Again, great video. Enjoyable and well thought out. My change would be:

1. Long range pieces can fork too. :-) You make it sound like short range pieces are only called forking BECAUSE they are short range pieces. Nitpicky I know, sorry.

2. You didn't mention in any of these opposition calls, diagonal opposition (or I missed it) and I don't recall you mentioning Square opposition. (Again unless I missed it. If I remember you only mention close and distant opposition.) The points you mentioned you had opposition again really didn't matter. It was very interesting to see the computer blunder the pawn.:-)

3. In this particular lecture, like the rook one where the open file was missed and the execution, you probably should have focused on the knights. For example, where the knights belong, and planning going into where they go and such.

4. you said you had two passers, in technicality you had one passer and one candidate. Kind of important.

Again I hope no stepping on toes, this is a very good intro and you did keep in interesting.

BTW: The reason Fritz was telling you it was a bad move was because it drew, your move Ke8. Kd8 wins, because the only logical continuation is Ng8, you push a pawn he goes to h6 you protect with Ke8 now, which he has to try to check you so Ng8 and you can push the pawn again. If he starts ignoring knight moves, you can check him when your king is close to the pawn. That is vague but you should get the idea. 0-1
