  1. Thank you for these videos. I haven't played chess since I was a child and have been challenged to play by one of my students! This has been very helpful in prodding the memory banks. 🙂

  2. I like the flow of these videos, I just came from how to the pieces move and how to set up the pieces on the board straight to how to play.

    Thank you mate, I am learning.
