Thanks for explaining.

Yes, it's really irritating in books and on videos when authors spend too much time on the much later stages.

"I wanna know about the opening stages, FFS. In detail. It shouldn't be hard for you to get that. That's the advertised product."

Reminds me of Sasha Baron Cohen saying in an interview why the proposed Freddy Mercury film never came to fruition. Cos 'a certain person in Queen' - he does not reveal a name - thought that the film should have the lead singer's death at the half-way point, with the rest devoted to post-Freddy, er, 'Queen'.

Interesting. I had seen that available and was pondering.
@Keano - out of interest, could you elaborate perchance... what is so bad? Lack of content? Insufficient depth?
Poor delivery of material?


What I saw of it - Its basically hours of rubbish. Old games he goes over forever with no relevance to the modern problems. He keeps going through the games to the end, explaining the whole game, just an excuse to use up video time. And does not really address any key points.

Surprised Foxy accepted this effort tbh. It is truely terrible and worthless to any prospective London player.

I've seen some clips, it looks truly awful. Would recommend you definitely not to waste any money on this.
