Great video! Very instructive and easy to follow. Thank you!
Complicated stuff… Thanks for the lecture! 🙏
As a Catalan, I feel proud right now. Thanks chess for so much
In the endgame, with the pawn advantage, why can’t black win? I’m a total beginner so have no idea
So great! Magnus is clutch
Hello. Thank you, this was very helpful…
Thank you for this great video
You are a great teacher! Thanks.
Keep intros short
Great lesson! Will apply to my own games 🙂
I only watch this so I can try to go for QID without fearing the Catalan
its a bit fast all these whirling moves all over the board -confusing
at 7:05 the move Ng5 isnt stonger? forcing c6 coz if black play Nd5 we have checkmate on h7
Can see the preparation for this content.
Ringoir phonetically…… Ring wah
wasn't a fan of that opening Nc6 way better than BxR
Giving up the exchange early on might be hard for me to play
great lesson ur videos are great
idk if ur going to see this but in time 34:39 before u psuhed black pawn couldnt you have played bishop B5
time 34:24 Bd4/Bb5
