Look Ma, I'm a Video Star!

Okay, I'm not a star but Game 5 of my match with Steve Kesti for the Reno CC Class B. Ch. (see here) has been video annotated by the excellent Josh Specht at chess-videos.com. What a fine job he's done with it--it was one of my more interesting games, and he points out a lot of improvements. I'm proud of the original Exchange sacrifice concept, but the execution was pretty spotty!

I'm enjoying and learning a lot from the videos over there--it seems to be a medium that resonates with my learning style.

Anyway, here's the direct link to the video on my game, but I recommend you watch them all when you have a chance, and join the site and comment as well.
