10 out of 10! Imagine learning

10 out of 10! Imagine learning a variety of positional and tactical themes from a 5 time World Champion in your own home and it is affordable! GM Anand is a very good presenter as well as a former World Champion. He has a calm demeanor but his voice is not monotone and his lessons are presented at a good pace. I loved all the topics chosen from weak squares, misplaced pieces, raking bishops to mating nets and tactics. He uses his own games to share his insights with the viewer and each lesson left me feeling like I understood the point of what he was trying to say. The Chess 24 video features a split screen with the board on the left, the presenter on the right, and the moves in writing underneath which makes it easy for the viewer to follow along. Annotated PGN's of the games and puzzles to cement the knowledge are included. I also like the fact that the chapters are descriptive and not just numbered which makes it easy to find a particular topic fast.
