This remembers me to a young Duchman I met in my youth. He had to go to a Logotherapist to pronounce that sound correctly and he used the word "Scheveningen" ot explain. He said to us: "Before the therapy I sounded like a German."  Wink

Okay, I was amused.

Incidentally reminds me of remarks by the American (/British) writer Bill Bryson in his book Neither Here nor There.

Well, I was not being entirely serious. It has been known for whimsy to creep in at times within my posts.
Serious snorting. Oh dear.
Mind you, that may actually help him pronounce Scheveningen correctly, if Dutchies are to be believed.

Oh dear - Gorm under the weather.
Mild sniffles, or major snorting, and some wiping of nose on sleeve and such like? Details please.


Assume you're being sarcastic?



I didn't need to assume Smiley

Yes, occasional coughing which was bearable which descended into some serious snorting by the time he got to  the Scheveningen by which time I had to stop watching Smiley.

I agree, not Danny's fault, they should have rescheduled.

But it's always the way it seems with Chessbase that there is no editing (pregnant pauses and body noises could easily be removed) or retakes  Huh

From what I did manage to watch, I found it useful and certainly hope it will give my English Attack a boost, just as long as they don't play e6  Wink

I also found the snorting a tad disgusting. I don't blame Gormally as you can't help being sick, but perhaps the videos could have been re-recorded.

Dear Chessbase,

If your presenter has a cold, please reschedule the recording  Smiley

Well surely more than plans and ideas, but good question.

Does he go into (theoretical) detail or is it just about plans and ideas?

For some reason i had thought he only opened 1d4 and that his comments on the video about adopting the English attack where just salesmanship...but looked up some of his games and he does open 1.e4 as well, which is good news as he can be quite entertaining.

He covered the Open Sicilians when he was writing for ChessPublishing, just over a year ago, http://www.chesspublishing.com/content/4/jan14.htm for example.

when you say "PC-DVD" what exactly do you mean. It will only play on a PC or can we play in on a normal player?

I somewhat doubt they mean normal TV DVDs - all of these Chessbase products generally only run within Chessbase. There are actual movie files on the disk themselves, but they don't contain any board information, you'd just see the presenter clicking on a mouse and talking - Chessbase (or Chessbase reader, Chessbase Light, whatever the heck it is) generally ties the videos together in real time with the moves on the actual board. I don't see how they'd do this on a normal DVD player.
