    I would be careful with Jrobi's vids as they all are stuffed with errors. (esp. his early vids which are from someone who is probably 1450)

    I have watched some of his videos and I like him. But he is definitely not the technician. I think he is good for players at rating udner 1400.

    The problem with JRobi is that he waffles on for ages before actually doing anything! and then when he does, its so general as to be practically useless, especially his openings videos!

    GM Henrik Danielsen has also done live commentary blitz videos, as well as some specifically about his favourite opening, 1.f4, which he calls the Polar Bear.

    remember having watched some GM Danielsen videos in the past. they were excellent. the polar bear is a system where white plays the leningrad system with the white pieces.
