  1. What openings did YOU play the most this year?!?

  2. This is a very weird joke, because bongcloud and grob are included, but the rest is somewhat normal stuff.

    At my level (800-1200) most common are everything starting with e4 + London & Indian Game. These cover about 90% of my games, if not more.

  3. What is this Russian School of Chess I've heard so much about and will Dina reveal its secrets?

  4. Very interesting and entertaining

  5. It would be great having instructional videos of those openings, traps and where to be careful

  6. You talk too fast.
    And then, I realized I had playback speed on 1.75X.

    Merry Christmas and happy new year.
