  1. I think SaI is above BlurryFace, but both of them are overrated, especially Stressed Out

  2. Levy thanks for being patient with us beginners. You don't sound irritated or condescending and you provide information in a concise way, while emphasizing that there is nuance to every concept! You are an awesome teacher!

  3. 6:15 why don't they just castle? Then they are defending that square and castling.. 2 birds with 1 stone.

  4. Wonderful lesson! I'm fairly new to chess and just about 800 myself. I got into Levys videos a while ago and always liked the loud and entertaining style. But boy am I surprised he is a great teacher as well! Calm and motivating at the same time!

  5. Your videos made me the best kid playing chess in my family

  6. "Have you heard that before?" "Yeah" "exactly right." Idk why but this interaction made me cackle lol

  7. When levy said close to half a million, that really hit me

  8. Im just a begginer but u explained bad the "square rule", you dont need to be inside the square, if you r just touching it u also get in time

  9. Tierzoo and gothemchess. The most ambitious crossover since the mcu

  10. Levy thank you so much for share this lessons! I am still far from 800 but you help me learn so much, with your charisma and fun!
    ❤❤❤from the Europe’s Capital (aka Brussels, Belgium).

    Looking forward for the release of your book 📖! 🎉🎉🎉

  11. That was a outstanding chess lesson. I keep that one in me playlist.

  12. What makes Gotham such good teacher is his patience with other players.

  13. at 26:03 , is QxD4 check, d4, ne4 check a bad line? this is what i was thinking of before he discussed castling to stop Nxc2, but i didn’t know if this was better or still good?

  14. 44:30 even if he blocked with the rook, couldn't the queen still mate with e1?

  15. I love this video. I am a beginner and i learn a lot.

  16. Watched the whole video without even forwarding once and it's safe to say I learned a lot.

  17. The debate continues between bishop or knight being worth more. This could be an entire video on JUST that discussion.

  18. We need BLINDFOLD Tutorialllllllllllllllllllllll

  19. You are so sweet and supportive, what a wonderful teacher!

  20. I actually got a lot out of this video, are there any more like this?

  21. U just save me 30 dollar a course 😂 thanks alot i learn so much 😊 👍👌

  22. After Qf7 can white play Qxb7 threatening the rook and a royal fork

  23. 26:30 you could take the paw because you can get a royal fork if they take ur pawn and fork u and ur rook

  24. At 19:20 what about kb5, it checks the king, you can trade knights ang attack b7 pawn

  25. gotham watching tierzoo play: oh darling, oh gorgeous

    gotham watching subs play: YOU FUCKING DONKEY

  26. 27:45 how about confusing opponent by moving my queen back a step to d3 and then a fork with the knight to d4 and taking the queen for the knight?

  27. this was great!!! Can you do more content like this??

  28. Bishops are predictable.. knights are slippery.. I'd rather crush a knight with bishop..😅

  29. I'm 300 elo. I was happy that I was noticing alot of the stuff this 800 noticed… But then I realized, I'm 300 because it's like I just can't see it when I'm actually playing.

    I'm an 800 elo viewer, and 300 elo player lol

  30. I fell down the chess lesson rabbit hole and this is by far the best instructional video I’ve watched. Such a great exchange

  31. At 36:41 what if you sent Rook to E6, pawn takes Rook, take back with bishop, queen is forced to take bishop Bc mate in 1 with Queen to D8, take their Queen with your Queen, they slide their Rook to G8, and then move Queen to E6 for a fork. I went through the check -> capture -> attack and saw the attack on the queen/Rook sacrifice and then everything else followed
