Mike Kummer. Most chess videos are presented by players who speak too fast because they've got this shit figured out and don't care if you can follow what they are saying. But this guy is a good presenter. He's fast, but not too fast to follow, and interesting to listen to.



I have a long history with chess although I haven't played it much until lately. When I was little I followed the Fischer vs. Spassky matches very intently, copying their moves on my own cheap little chess board. It was great fun because it was not only two great intellects vying for championship, it was America versus the USSR.

A co-worker recently brought his fancy acrylic chessboard to work so he could get some use out of it, and some practice with the game. I gut suckered into playing after taking interest in a game he was playing with someone else.
