The length somehow got away from me, was intending max 30 min originally.

Geez, those problems were sickening in the end.

Sometime since June of last year when you made the video, Chesstempo created alternate moves. I think some of the problems were just bad though, and I at least hope they've been eliminated or altered.

It's apparent the Standard ratings have inflated a lot since the video was made as well.

You were basically blitzing out the standard problems. It's no wonder you're so good at 5 minute chess. For me to watch, I felt humbled since I couldn't follow along the entire time. It was impressive and fun, and the beer drinking was pretty funny, :lol:

I rewind the videos and replay the parts I do not immediately understand, so the format works very well.

The other site you visited was Chess Emerald, I think. I looked at your stats on Chesstempo and see that June was your last active month. Do you still solve on another site these days?

You solve tactics with a very systematic approach and it is helpful to watch. You've produced so many good videos and I still haven't watched them all. Clearly, I've got some work to do. :D

I nearly pissed myself for your attempts to make the right move. Be7 btw is met by Rxe7. And enterprise the standard ratings have not inflated. People have just started thinking longer.

Funny to rewatch yourself from 4+ years ago. Maybe it's that we always feel wiser but I think my tactics improved a lot. I was yelling at myself at some points in this video ;-)
