Video #12 is not quite as good as the Karparov-Short video. The commentators are really loud and they insist on showing the board (not too clear) as the players make their moves instead of using the demo board to illustrate and analyze the games. The demo board is seldom used.

I thought I remember hearing/reading someone complaining about them, so I prepared to be disappointed. But I must admit, I kind of liked it! I guess it was actually watching Kasparov (for example) play, if only for a few minutes at a time that made is sorta cool....but I guess I'm just a chess nerd!
