-Taking with the King looks Ridiculous.
-I feel for you about losing. I played a game at my club and lost after winning a piece, but I had to leave so I didn't get to play again and it was angering as all hell. So, I definitely know how you feel.
-"I have to win every game!!" lol, thats how I feel too!
-Don't hate your fans for trying to talk to you. It comes with the fame

Dear Sir:

Thank you for sharing your games with us. I enjoy these videos, and I think I'm learning something.

With respect to ...Kxf7!!, there is a bit of (true) legend attached to it. Way back in the late 80s the late GM Alexander Wojtkiewicz was thrown into prison for refusing to serve in the Soviet army. During his incarceration, he worked out this paradoxical recapture in the Dragon with Bc4: 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 d6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Nf6 5 Nc3 g6 6 Bc4 Bg7 7 0-0 0-0 8 h3 Nc6 9 Be3 Nxe4 10 Bxf7+ Kxf7!! and now 11 Nxe4 Nxd4 12 Bxd4 e5! The point is that the rook on f8 defends the Black queen, so now White cannot try Bc5 tricks. See Adams-Shirov, Biel 1991, for example.

Your videos are great fun and it's good to be able to listen to your thought process through the game curtains. Have you considered doing a dual commentary game with the chess gym? Now that would be fun to watch / listen to! Thank you for taking the time to post these videos so that people like me can learn from them.

Please note that I am 2453 as curtains!!! I have won 7 games in a row (Including one win with black against this GZamfir) and have 17 from my last 20. Sorry that I keep sucking as chessstud, but I will turn it around soon. I have been learning a lot lately, especially from the losses and feel stronger than ever.

hey curtains,

i've started analysing my 5min games in a similar style to u, i'm way lower rated but i also play the 5min pool. i posted a recent game in game analysis forum. the thing about the videos is that i see alot of stuff imissed during the game that i know high rated players will always punish me if i don't start seeing during the game so i think it helps me just get a deeper understanding of positions. just think its pretty cool tool i'm just trying to figure out a practical way to analyze all my games without taking up too much time.

anyways late,r great vids.

I think he meant to put a sock on your microphone or something that allows for sound to get in but the wind from your breath to not make it pop. A very noticable pop happens if you fast forward this video to 30 minutes and 33 seconds.

in all of your other videos similar distortion happens.

there is another setting on good quality microphones for how intense the recording for relative to how close the noise source is. If you are too close you can reduce the microphone setting if you have a good microphone. otherwise just try to keep your distance from the mic and put a sock on it.
