  1. It hurts especially when you blunder a queen from a superior position

  2. Holy sheit this channel has skyrocketed since I last visited, and he was only on 1 mil and most of his videos never got past 100k. Look at this man now. Fanstastic just like his skills for this game.

  3. My takeaway from this as a sub 700 player: "Think Harder" Dayum, I was hoping for something a little easier than that.

  4. I remember watching this video when it came out!!!

  5. Thanks to this channel I am getting better and better in chess

  6. Small error. "King cant move." You meant to say "Knight cant move." or "Knight Pinned". 9:22
    Great video tho! Thankyou!

  7. i basically just started playign chess, around a week now and i've been watching a lot of your videos and during this week i managed to reduce my blunders from 48 to 6-9. i still struggle some, but learning those tricks and how to calculate has been helping me a lot

  8. Chess players are so greedy, stuck up on a single damn pawn man !!

  9. Practice your calculation skillz with chess puzzles.
