  1. KC, If I understand the question correctly, and I believe I do, then don't "cute and fluffy ideas LEAD TO dangerous weapons"?….isn't THAT the way it should be taken anyway?
    Any further discussion much appreciated. Cheers! -JS

  2. you kept talking about playing a6 and then you play it at the end of the vid there.

    what is the point of this move, I dont understand why you wanted to play it?

  3. interesting theoretic thoughts. You have to write a column maybe?

  4. Hmmm, I thought it would be ok to castle queenside in my 2nd game that day against another FM because of the g file. But White has the a pawn as a battering ram with the rook on a1 to balance the g file.

  5. A Morozevich speciality. This system is a lot of fun to play.

  6. what is your rating?
    good video!!!

  7. sound like the audio is better, or mabie its just me
