Chess is an intellectual battle where players are exposed to numerous mental processes such as analysis, attention to detail, synthesis, concentration, planning and foresight. Psychological factors are also present on and off the board; playing Chess stimulates our imagination and creativity. Every single move a player makes is the result of a deep analysis based on the elements presented on the battlefield.
Chess in its essence teaches us psychological, sociological and even moral values. In a Chess game, both players start with the same amount of material and time. The fact that the white pieces move first is considered to be practically irrelevant —especially because a player typically plays one game as white and one game as black. Consequently, the final result of the battle solely depends on each player. It doesn’t matter if you win by taking advantage of your opponent’s mistakes or by simply avoiding mistakes yourself. Truth is that Chess is an extremely individual sport and our defeats can only be blamed on ourselves and no one else. And this, in the end, only benefits us because we learn to be and feel responsible for our actions and never come up with excuses to justify ourselves.
We also learn that when it comes to our victories on the board, our opponent’s mistakes play a more significant role than our own skills. Let’s not forget that a Chess game without any mistakes would be a draw. This way, Chess provides us with another valuable life lesson: be humble at all times.

Hello guys! The answer to the second exercise is in the description 👍
Going to watch it again. I followed your logic and recognize the utility of the exercise. For those willing to devote time and effort the next level is in grasp.
That book looks good, I will make sure to pick it up! Thank you again for your videos, I really learned a lot from a lot of them.
If you could play some tournament and analyze your games with us …..that would be pretty cool….
Gotta thank you, my fiance is a big fan even tho she knows nothing about chess.
Thanks for these valuable videos sir
Original way to work on endgames…I wish I would 👍🇨🇵
Hello Coach! Could you please make a short 5-10 minute video onwhat do against 8.Re1 in the Na6 line of the Classical KID? I have seen from your games 8.d5 and 8.Be3 but have no clue about the Re1 stuff.
Also in the mainline(e5 before Na6) I have seen an annoying gambit line (Kozul Gambit) with 13.Rc1 and 14.c5!? . Please look into this and reply back because you are the only expert on KID whom I can ask doubts. Thanks in advance ☺️
I am so happy ! Before going to sleep I put the pieces on a real chessboard and thought about it ( second pattern ). I came back to this video today to check if i was right, and … I was !
Thank you coach, that is a great exercise !
I thought I got the first one but I miss that Bd4 to prevent my promotion. Still need a lot of practices. 😅
The move is Nd6+.. After that every move is losing for black😂.. Only one thing black could do.. RESIGN
