Thanks again for your time and hard work, Dennis. The depth and clarity with which you analyze these games is extremely good food for thought. They're especially nice for those of us who don't quite know the positional theories and variations to their fullest extent. You've made great games even better! Looking forward to the top three.

it might be interesting to watch without knowing who won or lost. but i think that as a postmortem analysis we should know from the start who is alive and who is dead.

btw, great video, Dennis. Your lessons are always well done and very helpful. Thanks!

I empathize with your preference to see the game as a mystery, but as almost everyone watching already knows the result (from my blog, the USCL blog, or from having followed the USCL season as it happened), and as I'm typically going to show the game from the winner's point of view anyway (though I forget sometimes when Black wins), it's more natural for me to make a few comments about the game first - especially as I'm one of the judges in the USCL Game of the Year contest. Another benefit is that I can give the viewer some general tips on what to watch for. For those who want to keep the outcome a mystery as long as possible, just slide the bar in a minute or two and watch the intro, if at all, after you've seen the game.

As a fan of Larry Chrisiansen's from his Attacking Chess series on ICC I expected nothing less from him, and you were right to point out "Not against Christiansen". He's a great attacker and it was very nice seeing analysis of one of his games.

Great job as usual Dennis. Looking forward to tonights Karpov-Sax game on
