Congratulations on being accepted at the school. Good words to live by in your opening comments. Chess spills over into real life often in good and rewarding ways.

Very nice explanations throughout the game. Also, good choice of a game to present, I haven't seen this game in a long long time. It's good to go over some of these old game as they often illustrate a very straight-forward style of play, clear and logical. Image

Appreciate the video, I liked it. The annotation was concise and to the point. Keres is one of my favorites of all time. A positional genius. It's interesting to note that he has fared somewhat badly against Alekhine/Botvinnik but has had amazing results against heaps of others around that time, including someone like Tal.

The following two games always brings a smile to my face. The constant threats and piece activity seem almost effortless.

Dear Steve,

Thanks for your kind words! I need to ''fight'' ... and I will fight!
About this wonderful game... and Keres... what to say? He had personal problems. He had to fight for his life... and he won ...more than many games; He is appreciated, beloved and this is much more important than titles, money or anything we can buy.
Peace and health!

Rodrigo

Thanks!

Actually I work at a company wich is specialized in special equipaments for Oil and Gas industry. And I'll been studying at UFSCAR - Federal University of Sao Carlos a course that is very much related to that - Etanol Technology.
So I'll been studying something I already know and more than that ,I believe that future will be very much influenced by this kind of fuel...

Best regards,

Peace and health!

Rodrigo

Congratulations on the school, I could hear it meant a lot to you.

Also nice to see something from Keres. When I was young one of the first chess books I came to own was his endgame book, it was translated in my language. I always remember the picture of him and he looks very impressive like a true gentleman and that's always what you read about him.

Sorry but I can't really understand your accent in this video. I think I liked some older videos of yours so I don't get why. Judging from the comments I'm missing out on a great video. Shame.

Heyas Master! How've you been?
Thanks a lot! Yes, to be back to school is a pleasure!
And about Keres... just good things to say... I think that in next video I'll show a little about...Rubinstein and a typical manouvre he used to beat both Capablanca...and Lasker!

Peace and health!

Hi Sarciness!
:-( It's a pity... but I think it's my fault. My English is deplorable... I'll try to make my best next time...
Thanks for your feedback!

Peace and health!
