We did analysis on one of my favourite games of the season.

Interesting and high level commentary! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Joshua!

Here's another one:

Interesting again. I gotta ask, though... Are you playing guess the move even though you've already seen the game? Hahaha.

mronemore is tough. I wasn't able to crack him in either of my games, and he's quick to punish a mistake I can tell you from experience... Nicely done by Aromas. Fantastic tactical shots there at the end.

Just to mention, there are a couple points in the video where you guys are running through variations, and I am pretty sure moving the pieces on the board, but for some reason the board wasn't updating until the end of the sequence.

Yeah, there is something wrong, I might change the video capture software and hope for better result.

Here's third one in series: Aromas - maxmin, featuring Aromas.

Also interesting. Nice guest commentator.

Only other piece of feedback would be to shorten the videos so that more people could watch.

Yeah in that case the format should be changed to more informative, instead of speculative. :) Thanks for feedback.

That said, I prefer this (looking at variations/analysis) to the quick recap videos you did before. I can learn better from this, especially seeing how top players think. I only give that feedback because I notice there aren't a ton of views on the videos, and perhaps part of it may be the intimidating lengths.

You might consider running through the game and stopping at key positions to get input if you want to shorten the videos. Otherwise, these are cool videos.

Quite instructive video showing many tactical lines, some opening ideas and indeed a magic final touch. :)

Joshua, maybe you're right about the duration of the videos being a bit intimidating to some viewers, but then I wonder: how interested are they in watching an analysis of a TL game? Probably not as much as you and I, for instance? I for one lose track of time when playing, studying or watching chess.
