|Feb-13-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <Tryfon> that's fabulous if you can record Nigel's simul- why don't you enter and play against him on camera as well?|
Yes this game here-
Petrosian vs Pachman, 1961
Why not make a video of this to add to the Petrosian collection?
A few of the collections might look a little odd- at least for now- because many of them primarily feature the star getting MURDERED by <Bobby Fischer>?!
We can't help it if Bobby was a chess assassin.
So when you have time- eventually, it would be good to put in at least of couple of "immortal wins" by some of the World Champions on the playlists- <Euwe> and <Petrosian> in particular.
Plenty of time in the future for all this, though.
Great new additions to the EVOLUTION series, added to the Master Playlists.
<Pillsbury> in particular that is a famous game for it's struggle, as you point out.
|Feb-18-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <Tryfon> I just watched your epic simul battle with <Nigel>!?|
fantastic stuff what excitement to play a world champion challenger.
I've added the vid to <Nigel's> playlist but I was thinking-
Have you collected every one of your own video annotated games in one place?
As in <Tryfon Gavriel> playlist.
I know you have collected many already but I'm wondering if they are all in one list?
Let me know, and if not, why don't I make an omnibus list with every one of your club/tournament games?
|Feb-19-11|| ||kingscrusher: Hi Jess
It would be great if you could do a more comprehensive equivalent of this page:
which has many of my OTB games, organised by league and tournaments. If you could do a playlist of my OTB games it would be great.
I mentioned your efforts on the last Chessworld system message so I hope your channel is gaining more profile now.
BTW, have you checked out my two recent video polls?!
Quite interesting results. It seems live commentary videos are the most interesting.
Personally I also like live commentary because it reminds me of a programme on TV once called the "Master Game", which I really enjoyed. One of the commentators was William Hartston, which I recently ordered "The Kings Of Chess" a book he wrote about the world champions, and history generally.
|Feb-19-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <Tryfon> I know you love the live commentaries and that's also most popular with your fans. And of course it has the lowest "preparation time to view result" ratio.|
I also enjoy the excitement and emotion of the live commentaries.
I hope you still find time to continue with analyses of your own club/tournament games and your various Master Game series as well.
I enthusiastically recommend Hartston's "Kings of Chess" I read it cover to cover twice this fall.
He is a fabulous history writer and he gets his facts straight- he is one of the very few historians singled out as "accurate" by the notorious <Edward Winter>.
You will love Hartston- that book is gold and it has a great chapter on the Soviet School too.
Thanks for system message and continuing support of my channel- yes of course every time you mention me the views and subs get a bump.
I will start with the page you listed and compile your OTB club and tournament games- that might be the biggest playlist of all?!
|Feb-19-11|| ||kingscrusher: Dont worry Jess - I need the variety, and looking at recent master games is my "food" as well as the historical games. Without food, I have no new ideas for my own games. |
BTW Hartston was a great five minute blitz player - check this page out, in a team 5 minute tournament I play in each year:
Harston is the one with the White t-shirt - I guess you recognise him, if you are enthusiastic about the Kings of Chess - what a strange coincidence you have read it. Please could you recommend me other books for the World champions, which might be good background for the Evolution of style series?!
|Feb-20-11|| ||takchess: We want more videos in the Brilliant Moves of All Time collection !|
This is a good idea for a series.
You may of done some videos on this but an interesting topic is how to know when a tactic is available to you.
or as Heisman refers to it as the Seeds of Tactical Distruction.
That would be a nice series as well.
|Feb-21-11|| ||ChessBookForum: Hello <Tryfon> it's me- Jess.|
I've put on the ChessBookForum hat so as to kill two birds with one stone.
Here are a few Chess History suggestions from my library:
1. Al Horowitz <From Morphy to Fischer - a History of the World Chess Championship>
This volume includes behind the scenes historical details about how every world championship match was arranged- and played. Quite a shocking story in many respects.
2. Gligoric and Wade <The World Chess Championship>
Covers the years from 1948 to 1969- really in depth history of the personalities of the players, and how those personalities translated over the board in unique "chess styles." This book is a must have IMO.
3. Kotov and Yudovich <The Soviet School of Chess>
This is an invaluable document, detailing the history of the "Soviet Chess School," how it worked, and what impact it had on the evolution of style in chess.
4. Mikhail Tal <Tal-Botvinnik 1960>
Fascinating first hand account by Mikhail Tal about how he and his trainer Alexander Koblents analyzed the games, style, and especially opening repertoire of Botvinnik in order to beat him.
5. Nikolai Krogius <Psychology in Chess>
The first chapter of this book provides an intriguing theory about how the personalities of various champions influenced their over the board style.
6. Max Euwe <Meet the Masters>
Invaluable insight into the personality and chess styles of Alekhine, Capablanca, Flohr, Botvinnik, Reshevsky, Fine, Keres, and Euwe.
|Feb-21-11|| ||kingscrusher: Thanks Jess!
Jess, it seems clearer to me from the Hartston book that Capa played very very quickly against opponents - almost in a disrespectful way to them. Do you get this impression as well ?!
|Feb-21-11|| ||kingscrusher: BTW can you do a playlist for my recent new series - the most brilliant moves of all time please - if you have time and enthusiasm for it. I think people do like that emphasis on particular moves.|
|Feb-21-11|| ||madlydeeply: hey dude i love this video what with the nimzovichian stylings of Nigel Short.... i must point out that you missed the tactical threat of Rhe8.... Rxe3 sets up the family fork... at 8:28|
Yeah it's little nitpicky sorry about that You have become my best chess friend i feel through your videos thank you!
|Feb-21-11|| ||madlydeeply: I was talking about this game
|Feb-22-11|| ||kingscrusher: <madleydeeply> Very good point - please put the comment on the youtube video itself if you haven't already. I completely missed that implication of re8|
|Feb-22-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <Tryfon> would you please tell me which was the VERY FIRST video you did on the "Most Brilliant Move Ever Played" series?|
Here is what I have so far-
<Most Brilliant Moves of All Time by Kingscrusher>
A new series by FIDE Candidate Master Tryfon Gavriel that examines brilliant moves in historical chess master games.
|Feb-22-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <Capablanca> was indeed accused of arrogance by just about every single person who ever lived.|
However, I have not seen a reference where a chess player complains that he showed bad manners or deliberate lack of respect in his style of moving quickly.
Morphy also moved very quickly, and like Anand today, sometimes he felt a little embarrassed about it.
I doubt Capablanca ever felt embarrassed about anything to do with his OTB manners.
|Feb-22-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <Tryfon> I've started compiling your club and tournament games- I'm just going to go through every single one of your videos so as to not miss any.|
However, since I'm going to do that using the annoying new "load more" function, whilst I'm scrolling I'm going to compile a separate playlist of all your interviews.
The interviews with <Kaylie> I find particularly instructive?!
|Feb-23-11|| ||kingscrusher: Hi Jessica
This was the first one which inspired the series on brilliant moves:
Even Kaylie's eyes lit up - or was that when blueberries were presented ?!
|Feb-23-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Aha- thanks- so there are in fact four so far in the brilliant move series?|
Let me know if I've missed any.
On other news, I have the last two full years of your own club and tournament videos in a list now- only two more years to go and all of them should be collected.
Well almost all- some of them try to sneak through the cracks by having unusual titles on them- it's kind of maddening that <youtube> doesn't list the whole title unless you hover your mouse over the video listing- and then it doesn't always work, takes a long time.
So I ended up clicking on a lot of videos to see what was actually there- many times it was indeed one of your own games.
I'd forgotten about the post mortems you'd done on some of your internet blitz games- it's been almost two years since you did those. I put them in.
I haven't put a title on yet but why not just
<Tryfon Gavriel by Kingscrusher>?!
Local London punters who know you only as an OTB British Candidate Master may be impressed to learn that you are being annotated by famous web personality "Kingscrusher."
|Feb-23-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Speaking of <Kaylie> I decided to put all of your "live action vids" in one collection- there are lots- Interviews, Doggerviews, Chess socials, Famous Chess tournament venues, Traitor's Gate, Thames History, and even a trip to the zoo.|
|Feb-23-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: One last thing before I go-
<The City of London vs The City of Paris, 1836 chess postal game>
It's one of the most important games in all of chess history, for a variety of reasons.
I think you should make a page for this video on your website- with historical text and photos to go with it.
Like you did for the Evolution of Style and Bobby Fischer pages.
|Feb-23-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Ok there are 198 videos in here- just two under the limit of 200.|
I'm still editing this playlist, so if you have time take a look and let me know if I've left out any important games particularly against titled players?
The "Kingscrusher Movie" playlist is also still being edited- if you notice any important live footage missing please let me know.
<Tryfon Gavriel by Kingscrusher>
FIDE Candidate Master Tryfon Gavriel video annotates his own club and tournament games. Highlights include encounters with GM Nigel Short, GM Mickey Adams, and IM Colin Crouch.
Live action video by FIDE Candidate Master Tryfon Gavriel. Highlights include interviews with GM David Howell, GM Luke McShane, videos of chess venues, footage of letsplaychess Chess Socials, historical tours of London, and a trip to the zoo. Special interviews with Kingscrusher's chess trainer Kaylie.
|Feb-24-11|| ||kingscrusher: Hi Jessica
Thank you ever so much - that is amazing work by you organising all those videos!!
|Feb-25-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <Tryfon> that last game against the IM- a grand effort and really instructive post mortem.|
It takes a lot of guts to play a gambit in a long OTB game against an IM, but I think you have more fun and have more chance to win by sticking to the style of chess you love to play. As you pointed out a while back, "having fun" is a powerful motivator to playing the best game you are capable of.
A few other points to mention-
1. Please remember, when you can, to link the relevant playlist in the introductions to new videos- such as the Larsen-Petrosian "Most Brilliant Move" vid. I know it's kind of a pain in the ass, but every time you remember to do this, it will increase "back views" of other games in the series, particularly among new viewers and fans.
In addition, as you know, the more times a playlist is accessed the higher up it goes on the youtube "search queue" which in turn increases your exposure on chess-related youtube searches.
2. If you look at the comments page on the Larsen-Petrosian "most brilliant move" vid, you'll see my comment about how easy it is to add to your Evolution of Style series at any point on the time line- because you can just use the "sub number system" as you've already done a few times- and on the playlist, it's very very easy to put the videos in historical chronological order. Notice that 7 people voted a "thumbs up" to my comment- this is evidence of just how much long term interest there is in your Evolution of Style series.
3. There's room for one more video in your "Tryfon Gavriel" playlist, and after that I'll start a <Tryfon Gavriel by Kingcrusher Part Two> playlist.
Look your "Tryfon Gavriel" playlist is in reverse chronological order eh? From most recent to oldest.
However, it would only take about 10 minutes to reverse the order.
Which would you prefer?
4. I hope you have submitted your game against Nigel to CG.com?!
|Feb-26-11|| ||kingscrusher: Hi Jess
I just uploaded my 2000th video and I put a thank you in it to yourself and Majnu :)
I put a link to the OTB playlist now from the Playlists page at Chessworld and also near the top of my Channel comments.
You choose the order of the playlists - whatever you think.
Have a great weekend!
|Feb-26-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Congratulations on your Double Millennium Landmark Video!!|
I will indeed have a great weekend?!
You too eh?
Your 2000th video is a wonderful tribute to the game of chess, and to your own love affair with the game- which you share with all of us on youtube.
|Feb-28-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <Tryfon> I noticed those smashing photos you posted on the admin page-|
Hey why not upload a photo of yourself for your CG.com player page?
You can actually make a montage of photos, such as <Annie Kappel> has done here:
I recommend it highly- you could have several photos and include one of you playing Nigel.
Thanks for the recent "gambits" video- and again as I said in a comment a while back- I agree that Wikipedia is getting better and better on their chess entries- a very useful source.
