You know me by now, if it's crap I scream from the rooftops it's crap.
If it's OK I say it's OK...If I think it's good, I rec it.

Trust me - these are good and not your usual YouTube Chess Naff.
Andrew Martin has effortlessly put together a batch of vids.
I say effortlessly because the guy is a natural chess teacher.
(I've only met him once so this is not a cosy-cosy we are all chums review).
They are free!
Enjoy and see how it should be done, you will pick up something without any effort.
I stress effortless because it comes across like the lad is sitting in a club
and showing just you the game. Face to face instruction is the best you can get.
There are 10 in the series with a promise of more to come.
I'd be interested in what you think.
A quick review and a link to just four.

Some advice for bidding coaches from an experienced teacher and a good game
that I know more than a few of you will benefit from.

Demolishing the French
A great game stripped of it's mystic and contains a Wow! move.
