Come on man, I buy this for basically my last credits, and the result is visible within the first 2 seconds of the video? Pretty weak to be honest, was no point even watching it. I hope your future videos aren't like this :(

Really? There's no point in watching it just because you saw the result? If you just wanted to see Greg's results in the tournament you could easily Google search and find them within 10 seconds. It IS annoying that the results are right there, but there's "no point in even watching it"? Really?? You should be buying the video to listen to Greg's analysis and thought process throughout the match, and to subsequently learn from his play and teachings...not just for the results.

Dude why are you telling me why I should be doing things? What are you even doing? I've played maybe 5 games of chess in the last 10 years. I don't play chess. I watch these videos because they're entertaining to me. Who do you think you are, telling me what I should and shouldn't be using these videos for and how I should and shouldn't be feeling about what's important to me about them?

Get over yourself and stop with the condescending douchetard tone.

Jesus christ man calm down, I didn't mean to so deeply offend your apparently fragile ego. From your original post it seemed that the main reason you watch is to see the results, and I simply wanted to let you know that there are easier and cheaper ways to find that. Perhaps I was wrong by saying what you should be using them for; I guess I didn't realize that people cared so much about just having the result spoiled for them.

Kids! Don't make me turn this car around!

While I agree that it was a shame the score was posted, it is not a big concern to me. I've already looked at Greg's games - and many of the others from this event. I like to look at the game, come up with some questions and see if Greg addresses them in his commentary - which, not surprisingly, he always seems to do in a nice clear manner.

Showing the score was a slip, and Greg pointed this out. I don't expect it to happen again, but if it does, he still gives excellent advice IMO.

Sorry guys, while hiding the result is something I always try to do, I do not think it should be the primary focus of the video, so if I accidentally show the result somewhere, I don't think it makes sense to reshoot the video, as I imagine the large majority of people watch the videos for other reasons. Maybe for fun, in order to avoid spoilers like this in the future, I will occasionally intentionally put the wrong result up so that you know that even if I do make a mistake like this (and it's very easy with ChessBase to make this type of error), then you won't know for sure the result of the game.

Also as is pretty clear, the result is shown clearly in the intro screencap to the video, so it's not as though there is no warning. If you are worried about this in the future, you might want to check that as well.

Balancing your revealed results range, I like it. :)

It looks like Black could have claimed a draw with 40...Be4 if he wanted.

This kind of self-analysis is very valuable for tournament players in my opinion. Greg is showing us the way. Trying to win 'won' games with a change in pace etc. is a critical trait for anyone. I know I'm watching this way too late (lol) but just want to let you know I'm learning a lot.
