  1. My shortest tournament game (60 minutes for game):

    1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 Bg4 4. dxe5 Bxf3 5. Qxf3 dxe5 6. Bc4 Nf6 7. Qb3 b6 8.
    Bxf7+ Ke7 9. Qe6#

  2. Good video. Production quality up. Liked the little font graphics with Fischer vs Morphy idea. Must admit hadnt seen gxf3 which is very logical. You also seem more and more comfortable in front of the camera. Your English is good. Just trust it and yourself 🙂 Good luck.
