Something I noticed about the higher-rated players on the site who do commentaries is that you all seem to have really coldly logical and pragmatic thinking about your moves. I'm talking like you, Greg, Brett, and Calm, I noticed it the most with (no offense to others, I just watch those four the most). I really like that. Maybe one of you could do a series on how to think logically and practically in chess?

good response. I think that Kasparov is a great example of this. I've your have ever heard him explain how he chooses a move it is really inspiring and straightforward.

Zibbit, I really like the pawn on the 7th vs. Knight on the 8th pattern. I had never learned about it and it has brought new ideas into my understanding of chess. If it were anything else other than a knight, there would be a way to defend. Move the rook behind the pawn, take the pawn with the bishop, either or for a queen. Its just interesting to me.

Good video Zibbit. I have been able to use the techniques you presented many times. Also, knowing the "Stopping Spassky" concept is very useful when preparing an attack against your opponent, if you know he has this defensive resource available, you need to find another method for attack than just throwing the pawns up the board, a useful tool to know from both sides of the board.

Thanks for the plug on the Bogolujbow-Alekhine game, for those who are interested, here are the urls:

viewtopic.php?t=4673 (1st part of the game)

viewtopic.php?t=4672 (2nd part with the Engles Pawn mentioned in this video).

Looking forward to more - keep up the good work.

@bebopbrain, RAU4ever, Bigpatzer: ty sirs

@WolfgangSenff: I don't know, haven't really thought about that. But probably this applies to most people who are good at something!?

@wetpaste: Nice to hear this theme enchanced your understanding.

@katar: Yes I've seen this one before, very related theme.

@Steve: ty, have gotten many ideas and also more than once I have thought about a theme and then it appeared in your videos as well giving me further examples.

@GW: thanks very much ;-)

Zibbit,

Nice job putting together another video in this series. I thought you might like this tactic (It is not up to the quality of the patterns in this video).

Watching your videos where we see how these tactical patterns and positions arise has improved my chess much more than doing problems on chesstempo. Your videos are much more instructive and are easier to take the lessons onto the board.

Black to Move.

I think White has an easy time making a draw if Black captures the rook, but if Black captures the pawn it is not so easy. I guess it is a question of not being lazy and trying to find that better move. I agree with WolfgangSenff's ending and I'll leave on the note that your videos inspire me to be much less lazy :D :lol:
