  1. there's a game by Fischer that he takes on h5 with the g pawn and somehow manages to trough his c6 knight into g4 to a king side attack and that h5 pawn actually acts like a suppot point, so…

  2. nice video! good analysis as usual! It'd be more awesome if the comp eval wasn't there. I know it's new, but it's just a suggestion 🙂

  3. Hey Jerry, I am still quite a novice at chess so do you mind explaining what the chess term "tempo" means?

  4. 4:40 why didn't either the rook or the bishop take the free pawn on h7?

  5. lol I laughed pretty hard at 2:22 about taking away from the center 🙂 good commentary

  6. what software do you use to analyze the moves?

  7. Jerry what chess software are you using here?  Thanks.
