Mato I honestly love your videos. You get straight to the point and dont waste time. Your videos are short and I learn so much listening to you compared to these other guys who just ramble on about as if there so good and your voice, accent, its perfect to be a teacher. I would love to shake your hand one day in Toronto, Canada. You sound like a very honest man who loves chess and so do I but I suck. Getting better watching your videos so pls keep it up. Im a little drunk but I speak the truth when Im drunk.

This is a lesson that king must always have more pieces around him at any point.

Wow, just an amazing game ! At first glance, we have the impression that white only wanted to have less pieces on the board ! But, you must wait until the end to discover the brillant idea hidden behind these sacrifices. a pretty great combinaison !
Mind blowing !!!

Hi Mato, I watched quite a few of your videos now, they are first class, I am learning so much and my game is improving all the time, your explanations and alternative continuations are so easy to follow, they help a lot with thinking ahead in a game and seeing the bigger picture, this game was awesome for sure. Thanks for taking the time to make the videos. Unremarkably, I too am a descendant of Adam!!
