About the Marshall-game, I wanted to point out that Nxc4 doesn't work, not because the bishop goes to d3, not b3, so that it can be defended by Rxd2 the next move if it is attacked by the white knight.



I felt that Ne3 worked after Bd3....I went Bb3 to make sure the knight on d5 was defended. Doing this blindfold so could be making some huge mistake :)


The other one is a tough question. I'll try to answer it if I have time, but I'm sure your idea has merit, just because it can't be so wrong to want to get the knight to d5 :)

Another good vid. I especially like the T-Pain vocal effects when you switch from one window to another. I could watch this stuff all day, especially when you are ranting, good stuff.

Hey, curtains, just wanted to say that I like these new videos. It's very fun to listen when you talk about the players, the things you know about them, when you look up info about them and so on. Keep up the good work, besides you should be a commentator on ICC, commenting the games live mith Mig, like Larry C does. That would be great!

Hi Curtains! I've heard Inarkiev is calling you Hashade in his blog! :wink:

(PS: Why don't you install the Adblock extension to your Firefox to remove those ads and popups)

It may be out of style but this site still has absolutely scads of great videos.
