Featured is a 15+10 rapid game I played against an opponent rated 1725. The opening is a Taimanov variation of the Sicilian Defense. A key moment in the game occurs when my e5 pawn and knight intersect on the weakest square in Black’s camp. A great portion of my attention from that moment onward is focused on the queenside’s dark square complex. The idea with this type of video is to simply help chess players improve their understanding of the game by sharing my train of thought while I play one rapid time control game. Accompanying my train of thought is a mini blackboard where I list some helpful notes throughout. The “Improve Your Chess Rating” playlist is a work in progress and is meant to compliment the “Beginner to Chess Master” playlist which is primarily theoretical knowledge. The videos in “Improve Your Chess Rating” are not uploaded by order of ratings.

Beginner to Chess Master:
I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
