for you though... go, Greg, go!

Indeed, you need to focus until you have a clear plan. And it's much more fun to watch when you have one, too! :)

I think I've watched all of your 200+ live blitz games, many of them more than once. "They're like children" is the single most funny moment in them all. Doesn't matter than you lost, so awesome.

it's okay, it was an educational game for the opening trap and was educational on how to look at more possiblities, we all can learn from it, don't feel bad

Hell yeah, I'm glad you lost, you're way to arrogant dude, I don't know if your really this arrogant or if your just trying to act cool to entertain your viewers. How old are you? 3? You still have a lot to learn. You should be ashamed of yourself... :?

So... you revive an old thread to state your completely uncared for opinion? I hope a lot of other watchers take an offense to your reaction, mr. 'mature', atleast I know I do. Curtains made a million and one videos, free, instructive and funny. Now you come along, watch one video and tell him to grow up? That's seriously rude... Moreover, you're just ridiculously wrong about Curtain's 'arrogance', it's just show and part of the derby-clash between two esteemed members of this site. Even if it was arrogance, it would be justified: every IM should wtfpwn these pesky little FMs all day long :P.

Awaken, fanclub of Curtains! Awaken and drive the infidel out of this topic! Ad arma!

edit: hmm, didn't mean to sound that harsh and serious... even though I do think it's very rude of you.

I have watched and read more stuff from Curtains than this.
And tell me, how do I revive an old thread just to state my uncared opinion.
What I have seen and read I can tell that Curtains is a pretty cool guy. I mean doing this stuff for other chess players is very kind.
But God, he was arrogant in that video.
I have the right to state my opinion and watch older video's and "revive" them when I want.
But I don't think behaving like how he did was really mature. And there is nothing wrong with stating that as long as you do it in a good way.
But maybe some of my sentences were harsh and weren't necessary, so I apologize for that to IM Curtains.
