I'm posting up a video series soon on tetris.. basically lessons from noob level to "pretty good" level...
Each video will aim to be a good intro (i.e. after watching the video players should understand the crap and then go explore the idea on their own/on the forum). Here is the video plan.

Basically there are three parts - tetris, tspin, downstack.

Tetris/Stacking (i.e. basics)
1) Building and completing Tetrises
2) Platforming, Skimming and Filling
3) Increasing speed mechanically

Downstacking (i.e. still basics)
4) Downstack principles (forecasting, terrible moves)
5) Downstack combinations (simple combinations)
6) Downstack - dumping

T-spins (i.e. less basic)
7) T-Spin intro
Hot.png T-spin basic setups
9) T-spin slightly less basic setups
10) T-spin openings
11) T-spin triples

Putting it together/misc
12) Downstacking and t-spins
13) Large attacks
14) Timing attacks/All in's
15) Sacrifice/Donation

The basic idea will be:
Intro/basics, not-very-in-depth episode
Lots of small tips episode(s)
Misc. episodes

Like many setups here, it is useful if your opponent doesn't move and you get 4 Ts in a row.

How often do you plan on updating each video? Didnt your other video take you over a year to do?

Just watched your first video. It's pretty good. Smile.png I really need to improve my stacking. My 40L average is 3 minutes. Sticking Out Tongue.png

By the way, what's a smurfer?
