  1. That king's gambit was instructive for me, because I have a bad score against that line. In your opinion is that line playable in classical chess at the IM/GM level?

  2. When is a 45+45 game coming? I'd love to see your complete thought process, John.

  3. Wow john you better slow down on the videos before we get to spoiled!
