  1. Hey King not sure if you saw black's bishop on c5 on hat tangent you said would mean black would have been okay with at 1:50, his rook is pinned to the king and will be lost .

  2. i always like when you get philosophical, so wise and insightful. great vid, keep it up.

  3. Enjoyed the video. So sad he died so young. x

  4. Very good tactics here, kind of a double smother mate

  5. I had not heard of Mr. Derrickson. Thank you!
