Andrew Martin and The Basics of Winning Chess The Opening 1.b) Get castled

Besides reviewing tactics from PCT the 2nd time around, i have also watched the 2nd part of the 1st chapter on the opening, of the Andrew Martin and The Basics of Winning Chess DVD. This time it was all about the importance of getting castled. The following game is used as an example. And once again it is a very clear example. So please, do watch. It is a game between Sergey Karjakin and Romero Holmes
(click to replay) in which Romero Holmes chooses to experiment and holds of castling at a point when he should have (at move 10), and ends up losing the game as a result.

If you want my advice, i would tell you to "get castled" :)
