  1. At 5:10, is there anything wrong with white playing Bc1 and simply repeating the position?

  2. Bishop goes back to e7, but it still is developped.(controlling a3-f8 diagonal)
    If white puts his bishop back to c1, it's no longer controlling a5-e1 diagonal. Only the c1-h6 diagonal, where there is no activity. At all. So you would be underdevelopping and lose time. (black: 2 moves and bishop is developped. White would lose 2 moves to gain nothing.)

  3. Daniel…. there is no Queen's Indian series in Chess.com video library…. ๐Ÿ™
