Live Commentary Videos - Season 1 - Games 1 to 100



Candidate Master (CM) Tryfon Gavriel aka Kingscrusher - pioneering with Chessworld and the youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/kingscrusher has lots of entertaining live commentary games, opening videos, news report videos, etc. A new style of chess - for entertainment is a throwback to the Romantic era of chess, when combinations and speculative sacrifices pleased the crowd. But now, it is just online, so it's a bigger crowd than the old cafes of the past such as 'the Cafe de La Reagance' :)

Many thanks to mrengler1 on Youtube for this Index by Opening and Colour Playing
