  1. I don’t know why anyone accepts Stafford gambit against Rosen. It’s like in a cheesy action movie where the main character beats up a dozen guys in a row and then another guy runs in to fight like “now it’s my turn!” Its just dumb. Don’t accept the gambit. You have no chance.

  2. Highly impressive but incredibly stressful repeatedly watching and willing Eric Rosen on to find check mate in complicated end games with 10 seconds left on the clock. And he invariably does it and still manages some idle gossip, making you scream just shut up and focus on the game! You now only have 7 seconds and my heart can't take anymore.
    The man is an absolute machine.
