  1. username: to_my_pie , I have played ~16montha. Thank you for the video. is there week2?

  2. Good explanation love the visual perspective 👍

  3. Hi, thanks, HITBOX83 been playing about 6 months, but played a few games in my youth that does not count.. Stuck just under 1000 and hope to reach 1500 – 1600 as I am 40 and think 2000 is unrealistic?

  4. Awesome video Rob. Would have loved to hear more about what order you investigate candidate moves in, and why (how it optimises the process of finding best move). Also, pawn to c6 blocking the check and I’m calling the arbiter!!

  5. In the second game, after Ng3. Black has …c4, with a tempo on white’s queen and shutting down the diagonal for white’s light sq. bishop? Though white has Qa4 after …c4.

  12. Excellent video, Robert. I really enjoyed. You are a great teacher.

  13. In the second puzzle, white can actually castle long. I think Roberto thought, that it's an illegal move.

  20. The training and the corresponding YT videos are just amazing. Thanks for providing us the opportunity to train with you. One thing, it is not possible to track the progress in the Roaster file, because the cells are looked starting row 120. I would appreciate if you can open them, so I can also track my progress there. Thanks!

  21. Thank you for this video, it was like having you here talking to me. I’m going to follow all these lessons for sure. Once again, thank you Robert.

  23. It really depends on how steep the learning curve is. The higher the performance needed, the steeper the curve has to be.
