    Hello RHP community,

    So far I have uploaded around 50 chessvideos on Youtube. I will continue doing so, but I would like some help from you.

    I've got 2 goals

    1) Providing chessmaterial that players <2000 would like to see
    2) Getting as many relevant views as possible (I dont want to lure people who are not interested)

    ----------------------

    ----------------------

    My questions for you

    1) What would you like to see?
    2) Got any tips in getting more relevant views?

    Any help is much appreciated. This is my Youtube channel

    I would want to see live games like ChessNetwork or Kingscrusher but with longer time controls.

    We want Opening Traps 🙂

    The vids are quite short. Are you under a time restriction, do they have to be under 4 minutes?

    The Steinitz v Curt von Bardeleben game.

    YouTube&feature=channel

    Deserves to be shown in full as the build up to that position is very instructive.
    I like the fact you gave your own analysis after 25 Rxh7+ Qxh7 (including missing
    an acknowledge mate in one) 😉 But the critical line is 25...Kg8.

    That lad who added in the comments that von Bardeleben left the tournamnet
    hall and comitted suicide is quite wrong. Unless von Bardeleben jumped from a
    very high building. The game was played in 1895, he died in 1924.

    Also who played the remaining games? His ghost?

    This game was played in round 10. (and won the tournament brilliancy prize.)
    von Bardeleben did not, contary to popular belief did walk out of the tournament.

    The loss does however seems to have had some affect. It sent him on
    run of 8 games without a win.

    Rd 11 He lost to Blackburne
    Rd 12 He drew with Janowski
    Rd 13 He lost to Walbrodt
    Rd 14 He lost to Chigorin
    Rd 15 He drew with Tarrasch
    Rd 16 He lost to Tinsley
    Rd 17 He lost to Pillsbury
    Rd 18 He drew with Schiffers
    Rd 19 He beat Gunsberg
    Rd 20 He drew with Teichmann
    Rd 21 He beat Marco

    He finished 7 equal with 11½ points W8 D7 L6
    22 players took part.

    Discussing this game I never fail to point out that von Bardeleben did not
    walk away because he was lost and in the huff.

    He had complained that when a game was finished the clapping of the
    spectators put the other players who games were still in progress off.
    He knew the finish of this game would raise the roof so in the interest of his
    fellow players he left the hall and lost on time.
    According to Edward Winter he told Steinitz he would be doing this.

    An interesting character was our von Bardeleben and not a bad player either.
    He liked to experiment with openings. Here is the opening from his win v Marco.

    1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7


    The opening we now call 'The Modern.' 😕

    Here is the full Steinitz - von Bardeleben game with the 'missing' Steinitz variation.

    When I play in chess tournaments, I get the order backwards- I commit suicide, and then I leave the tournament hall...

    One thing I would do, nothing to do with chess, I did like your games there, but at least one game shown, Nimzo V Alapin, the mike gain was way too high and crashed quite a bit. In digital sound as opposed to analog, if you go up against the ceiling, the highest volume a digital system can make, if the input exceeds that level it makes a scritching sound, not pleasant. If an analog signal overdrives it goes into a bit of distortion but doesn't make the crashing sound of overdriven digital audio.

    I know quite a bit about that, I am a musician with a home recording system, based on Cakewalk's Sonar and a nice I/O box, the RME hammerfall, 8 in's and 8 outs.
    You have to be very careful to stay 3 or 4 db away from the ceiling or you get terrible scritching. So cut down the level or run through a compressor that can automatically limit the upper end, you can find that stuff online for free, like Audacity, a free audio mixing and processing software.

    Anyway, enough of that, just thought you would like to know. Don. I still loved the video's though.

    Thank you all very much for your input so far. 🙂

    To respond to a few questions and remarks


    1) The sound and speaking.
    In the comming uploads the sound will be ok.
    I'll try to watch my articulation and speak more slowly.

    2) Time restriction
    For some reason every upload had to be under 10 minutes. Youtube has just waved that.
    So I will be uploading longer videos. But will also keep uploading 5-10 minute videos.

    You'd like to see me talking during a (lets say 30 minutes each) game. Throughout the entire game? or just the analysis?

    yeah the idea is that we get your train of thought during an actual live game, just like thinking out loud. 🙂

    Playing while thinking out loud so to say. Kind of like the master game series.

    Rook endings! 🙂

    I'd say picking out famous endings would work. Say QGA type endings (typically drawish) that were revolutionary, or carried a new big idea (a karpov win comes to mind right away) and things of that nature, or Semi-Slav famous endings.

    But definitely Rook Endings.
