ClausJensen's series on Bent Larsen is possibly the best series ever uploaded to this site. Certainly on par with paid videos, or better.

would be cool if new comments showed up at the "legacy" threads from time to time.

Obviously zibbit's pattern recognition series.
although listing it here is kind of like putting Michael Jordan in a list of famous people from Wilmington North Carolina

Thanks katar- good stuff, indeed

BTW, ! I have changed the status of this topic to "announcement" so that it will permanently show up at the top of the forum index for "General Discussion"- hopefully more people will see it there. Also, I hope that everyone will contribute their own picks for Chessvideo.tv classics. One of the problems with a forum-based site is that worthy videos fall quickly off the radar screen unless people continually post comments (which doesn't really happen). Maybe when there are more contributions (and I have more time), I'll create a wiki page and convince the admins (if they are still alive) to put a link on the front page.

Post your faves people!

In a shameless act of self-promoting I would like to point the attention to my endgame vid on minor pieces - and maybe on rook endgames.
Moderator of course may feel free to punish me for that and banhammer that post into oblivion :)

Lasker vs. Steinitz
very interesting to get a modern 2500 ELO strength player's take on this old match...

Mark Dvoretsky wrote in his Analytical Manual that a chess player of any level can learn "how to fight" by studying Lasker. Specifically, how to be tenacious and resourceful. Just do a video search for "curtains lasker" and you will get a "style file" on the Second World Champion. Most of these cost credits, but some are free.

Along with Lasker vs. Steinitz 1894 (preceding post) I really like the two tournament re-caps:

St Petersburg 1895
