    the gm explains the traps well and he is very responsible in telling the audience that it’s not the correct way to only use ‘hope chess’ to play the game, but it’s important to be aware of these techniques so YOU don’t fall into them 🙂 he’s very intelligent but i’m very apologetic to say i have one tiny criticism, he could try to be more relaxed, he speaks as if he is anxious and he seems nervous.
