I recently issued a YouTube chess challenge to a player called KingsCrusher. We have finally gotten around to playing some games. Click here to see the games with live annotations (http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=22000A355C3F95C3). This was a dual-annotation match. You can also see the games from my opponent's point of view on his channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/KingsCrusher). The games were 5-minute blitz games played on the Internet Chess Club.

I'm inexperienced at doing live annotations, so they aren't very extensive. Check it out and tell me what you think!

I really enjoyed that. The games were great. I think because it is blitz live commentry is hard so perhaps just concentrating on the tactics would be easier. Also gives in an insight into how a really strong blitz player thinks.

I also enjoyed beating the IM's! Keep up the good work!
