  1. Can you sense it? Can you see it? Can you feel it? GINGER POWER

  2. Serxue Gold is pretty useless in survival says:

    u r insane i love to see videos like this more

  3. I thought you won Nakamura! 😅

  4. The Dutch seems like a very dynamic opening with much potential.

  5. very solid attacking chess. Thoroughly enjoyed that game.

  6. Simon, have you considered putting any of these dee vee dee's or your books out on Chessable? I don't know how the revenue works out for authors there compared to doing it on your own, but I really enjoy using their spaced repetition to practice and would love to work on the openings I've gotten from your DVD's like that

  7. Just finished your new DeyVeyDey, Simon. Good job! Thanks
    Will you now stop playing the beloved "classical"? 😛

  8. I don't recommend buying the Leningrad Dutch to any of my opponents.

  9. Great video as usual and maybe it is just me but I "see" things better with white at the bottom. Is it just me? LOL 🙂

  10. Great ! Superb !! Long live the Dutch (and its best Knight)!!

  11. outstanding you beat ravi teza i f i am not wrong thxx superb great great

  12. rf3 is the whole brillint move of the game and taking the knight isntead of qh4

  13. wow, you completely rekt that poor guy. Now I'm tempted to order a copy!

  14. Beautifully played. I've never been a fan of the Dutch, particularly the Stonewall. I might have to check out this video, Simon.

  15. Thanks to you Simon my only reply to 1 d4 is f5. I feel having watched all your vids my game has improved so much. Have a great xmas mate.

  16. I bought the Leningrad Dutch DVD , great DVD , you made me a believer in the Dutch I have had some good wins with it myself.

  17. "just another brick in the wall, doo doo" 


  18. Hi Simon, I have an important question: Is this the dutch defense proper?

  19. Thank you for the game and the exceptional Leningrad Dutch DVD. The thoroughness and depth of coverage of the DVD is exemplary. I can wholeheartedly recommend it as one of the finest opening DVDs ever produced.

  20. Beautiful attacking chess. Lovely game.

  21. Boom! Have you played it since then? Your recent games seem to have mainly been classical or Christmas tree ?
    The thing is though Simon . Your play here is so brilliant that it doesn't convince me I should play the lenningrad. I understand your classical attacks much better

  22. "It'd be nice to get a bit of cash" tickled me

  23. The tactical flourishes at the end are brilliant & very enjoyable. Bravo!

  24. Love these kingside attacks hammered home with unusual brilliant tactical flourishes
