    Hi folks

    My name is Tony and I play for and run Leeds Chess Club, I am also the club webmaster.

    I have recently started a Youtube chess channel that contains chess lessons, opening, middlegame & endgame. It contains OTB games that I have annotated and also blitz/ bullet games with live commentary. The idea behind this is for people to enjoy the videos and some of the mistakes, also for players to learn.

    You can find the channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/TonyChessVids?feature=mhum.

    Please subscribe to the channel, give me any feedback and also you can email tony@leedschessclub.org any suggestions/ ideas for future videos.

    Many thanks
    Tony.

    About this Reti pawn race video, what if black plays 1.Kb6?

    Black's pawn can give the white king one more move before he has to take off. No?

    Thanks for showing the line. I even ran through it on my board at home and I still had white winning!

    Always glad to share what little knowledge I possess.
