Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-21-05  KingG: I guess this guy is one of the leading experts on the King's Gambit since he actually plays it in correspondence games with good results.
Nov-25-05  The Saragossa Man: Does anyone out there know about the Squares Strategy DVD's of Alexander Bangiev? Are they worth buying? Any comments will help. Thanks.
Nov-25-05  KingG: <The Saragossa Man> I don't know anything about it, but here is a review:
Mar-14-06  azaris: This guy seems to be some sort of mad genius. I browsed through the review of his "Squares Strategy" DVD on and was completely baffled from reading the review alone!

Is there anybody who's looked at the material Bangiev presents and managed to make any sense out of it?

Sep-17-06  sitzkrieg: What is actually the (revolutionary)idea of the square strategy?
Nov-11-06  ketchuplover: Here's my squares strategy. Put your pieces on their most effective squares.
Oct-02-10  BIDMONFA: Alexander Bangiev
