I’m still watching alphazero games

It’s just amazing how that program has changed chess more than any human player

He makes this opening look so easy. It's not, but it's a really good one to know if you're a learner. So many clever traps in this opening.

At least skip to 22 minutes in. Unless you want to see the commercials that precede even the commentary.

The actual games begin at around 45 minutes in.
