  1. I posted a long comment, on another of your videos, with links to my games against stockfish (lichess 3000) from one of the positions from this lecture. The comment got deleted ( I guess, because I provided external links). So, I will cut my story short now and I won't provide any links to the games. Stockfish (with black pieces) can't hold the position from the thumbnail (most of the time) and can't win it either with white pieces (at least, on my laptop). It is a curious fact.

  2. Hi, I want to ask that at what rating level a player should start studying annonated classical games?
    Like I am around 1200, so am I qualifued to study alekhine games? Will It help me in any way or will It be too advanced for me?
