  1. Thank you Kings! I never want this series to end!

  2. Hi everyone, just wanted to say that when I started watching Kingscrusher uploads I was rated about 1400 on Now I am (if I win my next couple matches) about to become a USCF expert. Thank you so much Kingscrusher for helping to make my dreams come true.

  3. Your narration was explicit and to the point. I wanted to see the end of the game.

  4. This is a beautiful game. Got to simply love these positional and strategic games.
