Apr-01-13  Octal: I hear he's writing a book on the Nimzo-Indian.
May-20-13  Hot Logic: I'd buy that book! He does such a good job explaining openings and games in his videos.

Opening Repertoire: Nimzo and Bogo Indian

Apr-21-14  Psihadal: His channel is, in my opinion, the best chess channel on youtube. He has a very clear way to explain chess, be it in live blitz videos, game kibitizing or opening analysis. Also has a very refined sense for position and of strategy which makes his videos very instructive to learn from.
Apr-21-14  Shams: <Psihadal> I agree, he's great. And having just switched to 1.d4, I'm basically playing his entire fifteen-video "1.d4 repertoire" series right out of the box. Love the guy; he's a great resource.
