    Chess instruction as it should be, clear and concise. This is by far the best instructional video I have seen on chess.com.

    Excellent video!  

    As everyone else has said, the pacing is perfect.  You're getting the ideas across, without going into sidelines that never happened.  

    I'd love to see some videos on controlling squares,(Masters are always talk about attacking on black/white squares, but us lower level players rarely even think about such concepts) and lots (lots) more endgames.

    I'd like to second flatseven's comment about the pace. Excellent pacing indeed! Don't get me wrong, I love Danny's occasional rant the first time I watch a video of his, but they sometimes get in the way of reviewing the video, whereas Mike's commentary is fast and to the point. Well done!

    I enjoyed the idea that gxf6 was actually a pawn-structure-weakening capture.  It's a simple point that I would have overlooked in my own games.  Thanks.

    Mike, in that last position where you chose to reposition your knight to d5, could you have equally gone to b7 via a5, targetting both his central pawns and thus creating the third passer? Thanks for your thoughts. The video was greatly appreciated!

    I love the pace of this video.  I don't have to sit around listening for 3 minutes before seeing a move.  This is like brain candy.  Thanks.
