  13. This is truly an awesome video, more such videos will be great! It feels like we are sitting in front of a GM and asking basic questions and the explanations are very instructive. I think there is a book by GM Gulkov with a similar format where he gets questioned by an amateur or an IM on how the GM thinks…
