  3. You're a good teacher. Thanks for this gentle introduction

  4. can’t ready to teach anyone how to play chess

  5. Why is it that people who are masters in a field are so far removed from beginner that they suck! at explaining stuff to beginners. 😂

  6. okay l'm 8 years old and my 18 YEAR BROTHER FORSED ME TO SEE THIS VIODEO DUDE!!

  7. Very well explained, just going to take some time to reinforce all of the information

  8. Gotham: Don't bring your queen out early

    Nelson: what

  9. Does "*On Poissant*" work on any pieçe on a diagonal slash or just a pawn on a double jump

  10. This is great stuff! I taught the basics to my Partner and we love playing in the evenings to wind down.

    I wanted to add a little more knowledge to my game and this is just what I was looking for.

    Thank you!

  11. I need you to tell you about something on the 2 minute rundown. Make sure you dont force the king TO THE CORNERS. If you do, it will result in stalemate IF you still moved your queen the same way the king did. If the opponent king lands on a corner, bring out your king and move forward until it goes behind the queen’s attacking horizontal/vertical line, then do the “In Your Face” check.

    Edit: I never mentioned this, but it has to be A BIT NEAR TO THE OPPONENT KING before you do the “In Your Face” thingy.

  12. I just got checkmated by the 250 bot that you can change so i feel like absolute dog shit but i got back with 3 checks

  13. Thank you man I really learned to how chess do I'm only 10 and now I learn how to move

  14. is anyone here no longer a beginner and able to help me review games? i’m getting very frustrated as it’s hard to find things to learn the opening, everything i find is just opening theory/book openings and at my elo people don’t do that

  15. Thank you for helping me on learning how to play chess 😊

  16. 'Kings are like queens except they are kinna not at all' was so accurate

  17. Speaking of chess, who wants to play some chess? ♔♚♕♛♖♜♗♝♘♞♙♟

  18. The "in your face" checkmate hahahahaahhahaha

  19. I've been getting stuck in a never ending check loop until this video 😭

  20. 3:20. I thought pawns can only move forward. You moved the white pawn diagnally.

  21. I just realized, When he said Its December first, 3 Years has passed.

  22. Wow this is guy is awesome… Exactly the video I needed

  23. I’m confused as a fat kid with a salad..

  24. i thought i will be able to defeat magnus carlsen atleast after watching this video (i am actually going to take revenge on my ex who plays chess so i know her id imma make id with fake name and beat her in game yes she will bear the consequences XD jk)
