    Is that really game analysis done by a GM?

    1 - it is not analysis BY Ray Robson?
    2 - Jorge Cori from Peru is the youngest GM

    Not only is it not by Ray Robson, it sounds like it's done by someone with a rudimentry understanding of chess.

    The narrator in the video introduces himself as Jerry. He states a few minor fact errors (Robson is neither the youngest GM in the world nor is he the youngest ever GM from the U.S.; it is true that he is the youngest GM at present from the U.S.). I think it is a bit harsh to criticize the narrator's knowledge of chess as "rudimentary", though I will certainly grant that he does not impress as a player of Master strength or above. Overall, I got the feeling that his analysis was kept simple because he believes his audience consists primarily of novices.

    I was struck by the superficiality of the analysis. Interestingly, the host's MySpace page offers no evidence that the analyst has ever played in a tournament or has any other reason to be considered credible.
