Mark Burcham – Oxford, Alabama USA :
Just a note to say how much I enjoy your ICC gambit lectures. I look forward to each Thursday with notepad at hand to listen and learn. I am 55 years old and have only been serious about chess for the last 4 years, so the content of your lectures interests me very much. I always enjoy learning and you help tremendously with your fine lectures. I am also studying the Russian language (only for the last few months), so I also enjoy listening to your accent. I think you do a very good job with English.
I am sure I speak for many when I say thank you and that I believe you do a fine service for all of us as students of the game, regardless of our age.
Lee Phillips (ICC – Morphic6) :
I watched you lessons on the Evans Gambit and Danish Gambit. I would like to state that I am from Australia and chess isn’t one of our major sports, also my game play was very poor before I studied your Gambit Guide and even though I have a long way to go before I am at your level, you have changed the way I play chess and I have improved quite vastly in a short period of time.Thank you once again!
Hi Boris, I listened your nice lecture on Evans’ gambit, part 2. I just wanted to notice that (from what I know), ALONZO Morphy is not Paul’ brother, but Paul s’ FATHER. Cheers!
Hi GM Alterman! I have been following your gambit series with much interest. Thanks very much for this great work. I have a question in Part II of Evans gambit when black offers Q exchange and you reply nicely with Qb4, could now black repeat the Q swap threat with Nc6?
Hey ! Thanks for excellent and fascinating gambit videos ! Best regards , Bent Hestad , Trondheim , Norway
I am enjoying your gambit lectures. Will you do a lecture on the Evans Gambit Declined with 4…Bb6?
hey, I enjoy your gambit videos…I dont know how or when you decide what to cover, but in case you take recomendations, id like to vote on an interesting playable black gambit: 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 f5!?, i believe its called the calbrenese gambit.
hi I watched your video on opening gambits its brilliant I tried it in a games and Won!( I did have one big mistake) may I say that your a genius..
Dear Grandmaster, thanks for your Cochrane Gambit videos! I just saw the first one. (I have been playing this line since Bronstein recommended it in “200 Open Games”.) One note: After 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Nxe5 d6 4. Nxf7 Kxf7 5. d4 Nxe4 6. Qh5+ Ke7 7. Qe2 d5, 8. f3 is good, but Bg5+ is deadly.
Hi! Your gambit series are awesome! Thanks a lot! Hope one day I have the guts to play them myself. Regards, Helio
I am very impressed with the video lessons you provide for ICC. Thank you for your contribution to the most intellectually challing sport in the world.
