  1. Anyone else imagine the intro with Jonathan on violin and Mike Hummer rockin out to guitar.

  2. What about d4, d5 and then b3 is that a good opening?

  3. Your video is excellent instruction you do a masterful job Thank you

  4. A lot of London fans out there at the lower levels. I like the qgd but usually if my opponent plays d4 their next move is almost always Bf4
